Malone



Fire destroys home


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalte@jcfloridan.com

A home in Malone was destroyed
by fire Monday night. That was the
most serious of three fires county
and volunteer fire departments dealt
with Monday night and Tuesday
morning.
Jackson County Fire Marshal Chuck
Sawyer said a neighbor called in the
house fire, at 5137 7th Ave., around
midnight Monday. The county and


the Malone Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment responded but were unable to
save the structure, which was owned
by James Perry.
Around 6 p.m. Monday, Jackson
County Fire Rescue and Grand Ridge
volunteers helped put out a shred-
der-truck fire. The driver of the truck
pulled over near the intersection of
U.S. 90 and State Road 69 to call for
help when he noticed the fire. The
fire crews helped dump the paper
out of the truck and extinguished the


blaze. The owner of the truck agreed
to clean up the paper debris.
On Tuesday morning, a fire at Cave
Adventurers destroyed an underwa-
ter scooter and a few pieces of inven-
tory at the dive shop but did no struc-
tural damage. Owner Edd Sorenson
extinguished the blaze himself, hav-
ing discovered the fire around 6:30
a.m. The scooter was being charged
at the time, according to Sawyer, and
a malfunction of the charging unit is
believed to be the cause.

Cloudy title means research for county


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Jackson County Com-
missioners will spend an
estimated $1,500 to clear
the cloudy title attached
to the former home of the
county health department.
Until a few weeks ago, the
health department had oc-
cupied a small and aging
building on 4th Street in
Marianna.
When it moved recently


to a new state-of-the-art
building on Caverns Road,
county commissioners be-
gan considering what to do
with the old structure and
the land it occupied. The
city of Marianna wants the
county to hand it over to
the municipality so it can
expand an adjacent city-
run nursing home.
But commissioners aren't
sure they want to give it

Jackson County Commissioners ordered more research in hopes of clearing
the clouded title associated with this building and land, which served until
very recently as home to the Jackson County Health Department.


Educators


react to


FCAT


changes

Cut or passing

scores to be raised
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com
The state Board of Educators raised
the FCAT cut or passing scores on Mon-
day, spurring a range of reactions from
local educators.
New achievement level scores for
grades 3-10 in reading and math for
grades 3-8 aim to bring Florida to a
comparable educational level nation-
ally and better prepare students for col-
lege or a job, the Department of Educa-
tion reported in a press release.
To graduate, 10th graders must have a
reading score of 245 in level 3. To regis-
ter in dual enrollment classes, omit the
PE.R.T. test and go to a Florida college
without taking a reading remediation
course, 10th graders need a reading,
score of 262 in Level 4. For the Algebra
I assessment, Level 3 is the passing level
and Level 4 is the high achieving level.
Superintendent Lee Miller plans to
gather together statistics in January and
use them to describe how the changes
will affect district schools. He said the
new scoring makes it more likely that
students who did well on the FCAT in
third grade will see that mirrored in
their ninth and 10th grade scores.
"The criteria of progression from
grade to grade is more in line," Miller
said.
Graceville Elementary School Prin-
cipal James Sims said that although
he hasn't looked at the changes exten-
sively, what he has seen will impact the
school's scores. He said the school will
continue working hard to be prepared.
"The disconcerting thing about it is
that we could have done as well or bet-
ter as last year and it can make us look
like we've done worse," Sims said.
Cottondale Elementary School Prin-
cipal Brenda Jones said she's confidant
in her teachers and students. The fac-
ulty has been working on a professional
development course. This has helped
them identify new learning strategies to
reach all their students.
"I think we can do it," Jones said. "We
just keep teaching. We work hard all
year long."
Golson Elementary School Principal
Diane Long said although she believes
both students and teacher should be
accountable, the state board should
have eased in the higher standards with
a test run.
"The bottom line, I'm concerned on
how it's going to affect students," said
Long.

"The Glass Fortress" by
M.C. Bechum.
After months of search-
ing for his missing daugh-
ter, Connie, retired in-
surance agent, Michael
Stewart, is thrust into the
center of an Internet pred-
ator investigation.
Acting on a tip from Con-
nie's best friend, the un-
suspecting father wanders
into a house that is being
used by police and a local
television station to bring
child abusers to justice.
The primary interviewer
is an unscrupulous report-
er named Miles Trenton.
Evenf though the offi-
cer in charge recognizes
Stewart and confirms his


story, Trenton notices the
wrongly accused suspect is
armed and demands he be
arrested. During a search
of the Stewart home, a let-
ter is found that leads the
State Attorney to believe
that Michael was indeed
having an inappropri-
ate relationship with his
daughter. Unable to clear
his name and continue
looking for Connie at the
same time, the embattled
family man enlists the ser-
vices of eccentric private
investigator, Pete Masters.
M.C. Bechum lives in

A third Kim has


North Korea by


the throat
S talinist dictator Kim Jong IU's death at age 69
or maybe 70 the official mythology varies
offers the people of North Korea some
small, faint hope that their lives may get better.
Certainly they can't get much worse.
Kim died Sunday aboard his special luxury
train, officially from a stroke due to the stress of
overwork, which seems unlikely given his syba-
ritic lifestyle. (For several years he was the world's
largest purchaser of Hennessey cognac, a luxury,
unknown to his crushed populace.)
Kim Jong I1 ruled for 17 years with really one
objective: to keep the country his father, Kim II
Sung, founded in 1948 firmly in the hands of the
Kim family. Toward that end, he diverted what
foreign aid the country could scrounge to the
military and senior party officials whose loyalty
was essential to keeping him in power.
"Great Leader" Kim ruled for 46 years and
passed the country on to "Dear Leader" Kim who,
faced with two unacceptable sons as leaders,
belatedly arranged for the batbn to be passed to
"Dear Successor," Kim Jong Un, who, believed
to be in his late 20s, was made a four-star gen-
eral in 2010, despite a complete lack of military
experience.
Young Kim seems to be surrounded by a mili-
tary regency overseen by his uncle, Jang Song
Thaek, all of whom may have their own ideas
about who should rule North Korea. To see young
Kim, with his unlined, untroubled moon face,
lined up with his hard-faced, hard-eyed generals
does not inspire total confidence in his grasp on
power.
Indeed, many diplomats fear he may resort to
6ne of his fathers' regular gambits, small at-
tacks on South Korea, random missile launches,
perhaps even a third nuclear test to display his
mettle.
What is stunning after more than 60 years is
how little we know about North Korea. Until
the last two years, no one knew what Kim Jong
Un looked like as an adult. Through a policy of
brutally enforced isolationism, Pyongyang kept
its people from leaving and information about
the outside world from getting in. The system was
enforced by a gulag of slave labor camps, from
which few emerged.
The regime's indifference to the welfare of its
people was breathtaking. In a famine in the mid
'90s at least 1 million people starved to death, but
credible estimates say the number may be more
like 2 to 3 million. Not bad in a nation of only 24
million.
The administration of President George W. Bush
tried repeatedly to deal with Pyongyang, promis-
ing generous amounts of aid if it would give up its
nuclear weapons program. Kim repeatedly broke
his promises, and the Obama administration has
conditioned aid on a verifiable abandonment of
his nuclear weapons program.
Cruelly, the young Kim's greatest weapons may
not be his handful of nuclear weapons or his 1.2
million member armed forces but his destitute
and starving population.
Immediate neighbors South Korea and China
greatly fear that if the Kim regime falters, they will
be overrun by hundreds of thousands of desper-
Ate North Korean refugees. Maybe the bloodlines
are running thin, but among the Kim family
a ruthless determination to hold on to power
seems the dominant gene.

U.S. Army had evidence


Manning was troubled youth


BY DAN K. THOMASSON
Scripps Howards News Service

A TSHINGTON'- The Army
kid who seemingly was
aV responsible for one of the
worst national security breaches
in U.S. history is, to quote the
poet Kris Kristofferson, "a walking
contradiction," who isn't quite sure
who or what he is.
Spc. Bradley Manning is accused
of delivering thousands of classi-
fied documents to an Internet cre-
ation called WikiLeaks, a self-styled
crusader for truth and justice,
whose founder is up to his own
neck in legal difficulties and may
be of more interest to the American
government than Manning. In fact,
there is indication that if the Justice
Department could work a deal with
the kid to spare his life or a forever
term in the brig to help bring down
WikiLeak's Julian Assange, it would
do so.
Some of this reportedly became
clear in a preliminary hearing to
determine whether there is enough
evidence to court martial the
24-year-old soldier who is hav-
ing trouble figuring out whether
he is a man or a woman, at times
apparently preferring the latest
Paris creation to his uniform. And
while he has been described as an
accomplished intelligence analyst,
one thing seems clear at least: He
should never have been in a posi-
tion to handle the nation's secrets.
This guy or whatever during
the course of his enlistment had
revealed enough unsettling infor-
mation about himself to his Army
handlers to have been a chapter in
a budding psychologist's doctoral
thesis. In fact, before he went off to


"If the Army or the Justice
Departmentor whoeveris to
settle on who is to blame for this
frequently embarrassing and
potentially damaging sea of
information released into the
online atmosphere, it seems to
me the list of candidates should
include Manning's superiors."

Baghdad with his unit, he had told
his immediate superior, a master
sergeant, that he was having sexual
identity problems and included a
picture of himself in a dress. There
was no indication whether it was
haute couture. He was not Corporal
Klinger of MASH fame seeking a
Section 8.
This whole mess is an almost per-
fect example of the doctrine of un-
intended consequences. After 9/11,
there was a hue and cry in Congress
and elsewhere for the sharing of
more information, a lack of which
had been cited as partially to blame
for failing to head off the disaster.
But, of course, as is often the case,
there was an extreme reaction and
there suddenly seemed to be no
end to the sharing all the way down
to this kid who could look at all that
classified State Department cable
traffic as well as from the Pentagon.
If the Army or the Justice Depart-
ment or whoever is to settle on who
is to blame for this frequently em-
barrassing and potentially damag-
ing sea of information released into
the online atmosphere, it seems
to me the list of candidates should
include Manning's superiors. Some
things slip through the cracks, it is


true, but just how blatant can one
be considering the photographic
evidence submitted by Manning
himself? Even his fellow unit mem-
bers knew something was amiss.
Whatever damage was done by
this irresponsibility, a major con-
tributor has to be we of the press
who leapt at the chance of receiv-
ing the documents fromWildLeaks.
There were several major outlets
chosen byAssange and his cohorts,
As a defender of openness in public
affairs most of my life and who de-
plores the continued classification
of historic documents well beyond
what should be accepted, that is
not easy to say.
But this case is not the Pentagon
Papers but about sending out cur-
rent state-classified documents
during war time, no matter how
Manning tries to cloak his actions
in nobility.
It has not been determined
whether there is enough evidence
to make the 22 counts, includ-
ing treason, stick in a military
trial. I think there probably is. It is
anyone's guess whether the Army
might decide that it is in its best
interest to go along with a deal
trading Manning a lesser sentence
for an opportunity to help bring
back Assange from overseas. Ap-
parently Assange's lawyers fear that
might occur. They were present at
the hearings in Fort Meade, Md.
It would not be easy to sympa-
thize with Manning should he be
tried and found guilty. But one has
to believe he was crying out for
some help and was ignored.

Letters to the Editor


Teachers deserve
job securiy

Thanks to S.B. 736, any teacher
hired after 1 July, 2011 will never
be more than an annual employee.
Annual contract teachers will start
a new school year not knowing if
they will have a job at end of the
school year.
Regardless of the quality of their
job performance or the perfor-
mance of their students, an annual
contract teacher can have their job
taken for no specific reason. The
school district is not even required
to give a reason as to why the
teacher is being fired.
On Nov. 29, Rep. Marti Coley met
with the Jackson County Teachers
Association to discuss issues and
concerns regarding education.
During our meeting, Rep. Coley was
quoted as saying when a teacher
is fired, "The teacher still could go
through an appeal process if they


felt their dismissal was
unwarranted."
As we stated in our meeting with
Rep. Coley, this is simply not true.
In Jackson County, many high per-
forming educators with excellent
evaluations and test scores have
been fired for arbitrary and capri-
cious reasons. There is absolutely
no appeal process to follow. Over
the course of the last few years,
the education budget has suffered
drastic and unnecessary budget
cuts. Due to this chronic under-
funding of education by our Leg-
islature, another threat to annual
contract teachers raises its head. A
teacher with 10 years' experience is
paid $5,736.00 more per year than
a first year teacher. What measures
are in place to ensure an experi-
enced teacher's livelihood isn't at
risk simply because a new, inexpe-
rienced teacher is cheaper to hire?
Rep. Coley also said, "the change
made teachers subject to what ev-
ery profession had." Name me one


other profession that does not have
an expectation to job security. If I
am doing my job and doing it well,
I should be able to continue in that
.position, safe from the whims and
political notions of some manage-
ment decision.
Teaching is truly a calling. A
person has to commit to many
years of schooling and spending
thousands of dollars to simply
qualify to be a teacher. After obtain-
ing a degree, many tests must be
passed in order to earn a teaching
certificate (at an additional cost of
$200 per certification exam).
Many hours of in-service classes
must be taken to renew a teaching
certificate. Many teachers spend
countless unpaid hours preparing
for the next block of instruction for
their students. This level of
commitment deserves, at the very
least, to be recognized with some
form of job security.

County commission plans to


purchase building for $925,000


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcflordan.com

Jackson County Com-
missioners voted Tuesday
to buy the building it cur-
rently rents to house the
State Attorney's office and
the E-911 business office.
The county rents the
upstairs, which has 6,063
square feet, and the state
probation office rents the
downstairs portion, with
4,587 square feet in that
portion.
Buying the structure
from Glass Properties
LLC will cost the county
$925,000. The local gov-
ernment plans to make a
large down payment and
finance a little more than
half the cost with a 10.5-
year loan. The down pay-
ment will come from a re-
serve fund the county had
set aside for the eventual
construction of a new ad-
ministration building. The
county expects to reim-
burse that fund over time.
As the new owner of
the building, the county


would expect to realize
$5,610 a month in revenue
from probation as a rent-
er, or $67,324 a year. That's
more than the county will
have to pay each month
on the loan it plans to take
out, if projected figures
hold up.
The county has until
now paid Glass Properties
$2,800 a month to rent its
upstairs space and, as part
of its rental agreement,
paid an additional flat rate
of $4,265 annually to cover
a portion of the taxes for
the owner. The county's
annual payment came to
$37,865 a year in rent and
the tax contribution. The
bank loan should come
to about $60,000 a year,
about $7,000 less than
the county would receive
from probation under the
five year lease that it just
renewed with the current
owner.
Jackson County Admin-
istrator Ted Lakey, in his
presentation to the board
about the potential pur-
chase, pointed out that


the county could now use
the rent it has been paying
to Glass for other purpos-
es, since probation's rent
would more than cover
the amount of the loan.
Commissioners had
considered three pur-
chase options; they could
have borrowed the entire
amount or paid $175,000
down and financed the
rest, but went with a third
option that will cost them
less in interest. Based
on figures provided by a
consultant who projects
that the board could get
a 10-year loan at 2.5 per-
cent interest, the board
will pay down $425,000,
borrow $500,000, and pay
that amount off at $59,904
a year for 10 years. That
payment would be broken
into monthly amounts of
$4,992.
Although the consultant
has advised the board that
the county can get a loan
for 2.5 percent interest,
commissioners directed
Lakey to check around
with local banks to see if


they can offer a better or
equal deal. The county did
not say which institution
the consultant had rec-
ommended, or whether
he had actually come to
concrete terms with one.
The building, construct-
ed in 1986, was originally
a bank. Located at 2863
Green Street, it has an es-
timated 30 years of life left
in it, Lakey told the board,
and comes with 53 park-
ing spaces. He also told
the board that the asking
price came in under the
appraised value.
.. The county has recent-
ly made other building
purchases in order to get
away from renting struc-
tures. The county bought
the building on Jefferson
Street where the Supervi-
sor of Elections office is
situated, and the building
next door to the county
administration building.
The county finance de-
partment was moved in
there, and the rest of the
space in that structure is
used for storage.

33,000 giant African
land snails caught
MIAMI Florida agri-
culture officials say they've
captured more than 33,000
giant African land snails
since the invasive spe-
cies was discovered in
Miami-Dade County in
September.
Officials said Tuesday
that most were collected


after homeowners called
the Florida Department
of Agriculture Division of
Plant Industry's hotline.
The land snail eats dif-
ferent types of plants. It
also can carry a parasite
that can lead to meningitis
in humans. Some 17,000
snails were collected over
a nine-year eradication
program in the 1960s.

Obama, Biden welcome home commander in Iraq


The Associated Press

JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md.
- Blending solemn tradition
with joyous reunion, the top com-
mander of U.S. forces in Iraq re-
turned home to U.S. soil Tuesday,
greeted by his wife and his presi-
dent in an understated ceremony
to mark the end of the nine-year
conflict.
President Barack Obama met
Gen. Lloyd Austin and his top
command staff with a smart sa-
lute at this military post in subur-
ban Washington. Austin made his
homecoming with his staff bear-
ing the U.S. Forces-Iraq flag, the
symbolic conclusion to the war.
Obama was accompanied by
Vice President Joe Biden. Though
neither offered formal remarks,
both greeted the troops and their
families.
Those families, however, had
to await the ritual return of the
flag before embracing their loved
ones. Under Army custom the
flag will be retired and either

"Today we bring home the col-
ors to United States soil, at the
same time we embrace many of
our own back into the fold just-
in time for the holidays," Gen.
Martin Dempsey, the chairman of


the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the
returning men and women. "Wel-
come home."
The last U.S. troops withdrew
from Iraq on Sunday. In a vis-
ible reminder of the conflict,
Dempsey, Austin and the troops


who accompanied him wore their
combat uniforms.
With Obama, an early opponent
of the war, sitting nearby, Austin
praised the war's outcome.
"What our troops achieved in
Iraq over the course of nearly
nine years is truly remarkable," he
said. "Together with our coalition
partners and core of dedicated
civilians, they removed a brutal
dictator and gave the Iraqi people
their freedom."
Later, at the White House,
Obama referred to the ceremony
while calling for House Republi-
cans to accept a Senate bipartisan
compromise to extend a payroll
tax cut for two months.
"These Americans and all
Americans, who served are the
embodiment of courage, and self-
lessness and patriotism," Obama
said during a surprise appear-

and they do their job. And they
do it for something bigger than
themselves."


Stocks soar on Europe hopes, strong housing starts


The Associated Press

NEWYORK Stocks are
surging following encour-
aging signs out of Europe
and a jump in apartment
building in the U.S. The
Dow Jones industrial aver-
age jumped more than 300
points. If the gains hold,
it will be the best day for
stocks this month.
German business and
consumer confidence rose
unexpectedly in Decem-
ber, and the Spanish gov-
ernment pulled off a suc-
cessful debt auction. Both
helped to ease. worries
about Europe's debt crisis.
The dollar fell against the
euro and U.S. government
bond prices dropped as
traders shifted money out
of the safest assets.
Borrowing costs for
the Spanish government
plunged at an auction of
short-term debt, a sign
that investors are becom-
ing more confident in the
country's ability to pay it
back. .
"Spain has plenty of
problems, large debts
and budget deficits," said
Sam Stovall, chief equity
strategist at S&P Capital
IQ. "So when we see debt


auctions go much bet-
ter than expected it's very
encouraging."
Spain raised 5.6 billion
($7.3 billion), much more
than its goal of 4.5 billion.
Investors demanded an
interest rate of only 1.74
percent to lend to the gov-
ernment for three months,
a steep fall from the 5.1
percent at an auction in
November.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average jumped 327
points, or 2.8 percent,
to 12,093 with an hour
of trading left. It fell 100
points the day before.
The gains held on Tues-
day afternoon even after
the U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives rejected a
plan to extend a cut to the
amount withdrawn from
employee's paychecks for
Social Security. Unemploy-
ment benefits for 2 million
people are also at risk.
A Federal Reserve pro-
posal for stricter rules on
larger banks didn't knock
down JPMorgan Chase,
Citigroup and other big
bank stocks. JPMorgan
Chase & Co. and Citigroup
remained up by 5 percent
Tuesday afternoon.
Analysts cautioned that


otherbigrallies in the stock
market have been quick
to fade as traders seize
the chance to sell stocks
and lock in the gain. "If
you're selling into rallies,
it means people want out.
said Quincy Krosby, Pru-
dential Financial's market
strategist. "They don't be-
lieve it's sustainable."
Take the Dow's 490-
point jump Nov. 30 after
major central banks made
a coordinated move to
prop up European lend-
ers by freeing up cash. The
one-day rally brought the
Dow to 12,045, but that
gain had evaporated by
last week.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index gained 35
points, or 2.9 percent, to
1,240. Only 4 stocks in the
index fell.
The Nasdaq composite
index rose 78, or 3 per-
cent, to 2,601.
Europe's major stock
markets also climbed.
Germany's DAX soared 3.1
percent. France's CAC-40
jumped 2.7 percent.


The Commerce Depart-
ment said builders broke
ground on 685,000 new
homes last month, a 9.3
percent jump from Octo-
ber. That's the highest level


since April 2010. Building
permits, a gauge of future
construction, increased
5.7 percent, spurred by
a jump in apartment
permits.

Florida Gators Pee Wee Footbal


Florida coach Will Muschamp listens to Ohio State coach Luke
Fickell take questions during a news conference for the Jan. 2
Gator Bowl in Jacksonville.


White to remain


with Florida in


some capacity


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE Brian
White expects to be at
Florida next season, re-
gardless of what job title
he holds.
White, the team's run-
ning backs coach and in-
terim offensive coordina-
tor, said Tuesday he won't
have any harsh feelings if
coach Will Muschamp de-
cides to hire someone else
to replace Charlie Weis.
Weis left to take the head
coaching job at Kansas
earlier this month, and
Muschamp tabbed White
to call plays against Ohio
State in the Gator Bowl on
Jan. 2.
So the next two
weeks and the
bowl game are
his audition.
"Every day is
an audition for 41
the job that you
have," White said,
speaking for the first time
since the staff changes. "I
learned a long time ago:
Do a great job with the job
that you have. Don't worry
about anything but, do-
ing the best job you can
' do with the resources you
have and good things will
happen. That's the ap-
proach that I take every
day to this job."
White has kept Flori-
da's offense, which ranks
102nd in total yards,
mostly the same. That cer-
tainly won't please Florida
fans who have been clam-
oring for change since the
Gators (6-6) managed 184
yards against Florida State
in their home finale.
"It's pretty much status
quo," White said. "This is
what our players know.
This is what we've coached
all year. We can't all of the
sudden go and do some-


thing out of the box in a
couple weeks. That would
be foolish. It's an excellent
offense. It's had proven
success. Our players un-
derstand it. We're a work in
progress, and we're gonna
continue to get better
throughout this prepara-
tion and play well on Jan.
2 against Ohio State."
Muschamp interviewed
Jacksonville University
head coach Kerwin Bell
for the offensive coordina-
tor position last week, but
has said repeatedly that
White will be considered
for the job.
White might even be
called the leading candi-
date since Muschamp
made it clear
Monday that
he is looking
for some of-
fensive con-
tinuity with
the new hire.
"We're not go-
ing to come in here and
change what we're doing,"
Muschamp said. "I don't
think that it's smart to hire
a guy and have 40 guys
learn as opposed to one
guy learning. Obviously,
will he tweak some things?
Certainly. Will he change
some things? Maybe.
We're not going just take a
playbook, throw it out the
window and bring another
one in.
"We've got a young
football team and I think
continuity is the most
important thing at this
point with our football
team. That's really the pa-
rameters I'm looking for
right now. You continue
to talk to people and visit
and talk to people face to
face and find out if they
are a fit. And you exhaust
all measures to make sure
you find the right guy."


Raiders, Titans for all the marbles


BY SHELIA MADER
Flor dan Correspondent
The Pee Wee League champion-
ship will be decided tonight at 5:30
when the once-beaten Raiders
take on the once-beaten Titans.
Both have won one of their pre-
vious matchups, and tonight will
be the deciding factor for all the
marbles.
On December 13th, the Raiders
kept their hopes alive for a cham-
pionship as they defeated the Jag-
uars 26-12. The Raiders took the
opening drive and in just three
plays found the end zone. Quar-
terback Blake Donaldson threw to
Max Olds who in turn completed a
pass to Caleb Torbett for a 58-yard
touchdown.
The Jaguars answered with a
touchdown run by Jashon Rhynes
to tie it at six. Minutes later Rhynes


intercepted and returned the ball
for a touchdown to put the Jaguars
up 12-6. The Raiders answered
with a touchdown and conversion
with just 12 seconds left on the
clock before the half. Isaac Smith
went in on a four-yard run. Torbett
made the conversion and the Raid-
ers led 13-12 at the half.
Torbett had the first score of
the second half on a 25-yard run
with Smith in for the conversion.
The Raiders final score came on a
fumble in the end zone recovered
by Elijah Peterson to make it a 26-
12 final.
In Friday night's game, it was a
19-0 win for the Raiders over the
Eagles. The first score came on a
halfback pass on a fourth-and-four
play. Isaac Smith threw to Brady
Donaldson for the score. The con-
version failed but the Raiders were


up 6-0.
Elijah Peterson got the Raiders
in scoring position for a short run
by Torbett for the second score of
the game to give the Raiders a 12-0
half time lead. In the second half,
the offensive line opened up holes
for a pair of long runs by Smith and
Tucker Moody. T. J. Hayes scored
on a 33-yard run, after breaking
several tackles to stay on his feet
and find the end zone. Blak'e Don-
aldson converted to make it a 19-0
game.
Coach Rex Torbett was pleased
with his team's efforts for the
week, "Our team did a great job
this week. They only gave up one
touchdown in two games and
scored 45 points," he said. "I could
list names but I can say everyone
on the team contributed this week,
very proud of all of them."

Gaining experience



Despite loss

Bulldogs keep

improving

BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent
The Marianna High School Bull-
dogs soccer team traveled to Pen-
sacola Friday night to take on the
Crusaders of Pensacola Catho-
lic. Following an early season 8-0
thrashing by the Crusaders, the
Bulldogs held tough defensively
through three quarters, going in the
final 20 minutes down 2-1.0
The lone goal for the Bulldogs
came off the foot of John Metzler
who leads the Bulldogs 'in scor-
ing this season. Metzler, who has
missed two games due to-injury, .. '
leads the Bulldogs with 11 goals
this season. Despite the four goals '
given upby senior goal keeper Mi-
chael Mader, he had 41 saves on 48 -
attempts with three missed shots.
Following the game, Coach Garyn
Waller saw positives in the Bulldogs
loss against the strong Catholic
squad, "It was actually one of the
better games we have played up to
this point. Just a bad break here
and a bad bounce there was the dif- .. '
ference. If we can keep playing like
that, the breaks will find us eventu- .
ally and we will be a tough out for
someone come playoff time." .,
In earlier action, the Lady Bull- .
dogs fell 8-0 to the Lady Crusad-
ers of Catholic. On the night, goal .
keeper Madison Dean had 21 savesr,
on 33 attempts with eight goals
scored and four missed shots. Both
teams were scheduled to be back in .'
action Tuesday night before taking '
off for the holiday break. Results of ..
those games were not available at MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
press time. Marianna's Seth Gilley uses his head during a recent game.

Buckeyes tattoos not so free after all

Ohio State hit hard with NCAA penalties and sanctions, won't appeal


The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohio State
players broke the rules and got to
play in the Sugar Bowl anyway. Jim
Tressel knew about infractions and
let it all happen. Now the Buckeyes
and new coach Urban Meyer will pay
for it next season.
The NCAA hit Ohio State with a
one-year bowl ban and additional
penalties Tuesday for violations that
started with eight players taking a to-
tal -of $14,000 in cash and tattoos in
exchange for jerseys, rings and other
Buckeyes memorabilia.
Tressel was tipped to the violations
in April 2010 but didn't tell anyone
- even after the athletes got caught
last December but were allowed to
play in the Sugar Bowl against Arkan-
sas if they served suspensions to start
the 2011 season. Among those in the
group: starting quarterback Terrelle
Pryor and leading rusher Daniel
"Boom" Herron.
Tressel's silence damaged Ohio


State in the eyes of the NCAA and
the result is that the Buckeyes, with
a plum 2012 schedule and perhaps
college football's best coach in Mey-
er, will watch next year's bowl games
on TV.
"Had we known what (Tressel)
knew, we would not have played
those young men in that bowl game,"
said an emotional Gene Smith, Ohio
State's athletic director.
Forced out in May and now on the
staff of the Indianapolis Colts, Tressel
was called out by the NCAA for un-
ethical conduct and will have a hard
time coaching at the college level
again.
"He's not going to appeal. He ac-
cepts the committee's decision.
That's all there is to say," said Gene
March, an attorney for Tressel.
The university had previously of-
fered to vacate the 2010 season, re-
turn bowl money, go on two years of
NCAA probation and use five fewer
football scholarships over the next
three years.


Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle
Pryor was one of five players suspended
for receiving improper benefits. He
promptly left school and now holds a
clipboard for the Oakland Raiders.


Johnson new coach

at Southern Miss


The Associated Press

HATTIESBURG, Miss.
- Ellis Johnson is taking
over the Southern Miss
football program and the
veteran defensive coordi-
nator has big goals for the
Golden Eagles: Lead them
to a BCS game.
The 59-year-old John-
son was introduced Tues-
day during a press confer-
ence on campus. He has
spent the past four years
as defensive coordinator
at South Carolina, and has
substantial ties in Missis-
sippi, working as defen-
sive coordinator at Missis-
sippi State and Southern
Miss.
TheWinnsboro, S.C., na-
tive takes over a program
that has had 18 straight
winning seasons and been


to 10 straight bowl games,
but has not made it to a
Bowl Championship Se-
ries game like Boise State
and TCU, two non-BCS
conference schools that
have managed to crash
the elite college football
club.
"As I take over this pro-
gram, I'm looking for
something that's never
been done before," John-
son said. "Frankly, there's
very little left. It's in-
timidating, but it's also
challenging."
Johnson replaces Larry
Fedora, who is leaving
Southern Miss after four
seasons to take the North
Carolina job. The Golden
Eagles just completed
their first 10-win season
since 1988 and won the-
Conference USA title. I

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
LSU head coach Les Miles was selected as The Associated
Press college football coach of the year on Tuesday.

LST's Miles named

AP coach of the year


The Associated Press
BATON ROUGE, La. -
LSU's 2011 season will be
remembered for challeng-
ing Les Miles' crisis-man-
agement skills over and
over again.
It could also go down as
the greatest season in the
history of a program that
has been around since
1893.
Nowwithin one more vic-
tory of an unbeaten season
and a BCS national title,
Miles has been voted The
Associated Press Coach of
theYear.
Thirty of 56 votes cast
went to Miles. Bill Snyder
of Kansas State was sec-
ond with 16, Mike Gundy
of Oklahoma State had six,
Brady Hoke of Michigan
got three and Lane Kiffin
of Southern California had
one.
As Miles reflected on the
various trials he dealt with
this season in an interview
with the AP this week, he
spoke in a hushed tone
and recounted a talk he
had long ago with his fa-
ther in the kitchen of his


childhood home in Elyria,
Ohio.
When Miles was around
12 years old, he was wor-
ried about his dad, Hope
"Bubba" Miles, who'd been
passed over for a promo-
tion and subsequently
laid off, all while dealing
with the death of his own
father.
"We'll be fine," the LSU
coach recalled his father
telling him. "It's the reac-
tion to the difficult times;
it's always those days when
something does not come
your way and you have
to make the best move -
that's what's going to make
your life rich."
However LSU's season
ends in the BCS title game
against No. 2 Alabama on
Jan. 9 in the Superdome, it
will go down as one of the
more memorable chapters
in the history of Louisiana's
most storied college foot-
ball program. The events
that could have derailed
the 2011 campaign were
numerous and diverse,
yet the Tigers dominated
just about every team they
faced.

Abby Wambach wins US



Female Athlete of the Year


The Associated Press
CHICAGO With the
final seconds ticking
down and the Americans
on the verge of their ear-
liest exit ever from the
Women's World Cup,
AbbyWambach kept wav-
ing her index finger at her
teammates.
One chance, she
screamed, all they needed
was one chance.
When it came in the
form of a left-footed cross
from Megan Rapinoe,
Wambach pounced. With
one vicious whip of her
head, she changed the
course of this year's World
Cup and sparked a frenzy
rarely seen for women's
sports in the United
States.
Wambach's perfor-
mance at the World Cup
made her the clear choice
for the 2011 Female Ath-
lete of the Year in the
United States, selected


Abby Wambach (right) was voted the 2011 Female Athlete
of the Year.


by members of The As-
sociated Press. The U.S.
forward received 65 of
the 214 votes cast, while
teammate Hope Solo (38)
was a distant second and
basketball player Maya
Moore (35) was third.
Wambach is the first
individual football player
- man or woman to


win one of the AP's an-
nual sports awards,
which began in 1931.
The U.S. women's team
won in 1999, when their
World Cup triumph at the
Rose Bowl transfixed the
nation.
"We, as a team, did
something that no team
since Mia Hamm was able


to do," Wambach told the
AP. "Even the team that
won the (Olympic) gold
medal in 2008 wasn't able
to inspire and get people
excited about women's
soccer. It goes to show
you the impact drama
can bring."
Wambach's four goals
in Germany give her 13 in
three Wbrld Cup appear-
ances. That's the most
by an American, topping
Michelle Akers by one,
and puts her third on the
all-time World Cup scor-
ing list behind Brazil for-
ward Marta and Germany
striker Birgit Prinz. The
31-year-old American
ranks third on the U.S. ca-
reer scoring list with 125
goals, trailing only Mia
Hamm (158) and Kristine
Lilly (130).
"When she's on top of
her game," United States
coach Pia Sundhage said,
"she's one of the best in
the world."

Tebow balances football



with philanthropic work


The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -
There's a quarterback Tim
Tebow can't wait to meet
while in Buffalo for a piv-
otal late-season game. A
special guest showing up
at his request.
And no, it's not Bills great
Jim Kelly.
Tebow is bringing in Ja-
cob Rainey, a highly touted
prep player from a private
school in Virginia who had
part of his right leg ampu-
tated after suffering a se-
vere knee injury during a
fall scrimmage.
Tebow is looking for-
ward to chatting with
Rainey before and again
after the Denver Broncos'
game against the Bills on
Saturday.
For as dedicated asTebow
is about improving on the
field, he's just as devoted to
his engagements off it.
That's why losses really
don't linger. He's already
turned the page after fall-
ing 41-23 to. Tom Brady
and. the New England
Patriots on Sunday.
"I'll move on and con-
tinue to be positive and
everything," Tebow said
Tuesday.
As if he knows any other
way.
Tebow has become the
center of the football uni-
verse since guiding the
Broncos (8-6) from the
brink of playoff extinction
back into contention. His
team leads the AFCWest by
a game over Oakland and
San Diego after rebound-
ing from a 1-4 start under
Kyle Orton. The Broncos


are in prime position to
make the playoffs for the
first time since the 2005
season.
A popular figure these
days, Tebow's name and
image have been popping
up all over as he's appeared
on the cover of Sports Illus-
trated, been mentioned at
the Republican debate in
Iowa and spoofed during a
"Saturday Night Live" skit
in which the show play-
fully mocks his faith.
Although Tebow hasn't
seen the clip yet, his team-
mates have watched it.
"I've heard some players
have been laughing about
it a little bit," Tebow said,
grinning.
Tebow doesn't mind all
the attention. It gives him
a platform for his causes,
such as the Tim .Tebow
Foundation's "Wish 15"
program. On Sunday, he
brought in Kelly Faughnan,
who's dealing with tumors
and seizures.
"It gives her an oppor-
tunity to have a good time
and gives her a little hope
and puts a smile on her
face," Tebow said. "Ulti-
mately, that's what's im-
portant. As hard as it is to
say it, that's more impor-
tant than even winning or,
losing the game."
With every passing game,
Tebow steadily improves in
the passing department.
Sure, his mechanics are
still rough and his style un-
orthodox. But he's making
far better reads and deci-
sions than he was several
weeks ago.
"He's not afraid, no
stranger to hard work,"


coach John Fox said. "He
works as hard as any player
I've ever coached."
Tebow even received
quite a backing from the
boss himself, John Elway,
who gave his strongest in-
dication yet in an interview
with The Associated Press
that he believes Tebow can
transform from a scram-
bling quarterback into a
pocket passer.
That meant a lot to the
young quarterback.
"Mr. Elway is obviously
one of the best to ever play
the game. To get any com-
pliment from him is ex-
tremely nice," said Tebow,
who is 5-0 on the road
since taking over the start-
ing job. "He's been around
this game a long tiine.
That's nice to hear."
Bills coach Chan Gailey
applauds Denver's bold
choice of switching to the
unconventional option of-
fense to better fit Tebow's
unique skill set. Gailey
always believed that ap-
proach could be success-
ful for a short window
anyway.
"I thought the first team
that had guts enough to
try it, it was going to-work
for about two years," Gai-
ley said. "Then, defen-
sive coaches in the NFL
would catch up to it a little
bit. Then, it would be a
struggle."
Tebow has proficiently
run this offense, just like
he did at Florida, where he
won the Heisman and two
national titles. He's rushed
for 610 yards this season,
the most by a Denver
quarterback.

Denver quarterback Tim Tebow, prays before a game against New England last Sunday. This
pre-eame ritual has become known around the world as'Tebowing.

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I usually do the cooking in
the house, but occasionally my husband
likes to surprise me by preparing a meal.
I'm glad he wants to relieve me of the
kitchen duties, but he has a bad habit of
wrecking my cookware. Recently, I came
home from work, and he was beaming
from having made a big dinner. But then
I saw that he served the meal in plastic
bowls that he had placed in the oven to
keep warm. He permanently damaged
them, and I jumped on him for ruining
the bowls. He got upset because he was
expecting praise for making dinner.
I know I should not have become upset
over some plastic bowls, but he does this
all the time. He's ruined nonstick cook-
ware by scratching it with metal utensils,
burned pans by heating them when they
were empty, microwaved non-micro-
waveable containers and on and on.
Please tell me how to overlook the fact
that we have to replace so many kitchen
items and just be happy that he cooks. I
don't want him to stop. I just want him to
use some common sense.
CALIFORNIA


Bridge
In bridge, since we lose so much, we get great
pleasure from success. However, if we find suc-
cess in defense today, we might not seek it in
vain in declarer play tomorrow.
In today's deal, West leads the heart 10 against
four spades. When he holds the trick, he plays
his second heart. East wins with his jack, cash- W
es the king and continues with his ace. What 4
should South do now? When North raised to V
two spades, he promised only three-card sup- *
port. So South, despite his unappealing heart *
holding, rebid three no-trump. However,
North, since he did have four spades, correctly
went for the major-suit game.
South starts with eight top tricks: four spades,
three diamonds and one club. So he needs two
ruffs in one hand or the other. And the defense
has pushed him into trumping in his own
hand, which conveniently keeps dummy's high
trumps to remove the four unsportingly held
by East.
South ruffs high at trick four. He draws one
round of trumps using a winner in the dummy.
Then he plays a diamond to his king, leads his
other diamond to dummy's queen, and ruffs
the diamond seven with his other high spade.
At last he can draw trumps and claim.


Dear California: You need to explain
these things to your husband when you
aren't angry. He doesn't know any better
because no one has taken the time to
teach him properly. Try cooking together,
showing him by example how to create
a dish in the kitchen without ruining ev-
erything. Treat his gaffes with affection,
and make sure to appreciate his handi-
work when he's finished. If this doesn't
help, keep in mind that it is much easier
to replace pots and pans than a loving
husband who cooks for you.

Dear Annie: I wrote the letter signed
'Alone in Omaha," telling you that I was
having major brain surgery and no one
would be in the hospital with me. Thank
you for your advice to call my family and
tell them. I did that. I let them know it
would be good to have someone here,
and they came through. My father is
coming, my sister is driving 10 hours
from Oklahoma and my brother will be
here, too. I also joined an epilepsy sup-
port group and the people are all kind.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. walks into court for his misdemeanor
harassment case at the Clark County Regional Justice
Center.


Mayweather Jr.


accepts plea deal


The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS, Nev. Box-
er Floyd Mayweather Jr.
plans to plead guilty to
reduced misdemeanor
charges in a plea deal re-
solving felony allegations
that he battered his ex-
girlfriend, court officials
said Tuesday.
Mayweather, 34, will face
$3,000 in fines and could
be sentenced to between
two days and 18 months
in the Clark County jail
after pleading Wednesday
to one count of battery
domestic violence and
two harassment charges,
said Tess Driver, an aide
to Clark County District
Attorney David Roger. The
Las Vegas Review-Journal
first reported the plea deal
Tuesday.
It also includes an agree-
ment for Mayweather
to plead no contest next
week to misdemeanor
battery and pay a $1,000
fine for poking a 21-year-
old homeowner associa-
tion security guard in the
face during a November
2010 argument about
parking tickets on vehicles
outside the boxer's home


in an exclusive, suburban
LasVegas community.
Roger and Mayweather's
lawyers did not immedi-
ately respond to messag-
es from The Associated
Press.
Mayweather had been
facing an evidence hear-
ing Wednesday and a de-
cision by Las Vegas Justice
of the Peace Melissa Sara-
gosa whether to send him
to trial on felony grand
larceny, coercion and rob-
bery charges, and misde-
meanor domestic battery
and harassment counts
involving ex-girlfriend
Josie Harris.
He could have faced 34
years in state prison if he
was convicted.
The felony case
stemmed from accusa-
tions that Mayweather
hit and threatened his
ex-girlfriend, stole her cell
phone and threatened
two of their children, then
ages 10 and 9, during a
September 2010 argu-
ment about the woman
dating another man.
Mayweather is unde-
feated in the boxing ring,
with a record of 42-0 with
26 knockouts.


Major League Baseball

Yu may have a reason to watch Texas

Rangers offer record bid for right to negotiate with Japanese pitcher Darvish


--


NEW ORK After los-
ing a pair of aces in the last
two years, the Texas Rang-
ers are going global to land
a new one.
Winner of consecutive
AL pennants, Texas also
won the Yu Darvish sweep-
stakes Monday night with
a record bid of 551.7 mil-
lion. Now, the Rangers
get 30 days to negotiate a
contract with Darvish that
would put Japan's best
pitcher at the top of their
rotation.
"Obviously, it's a very ex-
citing night for our orga-
nization, our fans and our
community," general man-
ager Jon Daniels said on a
conference call.
Major League Base-
ball announced that the
Hokkaido Nippon Ham
Fighters of Japan's Pacific
League accepted the high-
est bid for Darvish. That
sealed offer was submitted
under the posting system
by the Rangers.
"Our ownership went
the extra mile on this one,"


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
Nippon Ham Fighters pitcher Yu Darvish reacts at a press
conference in Sapporo, Japan, after a new contract signing that
made him the highest-paid player in Japanese professional
baseball.


Daniels said, declining to
reveal specifics.
A person familiar with
the details said the win-
ning bid by Texas was $51.7
million more than the
$51.1 million posting fee
the Boston Red Sox paid
for Daisuke Matsuzaka in
2006. The person spoke
on condition of anonymity


because the figure was not
made public.
Yahoo Sports and The
New York Times reported
the amount first.
Darvish is considered the
best pitcher in the Japanese
professional leagues and
several of baseball's biggest
spenders were thought to
be interested in him.


DPtqu Cann


If the Rangers can close
the deal, the _'---year-old
right-hander would join
a rotation that already in-
cludes rite starters: Colby
Lewis, Derek Holland, Matt
Harrison, Alexi Ogando and
former closer Neftali Feliz,
moved out of the bullpen
when the club signed free-
agent reliever Joe Nathan
this offseason.
"If we're able to sign him
(Darvish), then we'll have a
very good problem on our
hands," Daniels said.
It's a dynamic endeavor
for the Rangers, buoyed by
a lucrative television con-
tract and back-to-back AL
championships under a
new ownership group led
by Hall of Fame pitcher
Nolan Ryan.
Despite a serious effort,
the Rangers were unable
to re-sign star pitcher Cliff
Lee following the 2010 sea-
son. They made it back to
the World Series anyway
and were within one strike
of winning it all twice
- before the St. Louis Car-
dinals rallied to take the
trophy.
