Jackson County Sheriff's Investigator Virgil Watson carries a
computer component to the Jackson County Recycling trailer
as authorities empty out the Big Dawg Internet cafd just east
of Marianna.


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Officers with the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office and representatives
of the 14th judicial circuit's State
Attorney raided two local Internet
cafes Tuesday afternoon, mark-
ing both closed as they gutted the
operations.
Computer equipment and docu-
ments were removed from Big Dawg
Internet cafd and the one at Kindel
Lanes bowling alley, both businesses
located just off U.S. 90 on the east
end of Marianna.
This is the second time both


have been shut down in the last
six months or so. Jackson County
Sheriff Lou Roberts acknowledges
that some people think the rules on
such establishments exist in a gray
area of the law, but that he believes
they are essentially illegal gaming
operations. ,
Each Internet caf6 operates in its
own way, but essentiallytheir patrons
often play sweepstakes games that,
Roberts said, constitute the kind of
gambling disallowed by Florida law.
He said the Attorney General, Gov.
Rick Scott, and a Jackson County
Grand Jury share that opinion of the
statutes as they now exist.


"If the legislature makes it legal
and regulates it, that's all fine' and
dandy," Roberts said. "I know that
the House believes they are illegal
and should be banned. The Senate
wants to regulate them. They may
well be addressing it again. But until
then, am I supposed to turn my head
and act like it's not happening? We
have sufficient established opinion
on the law that clearly requires me
to take action.
"We feel it's clear. We shut them
down five or six months ago on that
belief and I would have hoped that

Gallery is more than art, it's a community fixture
BY LAUREN DELGADO-V
ldelgado@icfloridan.com


Artist Lillie Clark has been
drawing for more than 40
years. She stockpiled her art
for a time, but then had a vision.
She wanted to start a gallery in
Campbellton.
"I can't help but to do this," Clark
said. "It's my duty, it's my honor,
and it's my job."
That vision, LMC Impressions,
Inc., grew from a simple art gallery
however. It became The Gallery
of Arts and Culture Center, giving
children a place to study, people to
get a hot meal and some company,
and more ... peace.

Jeff Hildebrand shows the path that a DOT truck took as a
dead dog was dragged behind it on a chain. The animal was
being taken to a disposal site. Here, he points to a fluid trail.

Man objects to dead

dog being dragged


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Truck driver Jeff Hildeb-
rand lives in California,
but hauls freight all over
the country. Once when
he was traveling through
Jackson County about 10
months ago, his cat jumped
through an openwindowin
his cab and he's been look-
ing for it. ever since. When,
he comes to this area of
the country, he pulls into
the truck stop where the
cat disappeared, in hopes
that the animal will bound
out of the woods and come
to him.
It was this mission that
led him to stop in Mari-
anna Tuesday morning.
But another animal-re-
lated mission seized him
when he pulled out of a
motel parking lot across
the street. An orange-yel-
low truck bearing a state
of Florida Department of
Transportation license


plate was towing a large
dead dog on a long chain.
Hildebrand set his brake
and jumped out of his
truck with a cellphone in
hand. Running after the
vehicle, he started tak-
ing pictures. The driver,
he said, stopped about 50
yards down the road and
pulled into the median.
The driver inquired as to,
why he was chasing him.
Hildebrand said he asked
the driver whyhe was drag-
ging the dog, and that the
driver said the animal was
dead and indicated that he
was removing it from the
roadway. Hildebrand said
he asked the driver why he
didn't pick the dog up (and
put it in the bed of the ve-
hicle), instead of dragging
it. According to Hildeb-
rand, the driver replied,
'Why don't you pick it up?'
As Hildebrand continued
to take pictures, he said,

Man arrested after

getting suspect package


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan,com

Authorities say a Chipley
man who received a mys-
terious package at a truck
stop in Jackson County,
then dumped some of the
contents
while be-
ing chased
by deputies,
faces mul-
tiple charges
after the in-
Dean^ cident of last
Friday.
According to a press re-
lease from the Jackson'
County Drug Task Force,
Kay Sharhone Dean was
arrested on charges of hit
and run, defacing a traffic


control device, fleeing and
attempting to elude, reck-
less driving, tampering
with evidence, and posses-
sion of a controlled sub-
stance with intent to dis-
tribute. He was also cited
for littering and running a
stop sign.
According to the release,
the Cottondale Police De-
partment, the task force,
the U.S. Postal Service, the
Florida Highway Patrol, the
Chipley Police Department
and the Washington Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office worked
together in an investiga-
tion that began when the
postal service intercepted
the package.

4-H Explorers



study CPR


LOCAL


WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 2012 3AF


Special to the Floridan

The 4-H Explorers Club
held its monthly meeting
on Jan. 19, at the Jackson
County Extension Office.
Club members continue
to "explore" a different life
skills topic to study togeth-
er each month. The unit
of study for January was
"CPR-Lifesaving Skills."
While the children learned
these important skills, the
adults had the opportunity
to earn their certification
in the lifesaving course.
Engineer Brent Cara-
way was the instructor for
the Explorers Lifesaving
Skills course which began
with classroom instruc-
tion followed by hands-on
learning. Instructor Cara-
way taught the group the
proper course of treat-
ment to use for an adult,
a child and an infant that
are in distress. Students
and parents learned the
chest compression rate
and breath rate to admin-
ister to a victim'in need of
oxygen due to an injury or
health emergency such as
a heart attack.
They had the opportu-
nity to put their knowledge
to the test, as they used
mannequins to perform
resuscitation techniques.
Caraway also demonstrat-
ed the universal sign for
choking and how to help
a choking victim by use of


the Heimlich maneuver.
The standing room only
class was well received
and extremely beneficial
to club members and their
parents who also par-
ticipated in the class. The
next Explorers meeting in
February will "explore" nu-
trition, taught by leaders
Connie Young and Cheryl
Robinson.
4-H is the youth devel-
opment program of the
Florida Cooperative Exten-
sion Service and the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
4-H is open to all youth
between the ages of 5-18
regardless of gender, race,
creed, color, religion or
disability. The focus of 4-H
is to provide young people
with opportunities to de-
velop life skills through
participation in commu-
nity clubs, project clubs,
day camps, residential
camps, school enrichment
programs, and competitive
events.
For more information
about joining 4-H or start-
ing a 4-H club in your
community,, contact the
Jackson County 4-H Agent,
Ben Knowles, at 482-9620.
For more information
about the Explorers Club,
contact the club leaders
Connie Young at 482-5824
or Cheryl Robinson at

be "Making the Most of
New Opportunities." 2012
promises to be a very in-

should get the highest pric-

when they market their
cattle this year. Because
of increased costs, how-

the greatest risk with more
invested than ever before.
For these reasons Dr. Walt

Prisons must


findwaysto


cope with


elderly inmates

Scripps Howard News Service

In the mid-1990s, there was a mini-wave of
"granny dumping." Elderly people, aban-
doned by families, showed up at hospitals and
Salvation Army facilities,.often with a note to the
effect: "Please take care of her. We no longer can."
That cold-hearted solution is not available.to a
U.S. prison system bracing for the time when, if
is increasingly running geriatric facilities behind
bars for prisoners too ill, infirm or incompetent
to be left to themselves.
For the moment, the numbers aren't terribly'
large 124,000 federal and state prisoners 55
and older, including 26,200 who are 65 and older
but the growth rates are alarming.
A recent Human Rights Watch report shows the
number of prisoners older than 55 is growing at a
rate six times that of the rest of the prison popu-
lation. The number of prisoners 65 and older
increased 63 percent from 2007 to 2010, while the
total prison population rose just 0.7 percent.
The reasons given for the trend toward an aging
prison population include longer mandatory
minimum sentences and life without parole. And
there's a new development: More people over age
50 are committing crimes. In Ohio, the number of
new prisoners over age 50 grew from 743 in 2000
to 1,815 in 2010.
The medical costs of elderly prisoners, who are
generally uninsured, are steep. In Georgia, ac-
cording to the report, the average annual medical
cost ofa prisoner over 65 is $8,565; for a younger
one, it's $961.
There are other costs, too, such as retrofitting
prison cells, bunks, bathrooms and showers to
make them handicapped accessible. There is
also the cost of training prison staff to deal with
inmates with dementia or Alzheimer's and related
problems of incontinence and erratic behavior.
Simply releasing inmates has legal and regula-
tory obstacles. If those are overcome, often the
inmate has no place to go. And, according to the
report, many nursing homes don't want ex-fel-
ons. Some people have no choice but to simply
stay in prison if they're lucky, in one that has
hospice care.
"Granny dumping" is not an option for the
prisons. The judicial system h-as already made
the prisons the dumping ground, and it is not a
problem a humane society can ignore.

Volunteer military has drawbacks


BY ROSS HOYLE
Tampa Bay Times

s U.S. forces come home
/- from Iraq after nine years
at war, the nation is facing
professional troops sufficiently
bruised and isolated from Ameri-
can society that home defense ex-
perts whisper we may need major
changes in military education and
even a conscription-based national
youth service program to reboot
our fighting forces.
Painful reminders are everywhere
of an unpopular U.S. military ven-
ture that began with grave strategic
miscalculations and is ending with
violence and political instability in
Iraq. In Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai
is openly contemptuous of his U.S.
protectors, while Afghan security
-forces murder allied officers.
These U.S. military campaigns
have cost $1.31trillion, helped
cripple the economy, extinguished
6,400 American lives, more than
150,000 Iraqi and Afghan lives
and left disturbing rates of suicide
and posttraumatic stress disorder
among returning U.S. veterans.
The wartime shortcomings of the
all-volunteer military are a legacy,
in part, of the draft's end 40 years
ago. There's been a growing discon-
neqt between the American public
and the U.S. armed forces.
Outgoing joint chiefs chairman
Adm. Mike Mullen declared last.
year that "America no longer knows
its military, and the U.S. military no'
longer knows America." I
As late as the 1980s,-some 40
percent of 18-year-olds had at.
least one veteran parent. By the
1990s, that number had dropped
to 18 percent. A recent Pew poll
confirmed that only 33 percent of
Americans between 18 and 25 now
have a family connection with the
military.
In short, almost 70 percent of
military-age Americans no longer
have direct ties to the military. Most
Americans simply no longer have
the same personal stake they once
did in the military's actions.
Waning public interest has al-
lowed the military to operate in a
kind of self-imposed moral


isolation that has weakened the
U.S. officer corps, the backbone of
the volunteer force.
The challenge facing the Ameri-
can military today is as much
moral and ethical as budgetary and
economic.
The state of constant war has
exposed serious limitations in our
high-tech, all-volunteer force. This
force, the envy of militaries around
the world, was created in the wake
of Vietnam.
Milton Friedman, a Nobel Prize-
winning University of Chicago
economics'professor, saw the.
military as a labor force that would*
respond to economic imperatives
like any other: the appeal of a job,
a steady salary and a secure career.
Friedman's economic theory ended
the unpopular draft.
Forty years later, the American
people's instinctive interest in
their troops' welfare has inevitably
atrophied.
Tentative questions about the
sustainability of the volunteer
military, and the growing civilian-
military cultural divide, began to
surface in earnest last year. The
drumbeat picked up this past fall
at Washington's respected Center
for a New American Security on the
issue of military suicides. :
Military suicide victims drawn
from 1 percent of the popula-
tion now represent more than
20 percent of reported suicides
nationwide.
"Can the all-volunteer force be
viable if veterans come to be seen
as broken individuals?" CNAS
researchers asked.
The consensus among enlisted
soldiers and officers I've spoken
with recently is that the.235,000-
member U.S. officer corps, the
volunteer forces' engine, is in a
state of professional and ethical
exhaustion.
Several studies have documented
the flight of junior officers from
the Army and Marines since Iraq
spun out of control in 2005 and
2006. Repeated deployments have
left even the best officers stretched
thin, overworked and often
under-resourced.
Despite their tactical and


technological sophistication,
mid-level officers are divided over
shifting strategic aims and military
doctrine, wavering civilian lead-
ership, bureaucratic rigidity and
indecisive in-theater operations.
The way forward is a systematic
retooling of how our professional
military educates and chooses its
leaders and recruits its soldiers.
Contemporary U.S. officers require
technical expertise in the military
sciences, the traditional core of a
military education. But they need
an equally sophisticated grasp of
international relations, political
history, legal systems, languages ,
and foreign cultures.
The military's emphasis should
be on rigorous graduate studies
for commissioned officers and
ongoing education for noncommis-
sioned officers and senior leaders
that meet the standards of the best
civilian universities. Officer selec-
tion should broadly reflect Ameri-
can society, rather than discour-
age recruitment from among the
nation's economic and social elites.
To reduce the military's isolation
from civilian life, the Pentagon
should begin by deeply cutting
manpower and supporting re-
newed conscription in the form of
a three-year mandatory national
service program (including civilian
energy, education, infrastructure,
environmental and urban service
options) for all Americans between
18 and 25, with special benefits for
military service.
A well-designed national service
program is not a comprehensive
prescription for what ails the U.S.
military. It is not a return to the
draft. But it would restore a needed
sense of civic responsibility among
young Americans. It would sup-
ply manpower demands during
wartime and replace most private
contractors with responsible en-
listed troops.
Most important, it would recon-
nect our standing military forces
with the restraining influence and
support of the American people.

Jobless rate falling; cross your fingers


BY DALE MCFEATTERS
Scripps Howard News Service

If there is such an animal as an
economic report of unalloyed
good news, the January unem-
ployment report was as close as it
gets, especially seen in the context
of the recession and the tremen-
dous hurdles in emerging from it.
The economy added 243,000
new jobs last month. Excluding the
Census bulge and March and April
of last year, this is the biggest burst
of hiring since March 2006. The un-
employment rate now has fallen for
five straight months, a reassuring
sign of recovery and one not seen
since the end of 1994.
The politically sensitive unem-
ployment rate, stuck at around 9
percent for most off 2011, dropped
to 8.9 percent in October and
continued dropping to 8.3 percent
last month. That was something of
a surprise, because as the economy
picks up, more people flock back
into the workforce which, of
course, is a good thing, but until


they find jobs the unemployment
rate can rise again even though
more people are working.
That 8.3 percent was the lowest
since February 2009, the month
after President Barack Obama took
office. The nadir for unemployment
in our current cycle was 10 percent
in October 2009.
Lest we forget what good times
looked like, in 2006 and almost all
of 2007 the jobless rate never got
out of the mid-4 percent range.
Last month's job growth was
spread across many economic sec-
tors: professional services, retail,
construction, leisure and hospitali-
ty. Only state and local government
employinent showed declines.
Hard-hit manufacturing added
50,000 jobs, the most in a year, and
a separate survey, from the trade
group Institute of Supply Manage-
ment, showed manufacturing in
January expanding at its fastest
pace in seven months.
All economic reports come with
"on the other hand" disclaimers,
but even here the bad news is not
j


as bad as it was. The economy
added 1.82 million jobs last year,
twice as many as in 2010. That
still leaves 12.8 million Americans
unemployed; that's the fewest since
the recession ended in June 2009,
for what comfort it's worth. -
Even the "tinderemployment"
rate reflecting part-timers who
want, but can't get, full-time work
and those who have quit looking
altogether fell from 15.2 percent
to 15.1 percent.
For Obama to benefit politically
from these numbers, two things
have to happen: The economy has
to continue improving through the
fall, and voters have to viscerally
feel that the economy is indeed
getting better.
Stuart Hoffman, chief economist
for PNC Financial Services Group
Inc., told Reuters about this newest
report: "I think this is a sign that
maybe the economy is reaching
the holy grail ofa self-sustaining
economic expansion."
Oh, Mr. Hoffman, we do sp hope
you're right.

Property tax cut proposal dies


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A ballot proposal
that would have further slashed property
taxes for Florida homeowners failed on a
tie vote in a House subcommittee Tues-
day after opponents said it would shift
the tax burden to non-homestead prop-
erties and "bully" local governments.
Supporters argued the proposed state
constitutional amendment (HJR 1289)
would have helped .cure inequities
among homeowners created by the ex-
isting Save Our Homes amendment.
Voters, though, still will have a chance
to cut property taxes through another
proposal lawmakers last year placed on
the November 2012 ballot. Amendment
4 includes a "super exemption" for pri-
mary homeowners except for school tax-,
es as well as some relief for businesses
and other non-homestead properties.
The proposal -that went down 7-7 in
the House Community and Military Af-
fairs Subcommittee would have added


.another non-school tax super exemp-
tion for primary homeowners. It also
would have authorized the Legislature
to increase homestead exemptions in
the future.
"It lets the state bully local the govern-
ments and say 'We know best, we're go-
ing to take your money; you figure out
how to fund all the things you need to
do with less money,'" said Rep. Freder-
ick Costello, R-Ormond Beach. "That's
wrong."
Costello's comment drew a retort
from Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone
Heights.
"This bill isn't bullying," Van Zant said.
"In fact, it is defending our citizens to
stop the decades of bullying through
property taxes that have been invoked
on them by local government."
Van Zant said the proposal spon-
sored by Rep. Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford,
should be passed as a step to eventually
eliminating property taxes and replacing
them with a sales tax increase.

No smoke alarms in
home where girls died
PENSACOLA-- Fire
officials say there were no
smoke alarms in the Pen-
sacola rental home where
two young girls died.\
The Pensacola News
Journal reports the fire
started in the bedroom
where 8-year-old Te'Laysia
Jackson and 10-year-old
Te'Sjohnna Sanford were
sleeping early Monday.
Witnesses told firefight-
ers the girls' stepfather
tried to rescue them, but
the intense flames kept
him from getting inside
the bedroom.
The newspaper reported
Tuesday that the call came
into the Pensacola Fire
Department at 1:36 a.m.
Monday. The first truck
arrived five minutes later
to find the home fully en-
gulfed in flames.
Officials say one fire-
fighter injured his shoul-
der fighting the fire.
The cause of the fire
is under investigation,
though officials say foul
play is not suspected.

Neighbors cry foul
when truck overturns
PEMBROKE PINES
Neighbors in a South
Florida neighborhood had
to deal with a smelly situ-
ation after a sewage truck
overturned.
Officials say about 100
gallons of Waste spilled
from an All Star Toilets
sewage tanker when it hit
a utility pole and rolled
over Monday afternoon in
Pembroke Pines.
Fire Rescue spokesman
Tom Gallagher told the
South Florida Sun Sentinel
that no hazardous mate-
rial response was needed.
He says the sewage was
treated and all chemicals
used were biodegradable.
A Pembroke Pines street
cleaner "vacuumed up"
the sewage. Officials say
the foul odor went away
once the waste and the
truck were removed.
Officials say the driver
was wearing a seat belt
and was not injured.

Cops: Boy, 11, tried to
set student on fire
NEW PORT RICHEY
-Authorities say an
11-year-old boy cornered
another boy in the bath-
room of a Tampa Bay area
middle school and tried to


set him on fire.
The Tampa Bay Times on
Tuesday reported the boy
aimed a can of Old Spice
body spray at the boy and
lit the stream. The incident
happened Feb. 3 at Gulf
Middle School in New Port
Richey.
New Port Richey po-
lice say the victim was
trapped in the bathroom
stall and could not escape.
the flames. According to
police reports, he was not
seriously injured but his
pants briefly caught on
fire and the hair on his
arm was singed. Police say
the boy was arrested and
charged with aggravated,
battery. He was taken into
juvenile custody.
No further details were ,
immediately available.

Teen stabbed during
fight at school
MIAMI LAKES Au-
thorities say a student was
stabbed during a fight at a
Miami Lakes high school.
School officials say the
fight occurred Tuesday
afternoon at Barbara Gole-
man High School.
According to the Miami
Herald, two male students
got into a fight with a
third student, who pulled
a pocket knife. The third
student then cut one of his
two attackers in the back.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue
responded and took the
wounded student to
a Miami hospital. His
injuries didn't appear to be
life-threatening.
The identities of the
students weren't being


released. It wasn't imme-
diately clear what criminal
charges would be filed.

Fla. appeals school
funding decision
TALLAHASSEE At- '
torney General Pam Bondi
is appealing an appellate
court's decision in a school
funding lawsuit to the
Florida Supreme Court.
Bondi noted in papers
filed Monday that the 1st
District Court of Appeal
has certified the mat-
ter to the justices as a
question of "great public
importance."
The appellate court
last year turned down a
request from state officials
to prevent the case from
going to trial.
The suit alleges state
public school funding and
policies fail to meet con-
stitutional requirements
to provide children with a
high quality education.
It was a rare and divided
ruling by the full appellate
court rather than just a
three-judge panel.
The judges split 8-7. The
suit was filed on behalf of
two advocacy groups and
parents and students in
Duval and Pasco counties.

Fla. Senate boosts
schools by $1 billion
TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Senate is propos-
ing a nearly $1.2 billion
increase in state spending
on schools.
A Senate panel on
Tuesday rolled out its
initial school budget that
includes the proposed


increase. The Senate
proposal to boost state
support for schools would
increase per-student fund-
ing by 3.1 percent.
Gov. Rick Scott warned
that he would veto the
2012 state budget if law-
makers did not set aside
a significant amount of
money for public schools.
The House is scheduled to
vote on a budget later this
week that would increase
per-student funding by
2.27 percent.
Sen. David Simmons,
R-Altamonte Springs and
chairman of the Senate
education budget com-
mittee, wants to use some
of the extra money to pay
for intensive reading train-
ing for students attending
low-performing schools.

Ex-Sen. Dawson to
plead guilty in case
MIAMI Former state
Sen. Mandy Dawson is
planning to plead guilty
to tax charges arising out
of a high-profile political
corruption case.
Dawson's intention to
plead guilty was included
in a federal-court filing
Monday by her attorney.
A judge set an April 21
deadline for her to enter
the plea.
Federal prosecutors say
the 55-year-old Dawson

A team of scientists
intercepted female logger-

the females' migrations
and used a new method to
determine when they had

can focus conservation

Court: CA gay marriage ban is unconstitutional


The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO A fed-
eral appeals court on Tuesday
declared California's same-sex
marriage ban unconstitutional
but agreed to give sponsors of
the bitterly contested,'voter-ap-
proved law time to appeal the
ruling before ordering the state.
to resume allowing gay couples
to wed.
The three-judge panel of the
9th U.S. Circuit Court of Ap-
peals ruled 2-1 that a lower court
judge correctly interpreted the
U.S. Constitution and Supreme
Court precedents when he de-
clared in 2010 that Proposition 8
- a response to an earlier state
court decision that legalized gay
marriage -was a violation of the
civil rights of gays and lesbians.
"Proposition 8 serves no pur-
pose, and has no effect, other
than to lessen the status and hu-
man dignity of gays and lesbians
in California, and to officially
reclassify their relationships
and families as inferior to those
of opposite-sex couples," states
the opinion written by Judge
Stephen Reinhardt, one of the
court's most liberal judges.
However, the appeals panel
took pains to note that its deci-
sion applies only to California,


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Supporters of gay marriage react outside the James R. Browning United
States Courthouse after a federal appeals court declared California's ban
on same-sex marriage unconstitutional on Tuesday in San Francisco.


even though the court has juris-
diction in nine western states.
California is the only one of
those states where the ability for
gays to marry was granted then
rescinded, the court noted in its
narrowly crafted opinion.
"Whether under the Constitu-
tion same-sex couples may ever
be denied the right to marry,
a right that has long been en-
joyed by opposite-sex couples,
is an important and highly con-
troversial question," the court
said. "We need not and do not


answer the broader question in
this case."
The ruling will not take effect
until the deadline passes for
Proposition 8's backers to ap-
peal to a larger panel of the 9th
Circuit. Lawyers for the coalition
of conservative religious groups
that sponsored the measure said
they have not decided if they will
seek a 9th Circuit rehearing or
file an appeal directly to the U.S.
Supreme Court.
"We are not surprised that
this Hollywood-orchestrated


attack on marriage tried in
San Francisco turned out this
way. But we are confident that
the expressed will of the Ameri-
can people in favor of marriage
will be upheld at the Supreme
Court," said Brian Raum, senior
counsel for the Alliance Defense
Fund, a Christian legal aid group
based in Arizona that helped
defend Proposition 8.
One legal analyst said the U.S.
Supreme Court might not agree
to take up the case on appeal
because the appeals court fo-
cused its decision exclusively on
California's ban.
"The ruling is on the narrowest
ground possible," said University
of Santa Clara constitutional law
professor Margaret Russell.
Supporters of gay marriage
praised the ruling as historic.
"The message it sends to young
LGBT people, not only here in
California but across the coun-
try, (is) that you can't strip away
a fundamental right," said Chad
Griffin, president of the Ameri-
can Foundation for Equal Rights.
He formed the group with direc-
tor Rob Reiner to wage the court
fight against Proposition 8.
The panel also said there was
no. evidence that former Chief
U.S. Judge Vaughn Walker, who
struck down the ban 18 months


ago, was biased and should have
disclosed before he issued his
decision that he was gay and in
a long-term relationship with
another man. Walker ruled after
the first federal trial to examine
if the U.S. Constitution guaran-
tees same-sex couples the right
to marry,
Proposition 8 backers had
asked the 9th Circuit to set aside
Walker's ruling on constitu-
tional grounds and because of
the thorny issue of the judge's
personal life. It was the first in-
stance of an American jprist's
sexual orientation being cited as
grounds for overturning a court
decision.
Walker publicly revealed he
was gay after he retired. Sup-
porters of the gay marriage ban
argued that he had been obliged
to previously reveal if he wanted
to marry his partner like the
gay couples who sued to over-
turn the ban.
In its ruling Tuesday, the panel
majority said it was unreason-
able to presume a judge cannot
apply the law impartially just be-
cause he is a member of the mi-
nority group at issue in a case.
"To hold otherwise would dem-
onstrate a lack of respect for the
integrity of our federal courts,"
the opinion said.


Lawyer: US nonprofits


caught in Egypt aid dispute


The Associated Press

CAIRO Americans facing trial in
Egypt over activities of their pro-democ-
racy groups have been caught in a dis-
pute between the U.S. government and
Egypt over aid, a lawyer representing the
Americans shid Tuesday.
In a measure of the depth of the ten-
sions, an Egyptian government del-
egation abruptly canceled meetings in
Washington with U.S. lawmakers set for
Monday and Tuesday, after angry Ameri-
can officials warned the clash could
jeopardize around $1.5 billion in annual
foreign aid to Egypt.
A senior Egyptian official confirmed
that the government has objected for
years to die U.S. directing part of its aid
to pro-democracy and human rights
groups, calling the practice illegal and
acknowledging that a cut in U.S. aid
could follow: .
The dispute has led to 19 American
workers with the groups facing trial and
six banned from leaving Egypt. Among
the sixis Sam LaHood, son of U.S. Trans-
portation Secretary Ray LaHood. A num-
ber of Americans have taken refuge in.
the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
German Foreign Minister Guido West-
erwelle said Tuesday that he summoned
the Egyptian ambassador to protest Cai-
ro's decision to prosecute two Germans
in the case. *
The affair began with raids by Egyp-
tian security forces on 17 offices of 10
advocacy groups last month, evoking
denunciations from the U.S. and other
countries. It also reinforced charges by
Egyptian protesters that the military


rulers who took over a year ago from
ousted President Hosni Mubarak are
perpetuating his regime's oppressive
tactics. The investigation into the work
of the nonprofit groups is closely linked
to the political turmoil that has engulfed
the nation since the ouster of Mubarak,
a U.S. ally who ruled Egypt for nearly 30
years.
The military rulers charge that the
groups fund and support anti-govern-
ment protests. The military claims that
"foreign hands" are behind the opposi-
tion to their rule. They frequently de-
pict the protesters as receiving funds
from abroad in a plot to destabilize thp
country. ''
Lawyer Tharwat Abdel-Shahed said
Tuesday that Egypt's ruJers-objected to
the funds for the groups being deducted
from U.S. -aid to the government. "This
has sparked the government's anger," he
said Tuesday, putting the total funding
directed to the groups at $45 million.
Egypt is the second largest recipient of
U.S. foreign aid, after Israel. The U.S. is
due to give Egypt $1.3 billion in military
assistance and $250 million in economic
aid in 2012.
Over the weekend, U.S. Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the
clash over the advocacy groups has
thrown U.S. aid to Egypt into doubt. .
Fayza Aboul-Naga, the Egyptian min-
ister for international cooperation, said
earlier that Egypt has been protesting a
"unilateral" U.S. measure to direct part
of its economic aid to human rights and
democracy groups since 2004, according
to her office. She described it as political
funding that is not allowed.


Looking for work? There's an app for that


The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -
Looking -for a 'promising
career in a lousy econo-
my? A new study suggests
you're apt to find it in apps
- the services and tools
built to run on smart-
phones, computer. tablets
and Facebook's online
social network.
The demand for applica-
tions for everything rang-
ing from games to quan-
tum physics has created
466,000 jobs in the U.S.
since 2007, according to an
analysis released Tuesday
by technology trade group
TechNet.
The estimate counts
311,000 jobs at companies
making the apps and an-
other 155,000 at local mer-
chants who have expanded
their payrolls in an eco-
nomic ripple effect caused
by increased spending at
their; businesses.
The study asserts, this
so-called "app economy"
is still in the early stages
of a boom driven by the
mobile computing and
social networking crazes
unleashed by Apple Inc.'s
iPhone and Facebook's
online hangout.
"This is a telescope into
what the future looks like,"
said Michael Mandel, the
economist hired by Tech-
Net to put together the
report. "This is one part
of the economy that is


actually expanding and
hiring. ,Once you point
people in that direction,
they can realign their
compass pretty quickly."
Not all the jobs being cre-
ated in the app economy
require geeky credentials.
TechNet reasons every
apps -programming job
hatches another position
in other non-technical


areas such as sales, mar-
keting, human resources
and other administrative
chores.
The TechNet study found
that the highest concen-
tration of app jobs is in the
technology hotbeds of the
San Francisco Bay area (15
percent of the positions),
New York (9 percent) and
Seattle (nearly 6 percent).

Former NFC coach Cokely picked to lead Bulldogs


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridian.com

The Marianna Bull-
dogs have a new head
football coach, and he's a
name high school football
fans from Florida should
recognize. -
Tim Cokely, who led
Northwest Florida Chris-
tian to six state champion-
ships in 12 years as coach,
will return to Florida to
coach at Marianna High
after spending the last two
seasons at Greater Atlanta
Christian in Norcross, Ga.
Cokely started at NFC in
1995, winning state titles in
1996, 1998, 1999,2000, and
2001 in his first stint with
the Eagles, and won again
in 2008 in his first season

sons at Colquitt County in
Moultrie, Ga.
The coach won 17 games
in two seasons at Greater
Atlanta Christian, but will
inherit a Marianna pro-
gram that has won just 12

But Cokely said he's ex-
cited about the opportuni-
ty to return the Bulldogs to
prominence after having
observed from afar the en-
vironment that surrounds
the program.

After having discussions

Malone looks to


o overcome youth


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridian:om '

After losing their best
player and two best pitch-
ers from last year's team,
the Malone Tigers will rely
on a senior and a group of
young players to step up
and lead the way to a suc-
cessful season in 2012.
The Tigers went 14-12
last season, but lost their
top two starting pitch-
ers in left-hander Derek
Orshall and right-hander
Sean Henry.
Henry had a solid sea-
son for Malone in 2011,
posting a 3.52 earned run
average with 58 strikeouts
to 33 walks, and four com-
plete games.


Orshall, however, was
the Tigers' ace for the past
three seasons, posting a
team-best 2.71 ERA last
year while also leading
the ieam in hitting with a
.367 average.
Malonee coach Max
Harkrider said it will
be hard to replace both
players.
"Everybody knows what
kind of a pitcher Derek
was for us, so nobody is
going to replace him. We

dkent@jcfloridian.com
The No. 19 Chipola Lady Indians
will travel to Panama City today to
try to do what they've done just
once in coach David Lane's eight
seasons at Chipola beat the Gulf
Coast Lady Commodores on the
road. ,
The No.4 LadyCommodores (18-
3) are 5-2 in the Panhandle Con-
ference and just a game behind
first-place Pensacola State, while
Chipola (15-8) comes into today
at 3-4 in.the league and in need
of another victory to keep pace
with third place Northwest Florida
State (4-4 in the Panhandle).
Gulf Coast won the first match-
up 72-63 on Jan. 21 in Marianna,
but if the Lady Indians can win
the rematch, it will give them a leg
up in the race for the conference's
third state tournament berth.
"If we win, it puts us in a good
position, and if not, it just makes
the path a little more difficult. But
by no means would we be out of
it," Lane said. "I would just assume
go ahead and win it and help our-
selves out a little bit."
The coach said he actually be-
lieves his team matches up well
with the Lady Commodores
despite the result of the first
meeting.
"They've got some strength in-

side and so do we," Lane said. "But
our guards didn't shoot the ball
well the last time we played them,
and they got off to a good start. We
had to play catch-up the entire
time and couldn't really do it."
He said the keywas to play smart
on offense and riot make mistakes
that feed into Gulf Coast's tran-
sition attack, which seems even
deadlier at home. I


"Our offense just wasn't very
clean (in the first game) and that's
going to lead to easy baskets for
them at the other end. If we can
get them in the half-court, we
think we'll be in great shape, but
we feel that way with every team,"
the coach said.

Chipola trounces Wallace, 15-2


BY NATHANIEL FRAZIER
Media General News'Service ,

OZARK One big in--
ning was all the Chipola
Indians needed' to defeat
the Wallace Govs. But for
good measure, the Indi-
ans tacked on a couple of
more. After Wallace briefly
took a 1-0 lead in the sec-
ond inning, Chipola ex-
ploded for seven runs in
the top of the third. Tack
on five additional runs
in the fourth inning and
three more in the seventh,
and the Indians cruised
to a 15-2 whipping of the
Govs.
"This is the best we've
played all year," said
Chipola coach Jeff John-


son, who saw his team
improve to 5-4. "It's good
to see -us play like this.
We hadrit been getting
big hits when we needed
them, and our pitching
hadn't been that good. But
today we got both."
And what does Johnson
credit this turnaround to?
"We worked the heck out
of them yesterday in prac-
tice and it paid off today,"
he said. "We had a home
run and we played good
defense. We had been
struggling defensively."
As for Wallace coach
Mackey Sasser whose
team fell to 1-3, he said
"Our guys have got to grow
up. I can't use that excuse


of us being a young team
because all of these guys
played together in the fall.
They've got to learn how
to play the game at this
level. We left several 0-2
pitches right out over the
heart of the plate. When
you do that, you're going
to get beat. We've got to be
able to mentally prepare
ourselves or it's going to
be a long year."
Sasser's Govs briefly
took the lead when catch-
er Clay Fenwick led off the
second inning with a solo
home run over the left
field fence. But in the top
of the third, the Indians

there and try to find a way
to steal one on the road."
The first loss to Gulf Coast
was one of two games in
which the Indians had 2-
point leads in the final 40
seconds only to end up
losing.
In a conference race this
tight, Headrick said his
team couldn't afford to give
any more games away late.
"We've talked about fin-
ishing games, and I hope
our guys are to a point
where if we've got a lead
in the last minute, we can
try to find a way to win
from here on out," he said.
"Obviously, they beat us at
home, and it will be a lot
tougher to beat them at
their place."
Fortunately for the Indi-
ans, they'll be playing this,
game with starting cen-
ter Joseph Uchebo, who
missed five conference
games with a knee injury
before returning Saturday
against Pensacola.
Uchebo played just 16
minutes in that game, but
grabbed eight rebounds

Senior Nick Breeden will
be counted on to be the
new ace of the staff after
picking up three victories
and two saves as a junior.'
Breeden also batted .300
last year with a team high
16 RBI, and will bat in
the middle of the batting
order.
"We expect a lot out of
Nick this year," Harkrider
said. "He's the only senior
I know to have been in the
fire. How he plays for us
this year is huge. He's been
with me since the seventh
grade. It's his team. Maybe
he can do what seniors are
supposed to do."
Junior Brett Henry,
sophomores Jonathan
Sikes, and Robert Orshall,
and junior Sneads trans-
fer Garrett Harris will also
be counted on to help out
on the mound, though
Harkrider said that none

"I believe coach Cokely's

believe we've hired an out-

MELBOURNE, Australia
- Yard Tseng unleashed
her new, more powerful
swing at Royal Melbourne
on Monday, playing nine
holes of practice to hone
the tweaks to her technique
and familiarize herself with
the sandbelt course that
will host the Women's Aus-
tralian Open this week.
Tseng started 2011 with
a title at the,Women's Aus-
tralian Open and went on
to win a total of 12 tourna-


"We didn't play very
well. It was a lot of the
same mistakes we've been
making," he said. .
"We just need to play
better and learn from
the mistakes we're con-
stantly making. At some
point in time, it has got to
change."
Tonight in Panama City


and made his presence
known on the court.
"Obviously, we're a lot
better team when he's on
the court," Headrick said
of the 6 foot, 11 inch, 250
pound big man. "He's just
a guy that takes up space
in the paint whether he's
clearing out space for of-
fensive rebounds and
put-backs, or sitting down
in the lane and making
guards rethink penetrating
because he's there.
"He, does a great job for
us, and he's a smart player.
He knows how to play and
he's competitive. He's had a
great year for us and we've
been a different team with
him on the floor."
If Chipola wins, it will
move to 4-4 in league
play and finish the sec-
ond round of conference
games at 3-1, which was
Headrick's stated goal after
his team's 1-3 start.
, "To get to 3-1 is really
where we wanted to be,"
he said. "A win would put
us where we need to.be.
More than- anything, this
is about our guys having
a will and finding a way to
go out there and make it
happen."


"We've got several guys
that can throw strikes, but
I don't think we have that
one dominant arm like
we've had with Derek the
past three years," he said.
"You want that guy that
you know when he's on the
mound you've got a real
good chance to win. Last
year with Derek and Sean,
we had two pretty good
arms.
"Nick might be that guy,
but he's never been that
guy before. It's his year to
see if he can do it."
The Tigers will need to
pitch well with a great deal
of unanswered questions
about the offense.
Malone struggled to
consistently score runs all
of last season, and it could
be a similar story this year
after losing one of its only
two .300 hitters from last
season.
"It's going to be the same
deal offensively for us. I
think we can be a little
better hitting team, but we
won't know until we play
the games," Harkrider said.
"Everybody looks good
in the cage. It's when the
game starts that it counts.


"I really don't know what
my record is. I don't look
back at it," he said. "That's
in the past. The things I'll
talk about are in the future
and my vision for MHS
football."
What we know for sure
is not a part of that vision
is the Wming-T offense that
the Bulldogs have run for
the past five years, first
brought to the school in
2007 by Rob Armstrong
and continued on when
Steve DeWitt took over in
2009.
"The Wing-T is definitely
out the window," Cokely
said. "It's not because it's
not a good offense. I just
don't know it and don't run

Ladson Montgomery-
and Edgar Delgado led off
with back-to-back singles.
After being bunted over
by Sasha LaGarde, Tyler
Bocock dribbled an in-
field single back toward
the pitcher that scored the
first run. After a walk and
a- pop out, Kaleb Barlow
came through with the big
hit the Indians were look-
ing for.
With two outs, Barlow
'hit a three-run, bases
clearing double in the gap
between center and right
field. Austin Southall fol-
lowed with an RBI a single
to right field, and Jerad
Curry capped off the scor-
ing with a three-run hom-
er over the left field fence.
That chased starting and

from the game.

double scored the Govs

We've got guys capable of
hitting, but we've just got
to do it.
"I have no clue about the
order yet. We're still figur-
ing out each kid's hitting
ability, where they can hit
and where they're com-
fortable, and how we can
score some runs. We'll
have to bunt, hit and run,
and move people over.
We're definitely not go-
ing to win any shootouts.
We have to pitch and play
defense, which is what
we try to hang our hat on
anyway."
The arrival of Harris,
who hit .307 for Sneads
last year, could help, but
Harkrider said he wants to
see his new second base-
man produce first hand.
"Garrett has some abil-
ity, but I haven't seen him
under the lights to see how,
he'll react," the coach said.
"But I have a lot of faith
that he will play well. He'll
hit at the top of the order
somewhere. He's got a clue
of how to play, and he's a
good guy too. He's meshed
in well here.I think he'll do
pretty well."

out and try to affect the
defense by putting the ball

but obviously you have to
have someone who can
throw it, so we'll mold the
team around the talent we
have."
However, Cokely said
his teams aren't built on
finesse football, btit be-
ing physical on defense
and strong throughout the
roster.
"Philosophically, we put
our best players on de-
fense because we want to
have a tough, physical de-

"If we're not ready for

what we have to focus on

runs came via a gift from
the Govs. With the bases
loaded, Barlow hit a high-
hopping ground ball to
short stop. The ball was
thrown away, and three
runs scored, giving the In-
dians a 12-2 lead.
The Indians capped off
their scoring in the sev-
enth inning with three
more runs. Bocock had
an RBI single and Poole
added a two-RBI single.
Jerry Coram picked up the
win for the Indians on the

The Tigers will be a new
district this season, with
the Paxton Bobcats poten-
tially the team to beat.
Harkrider said he Wasn't
sure where his team fit in
due to the lack of experi-
ence, but he believes the
Tigers are capable of play-
ing with most anyone.
"We're counting on sev-
eral freshmen and sopho-
mores, but it seems like
we're doing that every year
here lately,'' he said. "I
don't know a lot about the
new district, but I think
all of the teams are pretty
close. We'll work hard to
try to get better and have a
chance at the end."

offensively, and your de-
fense can keep you in the
game."
The coach said gain-
ing that physicality starts
in the weight room, and
building the program back
into a winner starts "one
day at a time."
"We try not to get too
deep philosophically, but
we want to have one good
day tacked on to another
good day," Cokely said.
"We want those good days
to lead up to spring ball,
and then have one good
practice at a time. You can
only control what happens
today. If you work hard
each day, eventually good
things will happen."

Baltimore Ravens running back Ricky Williams (34) runs between New England Patriots defensive end Mark Anderson (95) and
defensive tackle Vince Wilfork (75) during the first half of the AFC Championship game.



Ricky Williams done with football, again


The Associated Press

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -
Ricky Williams is retiring
from the NFL.
Again.
This time, however, it ap-
pears to be for good.
The 34-year-old Williams
told the Baltimore Ravens
on Tuesday that he won't
be back to fulfill the sec-
ond year of a contract he
signed in August. Playing
as a backup to Ray Rice
this year, Williams ran for
444 yards and scored two
touchdowns.
He also became the 26th
player in NFL history to
reach 10,000 yards, rush-
ing, reaching the plateau
in the season finale at
Cincinnati.
Williams retired pre-
viously before, the 2004
season when facing a
four-game suspension for


violating the league's drug
policy. He returned in 2005,
then left to spend the 2006
season with Toronto of the
Canadian Football League.-
On his Twitter account,
Williams said he intends to
"do something really spe-
cial" in the. next phase of
his life.
He told the University of
Texas, where he won the
Heisman' Trophy, "I have
to thank coach (John) Har-
baugh and the Ravens or-
ganization for the oppor-
tunity they gave me this
year. I had so much fun
and really appreciated the
chance to finish on such a
great note."
After his college career at
Texas, Williams broke into
the NFL in 1999 with the
New Orleans Saints. Mike
Ditka, then coach of the
Saints, traded all the team's
draft and first- and third-


round picks in 2000 to pick
Williams fifth overall.
Williams spent only three
years with New Orleans,
but during over 11 years
in the league he had five
1,000-yard rushing seasons
and finished with 10,009
yards on the ground.
Williams led the NFL in
2002 with 1,853 yards rush-
ing for the Miami Dolphins
and received his lone Pro
Bowl invitation that sea-
son. He backed that up
with 1,372 yards in 2003,
giving him what remains
the two most productive
rushing seasons in Dol-
phins history.
Although Williams' last
start was in 2009, fie en-
joyed coming off the bench
for the Ravens.
."It's been interesting,"
he said in November. "It's
been an adjustment for
me, but I love the organi-


zation and I love my team-
mates so I'm having a good
time. I'm enjoying myself.
Anytime you play a team
sport, the success of the
team really makes every-
thing better. It's nice."
Baltimore went 12-4 this
season and lost to New
England in the AFC cham-
pionship game.
During that November
interview, -Williams was
asked whether playing as a
backup could possibly ex-
tend his career.
"At this point, my focus
is just to finish my career
strong," he said. "I'm not
even thinking two or three
years down the line. 'But
one positive about not car-
rying the ball is my body
does feel good."
Williams scored 73
touchdowns over his ca-
reer, all but eight of them
on the ground.


Cycling

Contador may still


appeal doping ban


The Associated Press

MADRID Alberto
Contador is considering
appealing his two-year
doping ban handed down
to him by. sport's highest
court, maintaining his in-
nocence a day after being
stripped of his 2010 Tour
de France title.
Contador'said Tuesday
he has no plans to re-
tire from cycling despite
hinting previously that
he might quit if banned
for testing positive for
clenbuterol on his way to
winning a third Tour title,
which was taken away
from him with Monday's
ruling. I
Contador said he com-
pletely disagreed with
the Court of Arbitration
for Sport, which rejected
his claim that his posi-
tive doping test for the


muscle-bnilding steroid
was caused by eating con-
taminated meat.
"Something doesn't
work with the system,"
Contador said at a crowd-
ed news conference in
his native Pinto, on the
outskirts of Madrid. "We
will fight as far as we
need to demonstrate my
innocence."
Contador 'said his
lawyers are examining
whether to appeal to Swit-
zerland's supreme court,
which is the only body he
can still turn to in hopes
of being exonerated.
"I've tried everything
to understand this rul-
ing, but I cannot. I can-
not understand this ban
they have handed me,"
Contador said. "If there is
anything else I can do to
prove my innocence I'd
like to know."

Horoscope
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Appearances could
be deceptive, such as a sit-
uation where you believe
you're helping another,
but in reality the other
person will end up doing
something great for you.
PISCES(Feb.20-March 20)
-You will have an excellent
chance to take an opportu-
nity and transform it into
something outstanding.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) There is a market
for the gifts you possess,
but it won't come to you
- you must find and ex-
ploit it. Start to investigate
different areas.
TAURUS, (April 20-May
20) You could be more
fortunate than usual in
situations that contain
elements of chance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- A situation about which
you've been quite negative
could surprise you with a
fortuitous resolution.
* CANCER (June 21-July
22) Once you determine
that you have a chance for
something you want, put
your muscles and joints to
work.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-You might start out with
some rather modest objec-
tives, but once you spot
something looming over
the horizon you'll immedi-
ately switch targets.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept..22)
- The two greatest assets
you possess are your opti-
mism and your common
sense. When the duo acts,
you won't have any trouble
fulfilling an undertaking.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- A change you've been
trying to orchestrate on
your own may happen with
a smidgen of intervention
from Lady Luck.

- Someone who has been
watching you for a long
time has decided that he or
she wants to meet you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) By demonstrat-
ing a willingness to be co-
operative and to share your
assets, you will engender a
similar response from the
people who benefit from
your actions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) A couple of people
who have always proved
lucky for you could prove
to be fortunate again.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My husband and I both
work and make good incomes. He has
two daughters, now aged 16 and 19, and I
have been their stepmom for 12 years.
Last Christmas, each child received
nearly $400 in cash gifts from the ex-
tended family. A week later, both girls
saw jackets they wanted. I said we would
pay half and they could use some of their
Christmas money to contribute the other
half. One chose to buy a $140 jacket. The
other decided not to buy anything.
My htisband was irked that I required
them to pay half. He prefers that they
have minimal financial pressure so they
can concentrate all their time and effort
on schoolwork. What do you think?
STEPMOM

Dear Stepmom: We've got your back
on this one. It's not as if the girls needed
the money to buy food. Asking them to
help pay for nonessential luxury items,
especially when they have plenty of cash


Bridge
Concentrate on your bridge and you will
forget your other troubles. But you may easily
be distracted, especially in the card play, if you
fear you have done something wrong during
the auction.
This deal provides an example. Look at the
East hand. With East-West vulnerable, South
deals and opens one heart, West makes a weak W
jump overcall of two spades, and North leaps A
to four no-trump, Blackwood. What would you
do? At the table, East passed, South rebid five
hearts, and North raised to six hearts, which *
was passed out. West led the spade ace. What 4
should East have discarded?
North's use of Blackwood with no aces and a
void was debatable, but he hoped that if South
had only two aces, neither would be the dia-
mond ace. East had a tough decision over four
no-trump. If West would have read five no-
trump as showing two long minors, that would
have been sensible. Alternatively, East could
have overcalled five diamonds, planning to
show his clubs next.
Here, though, seven of either minor would
have gone down three, and six hearts can be
defeated.What is West going to do at trick two?
He will lead a second spade for East to ruff,
never guessing that East has two voids. But East
knows that he cannot ruff. He must not lose
concentration; he must discard the club ace.


to do so, teaches them something about
financial responsibility and delayed
gratification.

Dear Annie: "Understands in Nebraska"
was the.most recent of several letters
from women who have lost their desire
for sex. That was me a few years ago.
I had no desire for sex, but complied, as
I felt it was my "duty." Eight years ago, we
moved to a new city, which meant new
doctors. I found a wonderful ob-gyn.
She asked about my libido, and I told
her the truth. She explained about how
hormones can become depleted after
menopause and gave me some low dose
synthetic hormones to try.'
Not only did I have more energy, but
my libido came back and sex was better
than ever. I want thqse women to know
they can feel healthy and energetic again.
Bio-identical hormones and testosterone
changed my life.
STILL FRISKY AT 60,

AP: Big East


moving toward


adding Memphis


The Associated Press

A person familiar with
the talks says the Big East
is in discussions with
Memphis about the Tigers
joining the conference in
all sports.
The Tigers likely would
join in 2013 when Hous-
ton, Central Florida and
SMU from Conference
USA already are set to join
the Big East.
The person spoke on
the condition of anonym-
ity Tuesday because talks
were ongoing between
Memphis and the Big East.
CBSSports.com. first re-
ported the talks and said a
deal could be announced
later this week.
Memphis athletic direc-
to R.C. Johnson, who is
retiring in June, did not
respond immediately to
a message left on his cell
phone by The Associated
Press. Associate athletic di-
rector Bob Winn said there
is no new update on the
status of Memphis' athletic
affiliation.
"We're always, as we have
been for well over a year
now, we're always looking
for things that are in the
best interest of the uni-
versity and the athletic de-
partment," Winn said.
"But at this point there -
has been no change in that
status."
The Big East is trying to
replace basketball powers
Syracuse apd Pittsburgh
andWest Virginia. Syracuse
and Pittsburgh are leaving
for the Atlantic Coast Con-
ference while West Virginia
is headed to the Big 12.
Memphis has been try-
ing to mdve from Con-
ference USA since being
snubbed when the Big East
expanded in 2005, losing
a longtime rivalry with
Louisville.
A departure now would
be pricey for the Tigers.
The exit fee from Confer-
ence USA for 2013-14 is
$500,000 plus Memphis'
share of television rights
revenue, which is ap-
proximately .$6.13 mil-
lion, according to a league
spokeswoman.
The Tigers' value to the
Big East is in basketball,


"We're always, as we
have been for well over a
year now, we're always
looking for things that
are in the best interest of
the university and the
athletic department. But
at this point there has
been no change in that
status."
Bob Winn,
Memphis associate athletic director

where the Tigers have
made 23. NCAA tourna-
ment appearances with a
record of 32-23. The Tigers
played in the national title
game in 1973 and 2008,
when they lost to UCLA
and Kansas respectively.
They also reached the Fi-
nal Four in 1985 and lost in
three other regional finals.
Louisville coach Rick
Pitino has been lobbying
the Big East to add Mem-
phis to help strengthen the
league in basketball. Lou-
isville and Memphis have
spent years together first
in the Missouri Valley Con-
ference, the Metro Confer-
ence and Conference USA.
Pitino again called out for
league officials to consider
Memphis after Louisville
beat Memphis on Dec. 17.
"I'm just hoping the Big
East gets smart and does
something about that and
allows them to come into
the league," Pitino said. "I
keep getting on the pul-
pit and saying this: We
got hurt big time and we
need Memphis. Memphis
doesn't heed us, we need
Memphis. We need Tem-
ple. We need to build up
basketball again."
. With John Calipari as
coach, Memphis made four
straight NCAA tournament
appearances between
2006 and 2009. Josh Past-
ner, who took over when
Calipari left for Kentucky
in 2009, took Memphis
to the NCAA tournament
last season after winning
the Conference USA tour-
nament. Memphis will be
hosting Conference USA's
men's and women's bas-
ketball tournaments in
March.

Blue Apple'


Giants recognized as
Super Bowl champs
in NYC victory parade

The Associated Press

NEW YORK Thousands of fans
roared as New York Giants quarter-
backEli Manninghoisted the team's
Super Bowl trophy from a glittering
blue-and-white float Tuesday dur-
ing a victory parade through New
York City, which Mayor Michael
Bloomberg quipped should now be
nicknamed the "Big Blue Apple."
The parade set off from the south-
ern, tip of Manhattan and moved
slowly north to City Hall as fans
stood dressed head to toe in Giants
gear and confetti wafted slowly
down from the high-rises that line
the street.
The MVP Manning, joined by
coach Tom Coughlin, Bloomberg,
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other
teammates, waved and grinned
from the float as a deep roaf rose
from the crowds.
Defensive end Justin Tuck, who
led the team's defense and sacked
rival quarterback Tom Brady twice
during the 21-17 victory over the
New England Patriots, said he was
glad to be part of the team.
"We made it here by believing in
each other. We believe in every guy
on this team," he said. "Honestly,
we wouldn't be here today without
your support."
The team was introduced at a City
Hall Plaza ceremony with thunder-
ous applause from the thousands

Heroes in New York on Tuesday.


of fans outside. A lucky 250 fans re-
ceived tickets to the fete, where the
Giants were honored with symbolic
keys to the city. ;
The crowd went' wild for': run-
ning back Ahmed Bradshaw, who
plopped down in the end zone
to score the'Wirting touchdown.
Wide receiver Victor, Cruz did
his trademark salsa moves as he
accepted his key.
Manning joked about the team's
record of fourth-quarter come-
backs. "Make it tough but make it
possible," he said, laughing about
how the team blew an early lead to
come back and win. The Giants had
eight fourth-quarter comebacks to


win games during the season.
"Finish games, finish fourth quar-
ters and finish the season strong.
That's what we did," Manning said.
Coughlin said the Giants were
successful because they never gave
up.
"The key thing was to remem-
ber this: All things are possible for
those who believe," Coughlin said.
"We always believed."
Some fans had waited since 6 a.m.
to catch a glimpse of their favorite
players. About half of a Long Island
high school class skipped school to
see "a whole nation coming togeth-
er in one place this parade," said
MikeKing, 16, ofWantagh.
