Newt Gingrich won Jackson Coun-

who waved signs on Jefferson and
Lafayette Streets Tuesday afternoon.
Florida's results as a whole had
Mitt Romney trumping Gingrich,
however.
"We had a good turnout," said Clint
Pate, the Chairman of the Republi-
can Party in Jackson County. "We're
very pleased with the turnout. The


people of Jackson County spoke on
who they think should face Obama
in November."
The results are technically unof-
ficial for several reasons. Supervisor
of Elections Sylvia Stephens will go
through all the ballot tapes today.
Several provisional ballots were cast,
which need the canvassing board's
approval. Any overseas absentee
ballots that arrive in the next 10 days
will also be counted. On Feb. 10,

144TH TRANSPORTATION COMPANY


Local soldier takes command

Marianna graduate is

new commander of

National Guard unit

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER ,-
dbuckhalter@jcfloric jr, in

A home-grown solider will soon take V'
command of the Florida A- m\ Na io n-
al Guard's 144th Transportation Com-
pany. A 1991 graduate of Nlarianna
High School, Lt. Bobby Datis will be
officially installed to office in a March
3 ceremony at the National Guard Ar-
mory in Marianna.
Davis applied for the position and
was selected for the command by bat-
talion Commander Kevin Creech. He
was notified of his appoinrnment lastr
Thursday.
Davis has been inthe National Guard,
with the 144th, since he was 221 ears of
age. In June, he'll celebrate his 19th year
in the service. During that time, he has
previously served as a recruiter and for

word of the appointment came.
As Commander, he will be in charge
of the Guard's monthly training week-
ends, the Company's annual' summer
camp exercises, and oversee the Com- J
pany's overall operations. He would ..
also deploy with the soldiers if they
were sent overseas.
He will not be at the armory on a
daily basis, however; the day-to-day
staff will remain the same, with Sgt. 1st
Class Stacey Thomas continuing as the
daily officer in charge for Davis.
The new commander said he will
continue working.for Rivertown Com-
munity Church, as pastor of Family
Ministries there. He's been on the Ri-

fore that was a pastor on staff at First

City of Marianna, FPU suit continues


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

The lawsuit between the
City of Marianna and Florida
Public Utilities continues to
move forward, with deposi-
tions from both sides being
taken.
City manager Jim Dean said
a summary judgment hearing
with Judge John L. Fishel II is
scheduled on April 3.
A total of $228,528.27 has.

been spent so far from the
city's utility fund on this law-
suit. Of this sum, $199,213.57
has been spent on legal aid,
$6,189.70 on consulting ser-


vices from WHH Enterprises
and $23,125.00 on consulting
services from GA.
Marianna filed a lawsuit
against FPU in March 2011.
The city's complaint states
that the utility provider failed
to uphold three specific obli-
gations outlined in a franchise
agreement the two signed in
2009.
According to the complaint,
FPU did not create time of use
and interruptible rates agree-


able to both the city and FPU.
It also did not make these cost
saving rates available by Feb.
17,2011. Finally, the rates were
not available to every custom-
er within the city limits.
"We're taking FPU to court
to enforce our rights under
the contract," Dean said.
Time of use rates are charg-
es that differ depending on
the time of day the electricity

man critically

injured in

bicycle crash
From staff reports
A Marianna man was critically in-
jured Monday when a motorist struck
the bicycle he was riding on a Calhoun
County road.
Mark E Long, 48, was riding on Cal-
houn County Road 167 near Walter
Potts Road when police say a van at-
tempted to pass him.
According to Florida Highway Patrol
reports, as the van moved left in this
maneuver, Long changed course and
traveled from the outside of the lane to
the center.. The right front of the van
struck the back of the bicycle, ejecting
Long onto the shoulder of the road.
Long was taken to Tallahassee Me-
morial Hospital for treatment of his
injuries.
The driver of the van, Rajesh G. Patel,
55, and his passenger, Hansa Patel, also
55, both from Vidalia, Ga., were unin-
jured in the incident.
SThe incident remains under
investigation.


Residents are

told to

beware of

Internet scam
From staff reports
The Jackson County Sheriffs Office is
investigating a new Internet scam.
The scam artists first start a friend-
ship with the victim, who is asked to
help them get funds. The victim re-
ceives a check which he or she deposits
and then sends the money to the scam
artist or a third party. Usually the check
is written out for more than the scam
artist is asking for, so the.victim believes
he or she is making money.
It is only after the transaction that the
victim learned the check is fraudulent.
The funds are taken from the victim's
account.
The offenders are using checks that
identify them as the company Metro-'
politan Exposition Services, Inc., out of
Moonachie, New Jersey. These checks
are copies of real checks stolen from the
company.
The sheriff's office press release asks
residents to never give personal, bank
or credit card information to anyone
who asks it from you.
If you have any information or knowl-
edge concerning this type of crime
where there may be other victims,
please contact 'the Sheriff's Office at
482-9624.

Pension system


reform needed
By The Tampa Tribune

A n arcane state rule prevents cities from con-
trolling local pensions' costs and taxpay-
-Z rs' future obligations. Lawmakers could
remedy the situation with a sensible bill that gets
the state out of the way.
At issue are pension agreements between cities
and police and firefighters' unions. The cities levy
an insurance tax to help pay for their share of the
pensions.
A 1999 law requires that any tax income over
what was received in 1999 must be used for "extra
benefits." The law was intended to bring uni-
formity to state pension benefits, but it became
a prescription for disaster, forcing the cities to
commit to ever-increasing obligations that would
not be sustainable should the economy go south
- which, of course, is what has happened.
But the mandate was typical of lawmakers,
who have routinely made concessions to public
safety unions without regard for the costs to local
governments.
The state Division of Retirement now checks
to ensure local agreements are in compliance.
House Bill 365 sponsored by Reps. Fred Costello
of Flagler County and John Julidn of Miami would
undo that unhealthy arrangement, allowing cities
to reduce benefits.
But it also includes an important safeguard for
public safety workers. Such reductions.can occur
only when the unions agree to the concession.
It makes no sense during these tough, economic
times, when local governments have seen their
revenues plummet, to prevent them from devis-
ing contracts that protect taxpayers and workers
alike by ensuring pension costs are sustainable.
To be sure, public safety workers deserve good
pensions. The jobs are dangerous and physically
and mentally demanding.
We don't object to their pensions being more
generous than most. And not all pensions are in
trouble. Tampa's police pension, for instance, is
in solid shape.
Union representatives worry language in the
legislation could:affect the definition of job-re-
lated infjiri e'aind also adversely affect represen-
tation on pension boards. Such concerns should
be addressed. But local governments need.more
flexibility.
The pension bill may need some fine tuning,
but cities and their unions should be free to
determine what benefits are appropriate and
affordable.

Congress takes time off for charades


BY DALE MCFEATTERS
Scripps Howard News Service


House and Senate members
wasted what little time they
scheduled for themselves
to work in January on a political
charade. It fooled no one in Wash-
ington but may dupe some voters
this fall who had better things
to do than follow congressional
gamesmanship.
On Jan. 18, the House voted 239-
176 along party lines, with Republi-
cans in the majority, to block Presi-
dent Barack Obama from using the
authority Congress had recently
given him to raise the ceiling on the
national debt.
Lawmakers took this seemingly
bold stand with the expectation
that the Senate would kill the
measure or, if by some improb-
able legislative misjudgment the
bill actually passed, the president
would veto it. A profile in courage it
was not.
If through some even more
improbable series of mishaps the
bill had actually become law, the


Republicans would have been
horrified and humiliated and run
for cover. If the country hit the
debt ceiling, it could not borrow
the money to fulfill its obligations
in ways the public surely would
notice: not paying the troops, not
sending out Social Security checks,
and failing to pay Medicare bills.
Still, the pointless vote gave Re-
publican House members an after-
noon to bloviate about the bloated
budget without fear of consequenc-
es. The Senate last Thursday voted
52-44 largely along party lines,
with the Democrats in the majority
- to kill the House plan.
GOP brinksmanship with the
debt ceiling last summer resulted
in the first downgrade in the na-
tional credit rating in U.S. history,
and there were threats of further
downgrades if the lawmakers didn't
quit playing games and get seri-
ous about deficits. That warning
shot left both the markets and the
lawmakers badly rattled.
The result was the Budget Control
Act, which gives Obama the author-
ity to raise the debt ceiling unless


Congress votes to oppose it. The ar-
chitect of this sensible compromise
was the Senate's top Republican,
GOP leader Mitch McConnell.
The act called for $900 billion in
deficit reduction over 10 years by
capping agency budgets. A con-
gressional supercommittee was to
come up with an additional $1.2
trillion in cuts but was unable to
reach an agreement. Failing that,
the budget act called for the $1.2
trillion in cuts to kick in automati-
cally across the board at the start
of fiscal year 2013. Those draco-
nian cuts and their indiscriminate
application will be a real problem.
for Congress. The Pentagon has al-
ready begun lobbying against them.
Political grandstanding holding
votes on bills that are not intended
to pass might be acceptable, ex-
cept that the House was in session
only five days in January and the
Senate, a comparative workhorse,
nine days. In a year when Congress
has given itself ample time off be-
cause of.the elections, the lawmak-
ers really don't have time for this
kind of nonsense.

said he wanted to wait
until the next morning to
leave Florida after a reli-
gious conference. But pas-
tor Jose Carmo Jr. wanted
to be back in time for the
suburban Atlanta church's

and led two vans up Inter-
state 75 toward Georgia.
S A few hours later, Ama-
zopas received a call:
Both vans had crashed
in the highway's fog- and

Romney wins big, routing Gingrich


The Associated Press

TAMPA Mitt Romney routed
Newt Gingrich in the Florida pri-
mary Tuesday night, rebounding
smartly from an earlier defeat and
taking a major step toward the
Republican presidential nomina-
tion. Gingrich vowed to press on
despite the one-sided setback
Romney, talking unity like a
nominee, said he was ready to
take the Republican helm and
"lead this party and our nation."
In remarks to cheering support-
ers, the former Massachusetts
governor unleashed a strong at-
tack on Democratic President
Barack Obama and said the com-
petitive fight for the GOP nomi-
nation "does not divide us, it pre-
pares us" for the fall campaign.
"Mr. President, you were elect-
ed to lead, you chose to follow,
and now it's time to get out of the
way," he declared.
Returns from 98 percent of Flor-
ida's precincts showed Romney
with 46 percent of the vote to 32
percent for Gingrich, the former
House speaker.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum had 13 percent, and
Texas Rep. Ron Paul 7 percent.
Neither mounted a substantial
effort in the state.
For the first time in the cam-
paign, exit polls showed a gender
gap, and it worked to Romney's
advantage.
He was leading Gingrich 52-28
among women voters -and was
winning men by a far smaller
margin of 41-36.
Ominously for the thrice-mar-
ried Gingrich, only about half of
women voters said they had a fa-
vorable view of him as a person,
compared to about eight in 10 for
Romney.
Nor was Romney's victory a nar-
row one. His winning percentage
approached 50 percent and a ma-
jority that would demolish Gin-


grich's oft-stated contention that
the voters who oppose Romney
outnumber those who favor him.
Still, the former speaker said,
"We're going to contest every-
place and we are going to win."
As in Iowa, New Hampshire and
South Carolina, about half of Flor-
ida primary voters said the most
important factor for them was
backing a candidate who could
defeat Obama in November, ac-
cording to exit poll results con-
ducted for The Associated Press
and the television networks.
Not surprisingly, in a state with
an unemployment rate hovering
around 10 percent, about two-
thirds of voters said the economy
was their top issue. Nearly nine
in 10 said they were falling be-
hind or just keeping up. And half
said that home foreclosures have
been a major problem in their
communities.
The, winner-take-all primary
was worth 50 Republican National
Convention delegates, by far the
most of any primary state so far.
That gave Romney a total of 87, to
26 for Gingrich, 14 for Santorum
and four for Paul, with 1,144 re-
quired to clinch the nomination.
But the bigger prize was pre-
cious political momentum in
the race to pick an opponent for
Obama in a nation struggling to
recover from the deepest reces-
sion in decades.
That belonged to Romney when
he captured the New Hampshire
primary three weeks ago, then
swung stunningly to Gingrich
when he countered with a South
Carolina upset 11 days later.
Now it was back with the for-
mer Massachusetts governor, af-
ter a 10-day comeback marked
by'a~ diahge to more aggressive"
tactics, coupled with an efficient
use ofan overwhelming financial
advantage to batter Gingrich in
television commercials.

Studies at the Baptist
College of Florida in
Graceville.
He obtained a masters
degree in religion from
Liberty University in
Lynchburg, Va.
Davis said his command
is a dream 'come true,
made more meaningful


still by the fact of his fam-
ily's military history.
His father, Chuck Da-
vis, was in the Air Force.
His grandfather, the late
Charles W. Davis and his
great-grandfather were
both Marines.
Davis said he joined for
one other reason as well,
one that as a recruiter
he was happy to share
with potential enlistees;
the military paid his way
through school at all three


institutions he attended
after high school.
Davis said he expects, in
his command, to follow the
leadership example set by
the previous commander,
Capt. Jeanette Kingsley..
"It's a huge honor to com-
mand and lead the unit,"
he said. "It has been a goal
of mine since 1995, to be
an officer. This is really a
dream come true, and I
hope to continue.along the
line and the great tone that


(Kingsley) set. We'll con-
tinue to work on our skill
sets, our morale, to make
sure we're trained and pre-
pared for whatever mis-
sions we're called to do."
He said his civilian job
as a minister and his mili-
tary command have some
of the same demands and
goals in common. In his
position with Rivertown,
he is responsible for lead-
ing volunteers. In his new
position with the Guard,


he'll be responsible for
leading men and women
who signed on voluntarily
to serve their country and
.state.
The Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce
announced the Davis ap-
pointment at the organi-
zation's annual banquet
last Friday night. Davis
was accompanied by his
grandmother, Ruth Davis,
at that event.
He said he was proud


to have her by his side to
share the spotlight.
She is expected to attend
his installation ceremony,
as well.
Davis will also have
some other important
supporters to witness that
moment.
Among them will likely
be his wife, Brandy, his
son Zac, and his daughter
Sarea. Zac is a senior at
Marianna High and Sarea
is a sophomore there.

is used. Interruptible rates are
charges for service that can be
limited depending on the utility.
In December 2010, FPU sub-
mitted a rate petition with the
Florida Public Service Com-
mission to create time of use
and interruptible service rate
schedules.
According to the complaint,


the rates in this petition were
not mutually agreeable because
they depended on FPU extend-
ing its contract with Gulf Power.
According to the complaint, the
rates paid by FPU to Gulf Power
are one of the highest in the
state.
The complaint states that
FPU's Marianna residential cus-
tomers typically have bills that
are almost $30 per month or
24 percent higher than those of
Gulf Power's customers and $20
per month or 15 percent higher


than FPU's Northeast Division.
Also, the time of use and inter-
ruptible rates would be avail-
able only to a certain number of
customers. The complaint states
that the FPU's rate petition had
time of use and interruptible
rates available to about 940 resi-
dential customers, or 10 percent
of the 10,100 customers in FPU's
Northwest Division.
FPU Northwest Division's rates
have fallen since the lawsuit.
Currently, a Marianna resident
pays about $135.80 for 1000 kilo-


watt hours. In contrast, a FPU
Northeast Division customer
pays $129.07 and a Gulf Power
residential customer pays about
$125.80 for 1000 kilowatt hours.
According to Buddy Shelley,
the general manager for the
Northwest Division, the time
of use and interruptible service
rates are currently available to
all customers.
About six customers current-
ly take part in the cost saving
measures.
The franchise agreement states


that the city can buy FPU's prop-
erty within the city limits if the
time of use and interruptible
rates are not mutually agreed
upon and available to all cus-
tomers within the City of Mari-
anna by Feb. 17. The complaint
asks the court to recognize the
city has this right.
Dean said the city would look
into that option further if it won
the suit.
"You don't buy anything un-
less you do your due diligence,"
Dean said.

Lady Tigers look for turnaround in 2012


MARK SKINNNER/FLORIDIAN
Erin Rosa bunts during a Graceville softball practice Tuesday.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridian.com

The 2011 season was a tough
one for the Graceville Lady Ti-
gers, who had high expectations
going in but suffered through an
0-7 start to the year that ended
with a 7-18 record and an 18-
3 district tournament loss to
South Walton.
New coach Phillip Haynes will
try to engineer a turnaround this
season for a LadyTigers program
that hasn't been in the playoffs
since 2009 and hasn't had a win-
ning record since 2007.
To do that, he'll have to replace
a quartet of valuable seniors in


Jessica McClendon and captains
Kelly Leuenberger, Brittany
Flournoy, and Andi Pierce, and
find leadership on a team with
just one senior.
"We're young, but there is tal-
ent out there," Haynes said.
"We're really excited about the
season. It's a younger team, but
hopefully the experience they
got the last couple of years will
pay off."
The Lady Tigers are still wait-
ing on some of their players to

The hosts needed little time to estab-

17 points of the game and taking a 27-

could make their second basket.

It was White that sparked the Lady

White scored again to start the sec-

Deunna Gonzalez with another bucket
to make it a 42-15 edge.

second half, including a long 3-pointer
at the final buzzer of the third quarter
to give Cottondale a 55-16 advantage.
"I thought we set the tone at the
start," Lady Hornets coach Shan Pit-
nman said after the game.
"'We had a great intensity level,
which we lacked a little in the second
half. But we wanted to set the tone ear-

Super Bowl XLVI




Giants vs. Patriots, the sequel


The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS That was then.
This is now.
That's what players on the Giants and
Patriots are saying about their previous
Super Bowl meeting, New York's 17-14
stunner over the then-unbeaten Patriots
four years ago.
To hear them'talk, it has little or no rel-
evance to Sunday's matchup at Lucas Oil
Stadium.
"Honestly, for us, that '07 thing was
kind of like us coming together as a foot-
ball team," defensive end Justin Tuck said
Monday when the NFC champions ar-
rived in Indy. "We just said we wanted to
kill a dynasty, and that's what they were.
But now, we've been here before and we
felt as though all that is secondary. We
just want to come in here and have our
mind focused' on playing a great football
game, and not really getting caught up in
all the hoopla around the game."
Or the hoopla still attached to the 2007
NFL championship. Replays of David


shown around the clock along with the
Giants sacking Tom Brady five times.
The Giants (12-7) might need to repli-
cate that performance to stop New Eng-
land (15-3) from winning its fourth Super
Bowl under Bill Belichick and Brady at
quarterback.
"We had a lot of hits on him," Tuck said.
"Even when we didn't hit him, he didn't
have the time to sit back there and allow
some of the routes to develop. We know
that as a D-line, we put a lot of pressure
on ourselves to make sure that we are in
his face. He is a hell of a quarterback, and
he is going to do a lot of things to throw
us off our rhythm.
S"You are going to get your shots be-
cause they are an explosive offense and
they like to take shots downfield, too. We
are going to have our chances, and we
just are going to have to do a great job of
taking advantage of them."
New England didn't take advantage
in that Super Bowl, the last time both
teams got this far. Dredging up what
went wrong not only is painful but, the


fensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. "This
is something that is going to stick with
you for the rest of your life. 2007 was
2007, now we're in 2012. Both teams are
different. I don't think we're looking for
revenge."
Belichick is playing down that angle,
too even if some believe he's con-
stantly reminding his players that the Gi-
ants not only beat them in the Super Bowl
four years back, but beat them at home in
November.
"I've been asked about that game for
several days now. All of the games in
the past really don't mean that much at
this point," said Belichick, 3-1 in NFL
championship games. "This game is
about this team this year. There aren't re-
ally a lot of us coaches and players who
-were involved in that game, and very few
players, in relative terms, between both
teams. We are where we are now, and
we're different than where we were ear-
lier in the season. The Giants are where
they are now, and I think they're different
than where they were at different points

on your football team, but you
don't want someone who puts
themselves in a position to
hurt your team. So there's a
standard there, with how flex-
ible you are."
By Super Bowl standards,
it's extremely tame.
The most memorable mo-
ments leading up to the. title
game have been delivered
by players willing to say ex-
actly what's on their mind.'
Joe Namath started it with his'
guarantee of a Super Bowl
win, back in the days when
etiquette called for players
to say nothing even remotely
inflammatory.
As the culture of the game
changed more trash'talk,
touchdown celebrations and
look-at-me moments ,the
Super Bowl became the big
stage for the biggest mouths.
During the title game of the,
2005 season, for instance,
Seattle tight end Jerramy Ste-
vens ignited a back-and-forth
with Pittsburgh's Joey Porter
by suggesting Seattle was go-
ing to win. Porter shot back
that Stevens was a "first-round
bust" who was "soft" and
would end up "on his back" a
lot during the game.
The trash talk made for a
lively week capped off by the
Steelers getting the final word
with a win.
The Giants did a little trash
dressing when they played
the then-undefeated Patriots
in the Super Bowl four years
ago, arriving in Arizona in
black suits to show they were
serious about ending New
England's bid for a perfect
season. Eli Manning led a late
touchdown drive for a 17-14
_win.


"Honestly, for us, that '07
thing was kind of like us
coming together as a football
team," defensive end Jus-
tin Tuck said of the "Men In
Black" look. "We just said we
wanted to kill a dynasty, and
that's what they were. But
now, we've been here before
and we felt as though all that
is secondary."
Their coaches have to be
pleased.
Belichick "'is known for
cracking down when one of
his players spouts off. Last
year, receiver Wes Welker sat
out the opening series of a
playoff loss to the Jets after he
made several foot and toe ref-
erences subtle digs on Jets
coach Rex Ryan, the subject
of foot-fetish reports in New
York. .
This season, Belichick muz-
zled longtime self-promoter
Chad Ochocinco, known to do
anything including chang-
ing his name to get atten-
tion when he was in Cincin-
nati: The receiver has been on
good behavior this season af-
ter arriving from the Bengals
in a trade, wanting to play in
a Super Bowl rather than
cover one for his social media
network.
So, Ochocinco has followed
the team philosophy, which re-
ceiver Deion Branch summed
up on Monday.
"Do what's right, put the
team first," Branch said.
"You're not going to jeopar-
dize what we have going here.
Look at the big picture and put
the team first."
Coughlin sees it the same
way, which is why his Gi-
ants weren't about to instigate
anything when they hit town.
Coughlin's philosophy, which

could get-them riled up. When
Brady's comments to the' pep
rally back home were men-
tioned on Monday, the Gi-
ants immediately came to his
defense.
Yes, they took his side.
"Man, it was a pep rally,"
Tuck said. "What was he sup-
posed to say?"
Linebacker Mathias Kiwa-
nuka had the same reaction
when reporters gave him 'a

"I wouldn't expect any-
thing else," Kiwanuka said,
referring to Brady's comment.

"We're hoping pitching
willbeoneofourstrengths,"
the coach said. "For our
pitching to be successful,
we've got to build up more
endurance and just get in
better shape. That's com-
ing along, and I think we'll
make more progress as the
season starts."
Offensively, Leuenberger
carried the heaviest load
last year for the Lady Ti-
gers, batting .506 with 39
hits, a home run, and 21
RBI.
McDaniel andVaughn are
the leading returning hit-
ters for GHS both batted
over .400 last year while
Sorey and Miller each hit
well over .300 in 2011.
"Hopefully, we'll be pretty
solid there," Haynes said of
his team's offense. "We're
putting a lot of focus on
having quality at-bats.
That's our biggest deal,
making contact and put-


right track.
"I think so. The Ver-
non game was just such
a tough loss," the coach
said. "We led at the first
three quarters and just
let it slip away. I think we
needed (Monday's win) for
aklittle confidence builder
to show that we could fin-
ish games."
Rasheed Campbell add-
ed 16 points for Graceville,
with Marquavious John-
son scoring eight.
Josh Thompson had 35
points to lead Rehobeth.


ting the ball in play. But we
have a lot of areas we have
to focus on individually."
Haynes has previously
coached baseball, but this
is his first time coaching
softball, and the coach said
that it has been a great ex-
perience for him thus far.
"I really enjoy it. It's a
lot of fun," he said. "I look
forward to practice every
day, and I know the girls do
too. The time just seems to
pass by, and it always feels
like it's over too quick."
Despite his team's youth,
Haynes said there's no rea-
son this Graceville team
can't put together a big
season this year.
"I say this every day, that
the 2011 season is over and
this is 2012. It's a good time
to start a new thing here at
Graceville High School,"
he said.
"We just have to work
towards getting better ev-
ery day. Being successful
is about getting hot at the
right time. The way you
can help that process is by
finding weaknesses, cor-
recting mistakes, and mov-
ing forward."
The Lady Tigers will play
in 'a preseason classic at
Arnold High School on Fri-
day and Saturday against
Holmes County and Baker
before opening the regular
season on Tuesday at home
against Wewahitchka.

seconds on the clock.
The third quarter was even
more dominant for the Lady
Pirates, who outscored the
Lady Gators 19-2 to com-
plete a 28-2 run.
Baker had six more points
in the period, and McMillon
added seven including her
third 3-pointer of the night
- to make it 53-18 Lady
Pirates.
"I thought we played pretty
good," Sneads coach Er-
ich Alderman said after the
game. "Tasharica did a good
job of controlling the pace,
and La'Tilya did a great job
as well. La'Tilya was excited

because she's our only senior
and this his the first time she's
made it past the first round of
the district tournament."
It has been a resurgent sea-
son for the Lady Pirates, who
sport their most talented team
in recent years.
However, they'll face the
monumental task Friday of
trying to knock off the dis-
trict's only undefeated team,
Ponce De Leon, at 6 p.m.
PDL is 23-2 on the season,
a perfect 10-0 in district play,
and has won nine straight
games overall.
The first match-up between
the teams was a 60-31 PDL
home victory on Nov. 28, fol-
lowed by a 63-45 win over
the Lady Pirates on Dec. 13
in Sneads.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Be careful, because
someone with whom you'll,
be involved might not be
operating by the rules.
PISCES (Feb.20-March 20)
A failure to select com-
panions who are equally as
enthusiastic about life as
you are could put too many
restrictions on everything
you attempt to do.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Unless you organize
yourself and the job at
hand, you wont accom-
plish much.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
If you have a bad time,
it won't be because you're
not sociable, but because
of the group with which
you're involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
When you utilize your
friendliness and charm,
situations in which you'll
be involved will turn out
to be fun and successful.
Conversely, ,letting, your
ego govern the day will
cause you unhappiness.
.CANCER (June 21-July 22)
As long as friends are in
accord with your views and
opinions, you'll be amica-
ble and fun tb be with.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
The'disadvantages of a col-
lective endeavor in which
you're involved will bring
down the whole ship if you
make them more impor-
tant.than the many posi-
tive facets of the project.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It might not be entirely
the fault of others if you
have problems dealing on
a one-on-one basis with
people.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Attend firsttii~g, while
you are fresh, to all'the jobs
and responsibilities that
must get dohe.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Again you could find
yourself in a similar social
situation that you didn't
handle too well previously.
If you insist upon repeat-
ing' the same mistake,
expect the same results.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) You might insist
on-seeing yourslT? hs the
underdog. -I you lo, itll be
a no-win situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Be on guard when
participating in an activ-
ity that has competitive
elements.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My husband and I moved
from Alaska to Hawaii a year ago to help
a friend who is suffering with ALS (Lou
Gehrig's disease). "John" promised to pay
my husband $120 a day if he would leave
his job and act as caregiver. My husband
agreed, and he not only helps with all his
physical therapy, but also takes him to all
doctor and other appointments. We have
taken care of his vacation rental busi-
ness, repairs on his house, landscaping
and general upkeep. We also have cooked
all his meals for the past 10 months.
Six weeks ago, John was in a hospital
50 miles away, and we visited almost
daily to help with his physical therapy.
While he was in the hospital, John gifted
us with $21,000 for a piece of land he
sold. We've spent $2,000 of it on his bills,
brakes for his car, medications, etc.
NoTw that he is home, he says he was
too generous and wants the money back.
So far, we've returned $12,000. Annie,


Bridge


If we could play a bridge deal a second time,
we should be able to correct any faults made
the first time. And, of course, so could our
opponents. However, we only get one shot at
making the right play which is what in to-
day's deal? South is in four spades. West leads
a low heart. East wins with his ace and returns
the heart queen.
The auction was sensible and practical. Yes,
with four-card support for a five-card or longer
suit, South might have steered his partnership
toward diamonds; but with his six solid spades,
it was unlikely a diamond contract would have
been better.
With those solid spades, South might be
inclined to ruff the second heart and draw
trumps. But he is then left with only one spade.
When he turns to diamonds, East takes a trick
-in the suit and leads a heart, making South ruff
with his final trump. East wins his second dia-
mond trick and plays another heart to defeat
the contract.
When you have a side suit that needs to be
established, it is usually right to start on that
suit immediately. At trick three, South should
play a diamond to dummy's ace, then lead an-
other diamond. East wins but has no riposte.
If he plays a heart, declarer throws a club from
his hand, ruffs on the board, and plays another
diamond. South ruffs the next heart, draws
trumps, and claims.


we have never been paid a dime for our
services, including the daily $120 he
promised my husband. John is angry
and mean-spirited and rages against
everyone. John doesn't have. much longer
to live. We will continue to help, but I
believe this latest attempt to take back
the money is a form of abuse. What shall
we do?
GIFTED OR NOT

CDar Gifted: You and your husband
have been kind and.generous. In the
later stages of his disease, John may not
only be depressed. He also may not be
thinking clearly. Please forgive his rants,
but protect yourself in case you are held
liable for the remaining disputed money.
Keep itemized lists of what you have
spent the "gift" on, what you have paid
for John's benefit out of your own pocket,
and the amount he promised to pay for
his care. And talk to a lawyer.

Stanley ready to move on from Torre lapse
./~~~~: : 2.^-: i .^ ., **.jl


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE
Robert Garrigus didn't see any rea-
son to stick around for the finish.
He had watched enough of the
final round at Torrey Pines to see that
Kyle Stanley, whom he described as
"exploding with talent," had a three-shot,
lead and headed for a sure win. Garrigus
left for the spa to get a massage.
It didn't take long for him to figure out
what had happened.
"I got back to my car, saw my phone
and it was blowing up," Garrigus said.
"I had six or seven text,messages. I had
four or five voicemails. I wasn't talking to
anyone on Sunday, so there was no need
for anyone to call me."
He didn't have to read a single'message.
He didn't have to listen to a voicemail.
He knew.
"I looked at my phone and thought,
'Uh-oh. He blewit,"' Garrigus said
Monday evening.
Among his priorities this week at the
Phoenix Open was to find Stanley and


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
'Kyle Stanley is consoled by John Rollins (right)
after making a triple bogey on the 18th hole of
the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open
golf tournament on Sunday.

offerthe kind of advice that only comes
through experience.
Garrigus has every bit of that.
He had a three-shot lead on the final
hole of the 2010 St. Jude Classic when he
smothered his tee shot into the water,


took a drop, then tried to go at the green
not realizing the size of his lead. He
went left of the water into the trees and
eventually made triple bogey. He lost in a
three-man playoff.
Stanley can relate only to the triple
bogey, the water and a playoff.
He did everything right on the final
hole of the Farmers Insurance Open,
even taking a sand wedge instead of a lob
wedge for his third shot over the pond to
a hole location in a bowl at the front of
the green. What happened next surprises
him still. His shot landed behind the hole
and raced off the front of the green and
into the water.
After a drop into the first cut to elimi-
nate even more spin, he landed his shot
on the top shelf and three-putted for
triple bogey. On the second playoff hole,
he missed a 5-foot par putt and watched
Brandt Snedeker pose with a trophy that
should have been his.
Stanley was still in shock when he
faced the media. His eyes were glassy
with tears. His lip quivered. He answered
every question, even if he had to stop at


times to compose himself. Looking back,
he realizes that was part of the healing.
S"I tend to wear my emotions on my
sleeve a little bit," Stanley said Tuesday
at the'Phoepix Open, where he agreed to
another interview to help put his
collapse behind him.
"It was very tough to swallow. But one
of the things I learned is I think you need
to really be prepared for whatever this
game can throw at you.
."It's a crazy game," he said. "It can love
you; itcan hate you."
Stanley, like Garrigus, was going for his
first PGA Tour victory.
Stanley, who grew up in the Seattle
area, was'an All-American at Clemson
who played in the Walker Cup. He is in
his second fullseason on the PGA Tour,
so naturally skilled and polished that his
long-term outlook is better than some of
the rookies who won last year.
"I know I may not have believed it on
Sunday night, or even Monday morning.
but everybody just kept telling me I'll be
a lot stronger for it, and I agree with that.
I will."


College Basketba


Murphy matures on, off court f
The Associated Press


GAINESVILLE Flor-
ida's Erik Murphy has a
small scar just above his
right eye, a remnant of the
eight stitches he needed
after a recent collision with
teammate Patric Young.
It's hardly the only make-
over for the 6-foot-10
junior.
Murphy's game. has im-
proved dramatically this
season, and "coach, Billy
Donovan says the power
forward has made an
equally noticeable jump
in maturity since his ar-
rest last April. Combined,
they have.helped Murphy
develop into a consistent
scorer and reliable team-
mate for the 12th-ranked
Gators (17-4, 5-1 South-
eastern Conference).
"Erik, in a lot of ways,
was just kind of floating
through ';last year),;
Donovan said. "I thinik'f
was able to post him up,
pin him up a little bit and
get his back against the
wall to make a decision
on who you want to be as
a person, who you want
to be as a player, who you
want to be as a student and
where do you want to go
with your life.
"I've seen a lot of growth
in Erik in a real, real
positive woa. '. ".'
Murphy and reamirtate
Cody Larson were arrest-
ed in St. Augustine and
charged with felony bur-
glary. Donovan suspended
them immediately. The
State Attorney's Office
later. reduced the charge
to misdemeanor crimi-
nal trespass, saying the
players simply trieU to go
into another person's car
without permission.
Donovan reinstated
Murphy five months after
the arrest, saying he had
served his punishment.
"The offseason issue
made me grow up really
quick," Murphy said. "It
definitely helped me. It
was a blessing in disguise'
It helped me grow up
mentally, mature."
His game has shown
progress, too.
Murphy is averaging 10.6
points a game while shoot-
ing 53 percent from the
field. Murphy also offers a
challenging matchup.
He is Florida's best 3-
point shooter one of the
best in Donovan's 16 sea-
sons in Gainesville and
hitting 48.5 percent from
behind the arc would be
good enough to rank fifth in
the country if he averaged
a few more 3s a game.
"To me, the whole key
to their team right now
is Murphy," Mississippi
State coach Rick Stans-
bury said. "He's the guy
that's changed their team
in every way. He's playing
with a lot of confidence,
too.... He gives them some
length defensively, and of-
fensively he's so skilled. He
stretches you out. All he
does is make it easier for all

Missisippi State's Dee Bost (3) during a game on Saturday.


driving that basketball."
Murphy has scored in
double digits in nine of the
last 12.games. It helps that
Murphy is as healthy as
he's been all season.
Murphy injured his right
knee during practice in
November. He missed 10
days of practice, sat out
three games and needed
extra timeto get back into
paymng sHape^
A A'Mii6itl' afte he re-
turned, Murphy took an el-
bow to the face in practice.
He didn't miss any playing
time, but his shot seemed
a little off the next three
games as he went 2 of 9
from 3-point range.
The last three games,
though, he made 8 of 14
from behind the arc.
"He definitely brings a
different element because
he's gbr great size and can
'h bt6t th~-ball" 'Donovan
sais "I think Erik, a lot of
times, puts you in a little
bit of a bind because of his
ability to step away from
the basket and shoot. He's
confident in that, and I'm
confident in him shooting
the ball." '" '
The Gators haven't had a
big man who could shoot


like this since Matt Bonner
in 2003. Although Dono-
van has had plenty of tal-
entbd big men since Al
Horford, 'Joakim Noah,.
Marreese Speights, Alex
Tyus and Vernon Mack-
lin none of them was a
deep threat.
S"With Erik, we're able to
space the floor," Donovan


or Florida


said. "When he's in con-
stant movement, it puts a
lot of pressure on the de-
fense because you've al-
ways gotta account for him
wherever he's at."
To get to this point,
Donovan needed Murphy
to make strides on and off
the court.
"I think (the arrest) really.
forced him todosomesoul-
searching in terms of what
was important and what
he wanted to do," Dono-
van said. "He's responded
from a lot of those adversi-
ties in a very positive way
and it's made him better as
a person, made him better
as a player. He's becoming
more and more reliable
for me than maybe he has
been his first two years. ...
I think he's grown up and
he's become much more
consistent as a player."
