Florida House


panel rejects food


stamp sweets ban


The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE A
proposal to prevent food
stamps from being used to
buysweets and saltysnacks
died Monday in a Florida
House subcommittee.
The panel stripped the
junk food provision from
a bill (HB 1401) that also
would prohibit welfare re-
cipients from using debit-
like electronic cards to ac-
cess cash benefits outside
of Florida or at strip clubs,
liquor stores, bars and
gambling establishments..
The panel then approved
.the truncated bill 9-5.
The junk food provi-
sion would have pro-
hibited the use of food
stamps to purchase sweets
such as candy, cupcakes.

-0 and pudding. It would
have also banned the pur-
chase of pretzels, popcorn,
potato chips and other
salty snacks
Several members who
votecforit, though, warned
the sponsor theywould op-
pose a similar Senate bill
(SB 1658) if that measure
passes that chamber still
containing the food stamp
provision or any effort to
restore it to the House ver-
sion. Each bill must clear
one more committee in its
chamber before it can get a
floor vote.
Opponents said the pro-
posed food stamp limits
would infringe on indi-
vidual responsibility and

GETTING IT RIGHT
On Feb. 3, 2012, the Jackson
County Floridan published a
story titled "Scam offers insur-
ance for water lines." The story
reported the Graceville Police
Department's warning that a
"scam" was taking place in the
city. The Floridan has found out
that HomeServe USA Repair
Management (Florida) Corp. is
indeed a real company that sells
insurance for water lines. The
company insists it is not a scam.

Feds recover $4.1B in health care fraud in 2011


The Associated Press

MIAMI Federal authorities say
they recovered $4.1 billion in health
care fraud judgments last year, a re-
cord high which officials on Monday
credited to new tools for cracking
down on deceitful Medicare claims.
The recovered funds are up roughly
50 percent from 2009. Attorney Gen-
eral Eric Holder and Department of
Health and Human Services Secre-
tary Kathleen Sebelius were expect-
ed to make the announcement at a
news conference Tuesday.
The Department of Justice and the
Department of Health and Human
Services told The Associated Press
that agencies are doing abetter job
of screening providers before they
get in the system and have beefed up
enrollment requirements. Now in-
vestigators are conducting site visits
to make sure moderate risk providers
have a legitimate office. Higher risk
providers are subject to fingerprint
and criminal background checks.
Authorities have long said the solu-
tion to solving the nation's estimated
$60 billion to $90 billion a year Medi-
care fraud problem lies in vigorously
screening providers and stopping


payment to suspicious ones.
They also say it is important to end
the antiquated system of paying the
claims then chasing suspicious ones.
By the time officials catch on to bo-
gus billing patterns, crooks typically
dump that provider ID and open a
new one, or flee the country. The
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services has come under fire for lax
screening as violent criminals and
mobsters are also getting involved,
seeing the fraud as more lucrative
than dealing drugs and having less
severe criminal penalties.
Halting Medicare fraud has become
even more paramount as the scams
that once bilked $1 million or $2 mil-
lion a decade ago have morphed into
sophisticated multiinillion dollar
networks involving doctors, patient
recruiters and patients.
"Fighting fraud is one of our top
priorities and we have recovered an
unprecedented number of taxpayer
dollars," Sebelius -said in a state-
ment. "Our efforts strengthen the in-
tegrity of our health care programs,
and meet the president's call for a re-
turn to American values that ensure
everyone gets a fair shot, everyone
,does their fair share, and everyone


plays by the same rules."
Federal health officials said Mon-
day they are also doing a better job
of sharing data with other agencies.
Officials credited the.spike in re-
covered funds in part.to strike force
teams set up'in fraud hot spots
around the country, including Mi-
ami, Detroit and Los Angeles.
The teams charged 323 defen-
dants, who collectively billed the
Medicare program more than $1 bil-
lion last year. That includes a mas-
sive bust in February 2011, in which
more than 100 doctors, nurses and
physical therapists were charged
with fraud in nine states. Stopping
Medicare's budget from hemorrhag-
ing that money will be key to paying
for President Barack Obama's health
care overhaul.
"These efforts reflect a strong, on-
going commitment to fiscal account-
ability and to helping the American
people at a time when budgets are
tight," Holder said in a statement.
Department of Justice officials also
noted that judges are sending a mes-
sage by doling out longer sentences.
The average prison sentence in fraud
cases was more than 47 months in
2011.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Members of Garden State Equality listen, from the gallery
as the New.Jersey State Senate passes a bill legalizing gay
marriage by a vote of 24-16 on Monday in Trenton, N.J.


NJ Senate OKs


gay marriage bill


The Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. In
a move that supporters
called a civil rights mile-
stone, New Jersey's state
Senate on Monday passed
a bill to recognize same-
sex marriages, marking the
first time state lawmakers
officially endorsed the idea
- despite the promise of a
veto by Gov. Chris Christie.
Monday's vote was 24-16
in favor of the bill, a major
swing from January 2010,
when the Senate rejected
it 20-14.
"It means the world
isn't changing, it means
the world has already
changed," Steven Gold-
stein, chairman of the gay
rights group Garden State
Equality said after the vote.
"So wake up and smell the
equality."
Before the vote, Mar-
sha Shapiro squeezed the
hand-of her longtime part-
ner Louise Walpin, and
reflected on how a body
that rejected gay marriage
two years ago was about
to change its stance. "The
pride will overpower the
sorrow," she said.
But opponents sayit's "an
exercise in futility" even if
the Assembly passes the
bill Thursday as expected,
given Christie's veto vow.
.Len Deo, president of
New Jersey Family Policy
Council, called the vote
"something we have to go
through" and said it would
be made moot with a veto.
While New Jersey differs
from most states in that it
has no law or state consti-
tutional amendment ban-
ning gay marriage, neither
its court nor lawmakers
have allowed gay nuptials.
Seven states and Washing-
ton, D.C., allow gay mar-
riage. Washington state
joined the list Monday
when Gov. Christine Gre-
goire signed a same-sex
marriage law.
In 2006, the New Jersey's
Supreme Court ruled that
the state had to give the le-
gal protections of marriage
to committed gay and les-
bian couples, but that it
need not call those protec-
tions marriage.
Lawmakers responded
by creating civil unions
rather than marriage.
Gay rights advocates say
civil unions have not pro-
vided true equality. They
complain that they set up
a separate and inherently
unequal classification for
gays something social
conservatives dispute.
Seven gay couples, along
with several of their chil-
dren, filed a, lawsuit last
year to try to get the court
to order gay nuptials be
allowed.
In the meantime, Demo-
cratic leaders in the. Legis-
lature are trying to do the
same thing by passing a
law.
When the Senate last
voted on gay marriage
two years ago, just before
Gov. Jor Corzine, a Demo-
crat who supported the
measure, left office, sev-
eral last-minute defections


"It is my opinion
that our republic was
established to guarantee
liberty to all people."
Jennifer Beck,
R.- Red Bank
killed the bill. With the ar-
rival of Republican Gov.
Chris Christie, who spoke
against gay marriage when
asked about it during ,his
campaign, advocates'
hopes dimmed.
But the bill returned this
year after Senate Presi-
dent Stephen Sweeney, a
Democrat from Deptford,
declared that it was a mis-
take for him to abstain on
the 2010 bill. He vowed to
make legalizing gay mar-
riage a priority this year.
Christie last month said
he'd veto the legislation
if it passed. Christie said
that such a fundamental
change should be up to a
vote of the people, and he
has called for a referendum
on the issue.
Democratic leaders say
they will not allow a vote,
arguing that a majority
of the people should not
be entrusted with decid-
ing whether to protect a
minority.
Instead, gay-rights sup-
porters are hopeful that
they can get enough law-
makers on their side to
override Christie's expect-
ed veto.
It would take two-thirds
of both chambers of the
Legislature and would have
to happen by the time the
current legislative session
ends in January 2014.
Sweeney said he knows
which senators he'll try to
persuade but won't name
them publicly.
Sen. Raymond Lesniak, a
Democrat from Elizabeth,,
said that if all lawmakers
voted their conscience
and didn't cave to political
pressure, there would be
enough Senate votes now
to override a veto. And he
said that some lawmak-
ers could switch positions,
partly because of the in-
fluence of gay friends or
family. "You never know
who's going to forward a
daughter, a son, a neighbor
of significant meaning of a
senator or assemblyperson
and change a mind," he
said.
Two Democrats voted no
and two voted yes in what
was otherwise a party-line
vote.
"It is my opinion that our
-republic was established
to guarantee liberty to
all people," said Jennifer
Beck, a Republican from
Red Bank who voted yes.
"It is our role to protect all
of the people who live in
our state."
Sen. Gerald-Cardinale, a
Republican from Demar-
est, was the only senator to
speak against the bill, say-
ing allowing gays to marry
goes against nature and
history. "This bill simply
panders to well-financed
pressure groups and is not
in the public interest," he
said.


Obama promotes job training



for community college students


The Associated Press

ANNANDALE, Va. President
Barack Obama called on Congress
Monday to create an $8 billion fund
to train community college students
for high-growth industries, giving a
financial incentive to schools whose
graduates are getting jobs.
The fund was part of Obama's pro-
posed budget for 2013. The overall
package aims to achieve $4 trillion
in deficit reduction over the next
decade by restraining government
spending and raising taxes on the
wealthy, while boosting spending in
some areas, including education.
Obama warned Congress that
blocking investments in education
and other proposals in his budget
would be standing in the way of
'America's comeback."
"By reducing our deficit in the
long term, what that allows us to
do is to invest in the things that
will help grow our economy right
now," Obama said during remarks
at Northern Virginia Community
College.
The White House says the "Com-
munity College to Career Fund"
would train 2 million workers for
jobs in potential growth areas such
as electronic medical records and
cyber security within sectors such
as health care, transportation and
advanced manufacturing.
Akey component of the communi-
ty college plan would institute "pay
for performance" in job training,
meaning there would be financial
incentives to ensure that trainees
find permanent jobs particularly
for programs that place individuals
facing the greatest-hurdles getting
work. It also would promote train-
ing of entrepreneurs, provide grants
for state and local government to re-
cruit companies, and support paid
internships for low-income comn-
munity college students.
Obama said community colleges
needs resources to become commu-
nity career centers where students
can learn skills that local businesses
need immediately.
"This should be an engine of job
growth all across the country, these

Annandale, Va.


community colleges, and that's why
we've got to support them," Obama
said.
Obama pointed to programs in
Louisville, Ky., Charlotte, N.C.,. and
Orlando, Fla., as good examples.
UPS overnight workers in Louis-
ville get a tuition-and-book benefit
at the University of Louisville or Jef-
ferson Community and Technical
College as part of a program de-
signed to help the company recruit
and retain workers. Central Pied-
mont Technical College in Charlotte
created a two-year degree in me-
chatronics, which combines skills
in mechanical, electrical and com-
puter fields. In Orlando, Northrop
Grumman has aggressively hired
laser technicians who completed a
program developed byValencia Col-
lege because of demand.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan
told reporters on a conference call
that the specifics of the pay-for-per-
* formance aspect of the plan are still
being hammered out, but it's pos-
sible that about $500 million would
go toward rewarding programs that
successfully place workers.
Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the
chairman of the House Committee
on Education and the Workforce,


said in a statement that he's "skep-
tical" of the president's plan, but
that Republicans support the goal
of modernizing federal job training
programs.
"The committee will give the pres-
ident's proposal the consideration it
deserves," Kline said.
Even as-the United States struggles
to emerge from the economic down-
turn, there are high-tech industries
with a shortage of workers. And it is
anticipated there will be 2 million
job openings in manufacturing na-
tionally through 2018, mostly due to
baby boomer retirement, according
to the Center on Education and the
Workforce at Georgetown Univer-
sity. The catch is that these types of
jobs frequently require the ability
to operate complicated machinery
and follow detailed instructions.
As costs at four-year colleges have
soared, enrollments at community
colleges have increased by 25 per-
cent during the last decade and now
top more than 6 million students.
People with a one-year certificate

fields can earn higher salaries than
those with a college degree, said

Obama's budget: Higher taxes for the wealthy


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON President
Barack Obama unveiled a $3.8 tril-
lion spending plan on Monday that
seeks to achieve $4 trillion in deficit
reduction over the next decade but
does little to restrain growth in the
government's huge health benefit
programs, a major cause of future
deficits.
Obama's new budget was imme-
diately attacked by Republicans as a
retread of previously rejected ideas.
The budget battle is likely to:be a
major component of the fall elec-
tion campaign.
The president would achieve $1.5
trillion of the deficit reductions with
tax increases on the wealthy and
by removing certain corporate tax
breaks. Rejecting GOP charges, he
said in his budget message, "This
is not about class warfare. This is
about the nation's welfare."
In a message that, repeated popu-
list themes Obama also sounded in
his State of the Union address, the
president defended his proposed
tax increases on the wealthy. It is
important, he said to make sure
the burden of getting deficits under
control be a shared responsibility.
. "This is about making fair choices
that benefit not just the people who
have done fantasticallywell over the
last few decades but that also ben-
efit the middle class, those fighting
to get into the middle class and the
economy as a whole," Obama said.


"The president is shirking
his responsibility to lead and
using this budget to divide."
Mitch McConnell,
Senate Republican Leader

While administration officials de-
fended the overall plan as a balanced
approach, Republicans criticized
it as failing to sufficiently restrain
the deficit. Obama had promised in
2009 to cut the deficit in half by the
end of his first term.
House Speaker John Boehner said
that Obama's budget was a "collec-
tion of rehashes, gimmicks and tax
increases that will make our econo-
my worse."
"This isn't really a budget at all. It's
a campaign document," said Senate
Republican Leader Mitch McCon-
nell of Kentucky. "The president is
shirking his responsibility to lead
and using this budget to divide."
Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, chair-
man of the HouseBudget Commit-
tee, said that Obama had ducked
"the responsibility to tackle this
country's real fiscal problems.
Ryan is preparing an alterna-
tive to Obama's budget that will be
similar to a measure that the House
approved last year but failed in
the Senate where many lawmak-
ers objected to a major overhaul to
Medicare.
"We do not intend on backing
off on anything," Ryan said in an

interview. "We intend on giving the
country an alternative and a solu-
,tion to our biggest problems."
Republicans challenged the math
underlying Obama's budget, saying
it "double-counted deficit reduc-
tions already approved in an August
budget deal and also claimed $848
billion in savings from ending the
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan even
though this money would not have
been spent.
Republican 'presidential candi-
date Mitt Romney assailed Obama's
spending plan for failing to "take
any meaningful steps toward solv-
ing our entitlement crisis."
SThis year's budget debate is ex-
pected to dominate the presidential
contest and congressional elections
with the issue not finally resolved
probably until a lame-duck session
of Congress after the November
election, when lawmakers will have
to decide what to do with expir-
ing Bush-era tax cuts and looming
across-the-board spending cuts.
Obama's new spending plan proj-
ects a deficit for the current budget
year of $1.33 trillion, marking the
fourth straight year that the deficit
would top $1 trillion.
The spending plan projects the
deficit would decrease to $901 bil-
lion in the 2013 budget year, which
begins Oct. 1. That reflects $3.8 tril-
lion in spending next year, an in-
crease of 0.2 percent over this year's
expected outlays, and a 17.5 percent
increase in revenues.

Florida prison



privatization



kept alive


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A'
bruising back-and-forth
battle over whether to
privatize a large chunk
of Florida's prisons likely
will be decided by a razor-
thin margin.
An effort to block the
planned handover of
South Florida prisons to
private contractors bare-
ly failed during hours of
contentious debate on
Monday.
But those leading the
charge against the priva-
tization which has
become a top priority of
Senate President Mike
Haridopolos predicted
that they would have just
enough votes to kill the
measure when it comes
up for a final vote on
Tuesday.
"Our 20 are solid," said
Republican Sen. Paula
Dockery of Lakeland,
referring to the current
votes against privatiza-
tion. With 20 votes against
and 20 for, the bill (SB
2038) would lack a major-
ity in the 40-member Sen-
ate and die.
With the plan draw-
ing Democratic support
and Republican opposi-
tion, every vote counts.
An amendment brought
by another opponent,
Republican Sen. Mike Fa-
sano of New Port Richey,
was debated Monday and
ultimately died 21;19.


It would have killed the
plan, believed to bethe
largest prison privatiza-
tion in United States his-
tory, in favor of more leg-
islative study.
Though the swing vote
against the study came
from Sen. Dennis Jones,
a Republican from Semi-
nole, he said he's still vot-
ing against the bill.
"I like the concept of the
study but I like the idea
of just killing the bill bet-
ter," Jones said. "I don't
see anything wrong with
state workers. I think the
public has more trust in
state.workers running the
prisons than the private
sector."
The vote will cap off
a divisive debate that
resulted in Fasano get-
ting his chairmanship
stripped and causing a
.power struggle in the usu-
ally collegial atmosphere
of'fhe Florida Senate.
Nearly 4,000 prison
employees' jobs in at
least 26 South Florida fa-
cilities could be affected.
Lawmakers in support of
privatization say it could
save at least $16.5 million
a year; they're looking
to plug a hole more than
100 times that big in this
year's state budget. Op-
ponents say savings aren't
guaranteed and haven't
been proven.
Prison privatization
must return a 7 percent
savings to the state.

Fla. could curb lawsuits against doctors


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE The Repub-
lican-controlled Florida Legisla-
ture is pushing ahead this year
with changes meant to curb med-
ical malpractice lawsuits against
doctors.
This effort is being criticized as
an attack on the privacy rights
of patients and comes at a time
when fewer medical malpractice
claims are being filed, according
to state regulators.
Lawmakers are seeking to make
it harder to prove a doctor has
committed .medical malprac-
tice and to permit an attorney to

out interference from "big
government."
"Thank God there's still free-
dom, and a fat guy can get a Coke
once in a while," said Rep. Dennis
Baxley, R-Ocala.
Rep. Daniel Davis, R-Jackson-
ville, said he prefers a balanced
approach to nutrition.
"I believe my kids eat pretty
healthy, but on a hot summer day
playing outside, a Popsicle's pretty
gogd," Davis said. "That's some-
thing that is not going to harm a
child, and in fact I think it's part
of growing up."

time learning here as well.
"It's going to be easier for us to
recruit some of the cream-of-the-
crop students," Lamb said.."Being
able to provide them a comfort-
able place where they have 24-
hour access to the facilities and
no travel to worry about, there's
no question that it will allow us
to attract them more easily, and it
also provides us the opportunity
to attract top visiting scientists,
people who would like to spend

The house will accommo-
date up to eight people. Many

out the patient or patient's attor-
ney in the same room.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton
Beach and sponsor of the House
bill, said his legislation will make
Florida more attractive for doc-
tors. One of the aims of his leg-
islation is to cut down on the
number of unneeded tests given
by doctors to ward off potential
lawsuits, he said.
"This will be a great place to
practice medicine," Gaetz said.
A House panel on Monday be-
came the third committee to ap-
prove the bill (HB 385). A simi-
lar version is now moving in the


Ebony Faith Yarbrough, food
and nutrition coordinator for the
anti-hunger nonprofit Florida
Impact, told the Health Care Ap-
propriations Subcommittee the
junk food ban would bring back
stigma to food stamp recipients,
many of them still struggling in
the wake of the Great Recession.
"Requiring them to then restrict
their food purchases in a way that
kind of looks over their shoulder
into their carts into what they
have, we find to be unconscio-.
nable," she said.
Yarbrough argued there's no
scientific evidence showing food
stamp recipients purchase un-
healthy foods at a rate greater
than the general population. She
said the answer to better nutri-
tion is education.


Graduate students will come and
go for a few weeks at a time, oth-

IFAS will continue renting an
apartment in town which can
only accommodate up to four
people, at a cost of more than,
$500 a month.
In the past, graduate students
had paid a percentage of the rent
but in recent years they were. not
made to pay. Their contributions
ended because it was determined
unfair to expect them to pay their
rent in Gainesville and for the
weeks theyspend here. IFAS had
to take most of the rent money
out of its operating budget.

Senate as well.
Opponents of the bill sharply
criticized the legislation. Orlando
personal injury attorney Maria
Tejedor said the proposal will
destroy the relationship between
doctors and patients.
Tejedor also warned that the
standard of proof included in the
bill was so tough that it could al-
low a doctor to escape punish-
ment even if that physician failed
to recommend a mammogram for
a female patient who ultimately
came down with breast cancer.
"That woman would need to
virtually prove that doctor intend-
ed to give her terminal cancer,"


The bill's sponsor, Rep. Scott
Plakon, conceded defeat at the
onset, and agreed to a commit-
tee amendment that removed the
food stamp provision. The Long-
wood Republican said he realized
it was a lost cause over the week-
end when he began speaking with
members of the subcommittee.
Plakon also acknowledged it
was unlikely the federal gov-
ernment, which funds the food
stamp program, would approve a
waiver that Florida would need to
implement such restrictions.
The surviving limits in the bill
would apply to temporary cash
assistance, a separate program.
Plakon called it a "reasonable and
modest restriction."
"As a compassionate state and
society we need to provide help


$300,000. The bulk of that cost is
coming from the sale of timber,
a stand of pine trees harvested
off the research center grounds.
The trees were aging but not con-
sidered native old growth-the
original trees had been harvested
before the research center lands
were purchased. Lamb said two
local producer organizations
helped convince their statewide
groups to make critical contribu-
tions to the building fund as well.
The Florida Cattleman's Associ-
ation contributed about $19,000.
The Florida Peanut Produders
Association gave about $10,000.
Lamb said the Jackson County
chapters advocated heavily for
the project and were key support-
ers in obtaining those dollars.
Among other things, the center


STejedor told legislators.
Gaetz insisted that physicians
would still be held responsible for
their actions, but said that some-
times there are "bad outcomes"
in medicine. He also downplayed
the privacy issue, saying that any-
one who sues for malpractice is
losing their ability to keep their
medical history private.
Florida already has a very com-
plicated process for medical mal-
practice lawsuits that requires
a patient to submit a statement
from a medical expert backing up
a.negligence claim. Doctors must
also be told ahead of time that
they may be sued.


for those that cannot help them-
selves," Plakon said. "But we
should also be thinking about the
other person that is not in this
room ..., the taxpayers of Florida
and the federal taxpayers."
Rep. Elaine Schwartz, D-Hol-
lywood, opposed the bill, saying,
"It's a punishing attitude toward
people in need."
Another opponent, Rep. Mark
Pafford, said the ban on using the
cash cards outside Florida would
harm some participants in the
state's relocation program for do-
mestic abuse victims. Some have
been relocated to border areas
and have jobs in Georgia and Ala-
bama, the West Palm Beach Dem-
ocrat said. Plakon said he would
work with Pafford to address that
issue.

research; studies that help those
producers improve their crops
and herds. "The Jackson County
people were very influential in
convincing their organizations,
and we're very grateful for that.We
couldn't' have done this without
them," Lamb said. "They realize
that the research done here can
have a direct positive impact on
the viability and productivity of
what they're doing in the field."
As for the pine stand now
cleared, Lamb said that plans are
not yet firm on what to do with
the land. It could be replanted in
trees to ensure another harvest
years down the road, or could be
used to broaden the research ar-
eas, or could be sectioned off to
accommodate both needs.

Bombers target Israeli diplomats in India


The Associated Press

NEW DELHI Israel
-blamed Iran on Monday
for bomb attacks on its'
diplomats' cars in India
and Georgia, heightening
concerns that the Jewish
state was moving closer to
striking its archenemy.
Iran denied responsi-
bility for the attacks that
appeared to.mirror the re-
cent killings of Iranian nu-
clear scientists that Tehran
blamed on Israel.
The blast in New Delhi
set a car ablaze and injured
four people, including an
Israeli Embassy driver and
a diplomat's wife; the de-
vice in Georgia was discov-
ered and safely defused.
"Iran is behind these
attacks and it is the larg-
est terror exporter in the
world," Israeli Prime Min-
ister Benjamin Netanyahu
told lawmakers from his
Likud Party.
The violence added fur-
ther tension to one of the
globe's most contentious
standoffs. Irar has been
accused of developing a
nuclear weapons program
that Israel says threatens
the existence of the Jewish
state. Tehran says its nu-
clear program is for peace-
ful purposes only.
Comments by Israeli of-
ficials in recent weeks have
raised fears Israel might be
preparing to strike Iranian
nuclear facilities. While
Israel says it hopes that
international sanctions
can curb Iran's nuclear

program, leaders point-
edly note that "all options
are on the table" and have
warned that as Iran moves
closer to weapons capabil-
ity, time is running out for
action. Fearing an Israeli
attack could set off a con-
flict across the region and
send oil prices skyrocket-
ing, U.S. and otherWestern
countries have been press-
ing Israel to give sanctions
more time.
Israeli military analyst
Reuven Pedatzur said
Monday's action was un-
likely to have any bearing
on-whether Israel attacks
Iran, calling it an "isolated
incident" with rather low
impact.
The attackers in India
and Georgia appeared to
have used "sticky bombs"
attached to cars by mag-
nets, similar to weapons
used against Iran's nuclear
officials. Netanyahu said


Israel had thwarted at-
tacks in recent months in
Azerbaijan and Thailand
and unspecified other
countries.
"In all those cases, the
elements behind these
attacks were Iran and its
protege, Hezbollah," Ne-
tanyahu said, referring to
Iran's Lebanese proxy. He
vowed to "act with a strong
hand against international
terror."
Israeli media report-
ed that the government
blamed Iran based on pri-
or intelligence and that se-
curity officials feared this
could be the start of a wave
of attacks against Israeli
targets overseas.
Iranian officials rejected
-Netanyahu's accusation.
"This accusation is
within the Zionist re-
gime's psychological war
against Iran," the official
IRNA news agency quoted


Foreign Ministry spokes-
man Ramin Mehman-
parast as saying.
"The Zionist regime, due
to repeated crimes against
humanity, is the main par-
ty accused of terrorist ac-
tivities," he said, according
to IRNA.
The New Delhi attack
took place just after 3 p.m.
a few hundred yards (me-
ters) from the prime min-
ister's residence as the dip-
lomat's wife headed to the
American Embassy School
to pick up her children,
said Delhi Police Commis-
sioner B.K. Gupta.
When the minivan ap-
proached a .crossing, she
noticed a motorcyclist
ride up and stick some-
thing on it that appeared
to be a magnetic device, he
said. The car drove a short
distance, there was a loud
sound and then an explo-
sion, and the car caught
fire, he said.
"It was a loud explosion.
We realized it's not a fire-
cracker, but an explosion,
and rushed toward the
car," said Ravi Singh, own-
er of a nearby gas station.
The blast left the vehicle
charred and appeared to
blow out its rear door.
"The blast was so pow-
erful, the car behind got
damaged as well," said
Monu, a high school stu-
dent who uses only one
name.
The Israeli Defense
Ministry said the woman,
Tal Yehoshua-Koren, the
wife of a Defense Ministry


official based in New
Delhi, suffered moderate
shrapnel wounds and was
treated at a hospital by Is-
raeli doctors.
Her driver, Manoj Shar-
ma, 42, and two people in
a nearby car had minor in-
juries, Gupta said.
Israeli diplomats in In-
dia have been on constant
alert since Pakistan-based
militants rampaged across
the Indian city of Mumbai
in 2008 targeting luxury
hotels, a train station and
the Chabad Jewish com-
muhity center.
India's foreign minis-
ter, S.M. Krishna, said
India would cooperate
closely with Israel in the


investigation and prom-
ised to bring the assailants
to justice.
"I have just spoken to the
Israeli foreign minister," he
said. "I assured him that
the law of the land will take
its course."
Authorities in the former
Soviet republic of Georgia
said an explosive device
was planted on the car
of a driver for the Israeli
Embassy in the capital of
Tbilisi.
Shota Utiashvili, spokes-
man for the Georgian Inte-
rior Ministry, said the driv-
er noticed a package on
his car's undercarriage and
called police, who found
and defused a grenade.


Activists: Syrian rebels


repel attack on keytown


The Associated Press

BEIRUT Syrian rebels repelled a push
Monday by government tanks into a cen-
tral town held by forces fighting President
Bashar Assad's regime in an 11-month
conflict that looks increasingly like a civil
war.
The military pressed its offensive on
Rastan a day after the regime rejected
Arab League calls for the U.N. to create
a peacekeeping force in Syria and for an
end to the violent crackdown on dissent.
Damascus called the League initiative "a
flagrant interference, in (Syria's) internal
affairs and an infringement upon nation-
al sovereignty."
With diplomatic efforts bogged down,
the conflict is taking on the dimensions
of a civil war, with army defectors clash-
ing almost daily with soldiers. The rebels
have taken control of small swathes of
territory in central Homs province, where
,JRastan is located, and the northwestern


province of Idlib, which borders Turkey.
The Britain-based activist group Syr-
ian Observatory for Human Rights said
at least three government soldiers were
killed in the attempt to storm Rastan,
which has been held by the rebels since
late January.
"Troops maneuvered by moving on the
northern edge of town, then other forces
attacked from the south," said Rami Ab-
dul-Rahman, who heads the Observatory.
He said hundreds of army defectors were
in control of Rastan.
Rastan, home to some 50,000 people,
was one of the first areas in Syria where
people took up arms to fight the regime.
The uprising began last March as mostly
peaceful protests against Assad's authori-
tarian rule, but has become more mili-
tarized in the face of the brutal military
crackdown. The U.N. human rights chief,
Navi Pillay, told the General Assembly
on Monday that more than 5,400 people
were killed last year alone.

The No. 7 Chipola Lady Indi-
ans swept through four straight
games in Gulf Shores, Ala., over
the weekend to improve their
winning streak to six straight.
The Lady Indians (11-1) won
the games over Pearl River, Mid-
dle Georgia, Gordon, and Ala-
bama Southern by a combined
score of 56-3.
Chipola used a 12-run second
innings in the first game Satur-
day against Pearl River, and add-
ed six more in the third to win
the game in five innings.
Chelsey Steedley had a mon-
ster day for the Lady Indians, go-
ing 3 for 3 with eight RBI and four
runs scored, and had a two-RBI
double and a three-RBI triple all
in the second inning.
The sophomore Steedley add-
ed another bases loaded triple in
the third to make it a 18-0 lead,
with an RBI single by Eva Voort-
man rounding out the scoring in
the 19-0 win.
Ebony Wright also had three
hits and,three runs scored for
Chipola, with Michelle Hester
started and pitching four shut-
out innings in the circle to get
the win.
Chipola then took a 17-1 win
over Middle Georgia, as Steedley
stayed red hot with a 4 for 5 effort
with two runs and three more
runs driven in.
Lindsey Hamlin was 2 for 3
with a home run and three RBI
for the Lady Indians, with Mya
Anderson, Jasmine Tanksley, and
Stephanie Garrels all adding two
hits each.
Voortman started and pitched
a five inning, five hit shutout to
get the win, striking out seven
and walking no one.

Indians host Raiders in search of fourth straight win


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Chipola Indians will get their third
chance to take a victory over the North-
west Florida State Raiders when they
play host the nation's No. 2 team tonight
at 7:30 p.m.
Northwest Florida State (23-1 overall,
8-1 in the Panhandle Conference) can
all but clinch the Panhandle Conference
title with a win tonight, but the game will
have much bigger consequences win or
lose for the Indians (21-5, 5-4), who are
trying to keep pace with 5-3 Pensacola


State for second place in the league.
The top two finishers in the Panhandle
earn trips to the state tournament.
Chipola lost its previous two meeting
with the Raiders, falling 69-58 on Jan.
10 in Marianna, and 63-55 on Jan. 28 in
Niceville.
But the Indians have won three straight
since that last defeat and four of five
overall to climb out of a 1-3 hole and
back into the postseason mix.
A Chipola win tonight would put all the
pressure back on Pensacola State, which
plays Gulf Coast State in Panama City on


Wednesday, while a loss would leave the
Indians hoping that the Pirates suffered
at least one more loss before the two
clubs meet for the third time on Feb. 22
in Pensacola.
"Obviously, Northwest is coming in
here as the No. 2 team in the country, and
we're 0-2 against them," Indians coach
Jake Headrick said Monday. "We've just
got to be ready and realize how big of a
game it is and how good of a team they
are. The last time we played them, I

The Marianna Lady
Bulldogs dropped to 0-2
to start the season with a
10-7 loss to Liberty Coun-
ty on Thursday night in
the home debut for MHS.
Marianna, which was
blanked 10-0 by Chiles in
the season opener Tues-
day in Tallahassee, fell be-
hind 4-0 Thursday before
rallying with three runs in
the bottom of the second.
The Lady 'Dawgs tied it
up with a run in the third,
and went ahead 6-4 with
a run in the bottom of the
fifth.
But Liberty County an-
swered with three runs in
the sixth and two more in
the seventh to pull away
for the victory.
Madison Dean started
and went all seven in-
nings to take the loss for
MHS, but the junior only


surrendered four hits, as
the Lady Bulldogs were
victimized by nine field-
ing errors on the night.
Marianna actually out-
hit Liberty with nine base
hits for the game, with
Reagan Oliver leading the
way with three.
Whitney Lipford had
two hits and two RBI,
while Linsey Basford and
Madison Gullett each had
a hit and an RBI for MHS.

Lady Pirates score 15 straight, roll to big win


BY DUSTIN KENT

After facing an early four-
run deficit, the Sneads
Lady Pirates scored 15 un-
answered runs to take a
15-4 home victory over the
Blountstown Lady Tigers
on Thursday night in their
regular season opener.
Amber Avriett started in
the circle for Sneads and
walked the lead off batter,
then gave up four consec-
utive one-out hits to allow
Blountstown to take a 4-0
lead.
But the junior pitcher


settled down and kept
Blountstown off the board
for the next five innings to
set the table for a Sneads
rally.
The' Lady Pirates an-
swered with a run in the
bottom of the first, and
then exploded for seven in
the fourth, four in the fifth,
and three more in the sixth
to end the game on the
mercy rule.
Eleha Weiss had, three
hits and three RBI to lead
Sneads offensively, while
Cambraige Chason and
Shelby Byler each had two


hits and twb RBI.
Brandy Strickland also
had two hits for the Lady
Pirates.
After the rocky start Avri-
ett only gave up three hits
over the final five innings
of the game, and ended the
night with 12 strikeouts
and two walks.
"She got off to a slow
start, but once she got her
rhythm, she was very ef-
fective," Sneads coach Kel-
vin Johnson said of Avriett.
"I thought we played pretty
well as a team. We could've
hit the panic button after


the way we started, but we
kept chipping away, stayed
relaxed, and started hit-
ting the ball well. This is a
young team, so that was
encouraging to see them
face a little adversity and
handle it well. I was proud
of them."
Sneads returns to action
Tuesday night for a big
road test against Chipley
at 4 and 6 p.m.
"Chipley's always got
a real good team, so this
will be a good test early on
to see how good we are,"
Johnson said.

Florida Marlins

Manager Guillen likes look of Marlins' makeover
The Associated Press
The Associated Press : d.' ':;..oo 1


MIAMI Ozzie Guillen says Han-
ley Ramirez is reluctant, Carlos Zam-
brano is rejuvenated and the Miami
Marlins' much-maligned uniforms
are redeemable.
"They lookbad," Guillen said Mon-
day. "But if we win, those are going to
be the best uniforms in the game."
With spring training a week away,
Guillen spoke at the Marlins' me-
dia day about the team's offseason
makeover, which included new col-
ors, a name change and a spending
spree as the franchise moves into.
a new ballpark. Among the acqui-
sitions were manager Guillen and
former All-Star pitcher Zambrano,
two ex-Chicagoans in the market for
a fresh start, along with All-Star free
agents Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and
Heath Bell. When asked if Ramirez
has embraced his move to third base
so Reyes can play shortstop, Guillen
said no.
."I don't think he's 100-percent on
board," Guillen said. "Not yet. I don't
expect him to be."
.Guillen said he has talked with
Ramirez only once since the signing
of Reyes. But he expects Ramirez to
accept the position switch once he
realizes it gives the Marlins their best
chance to win.
"This is Hanley's team," Guillen
said. "Those guys they brought from
outside are to help him to win the
championship. When you lose it's
not fun to come to the ballpark. That
happened to Hanley a lot."
The Marlins finished last in the
NL East in 2011 and haven't reached
the playoffs since 2003. But this year
they're expected to contend for a
postseason berth and make lots of
headlines.
The transformation of the Marlins'
profile is such that they'll be the focus
of Showtime's series "The Franchise"
this year, Major League Baseball said
Monday. Thanks in part to Ramirez,
the talkative Guillen and the com-
bative Zambrano, the program could
become a soap opera.
Zambrano wore out his welcome
with the Cubs feuding with team-
mates, management and umpires.

THEASSOCIATED PRESS.
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen speaks to members of the media Monday in
Miami.


The Marlins believe they can revive
his career by pairing him and fellow
Venezuelan Guillen.
"I have people in Venezuela bet-
ting to see when's the first time me
and Carlos are going to fight," Guil-
len said. "He did a lot of bad things
in Chicago. He was out of hand. He
was kind of like phony. But Carlos is
a great guy. He's healthy. He's hungry.
He's going to show people who Car-
los Zambrano is."
The historically thrifty Marlins
acquired Zambrano in a trade and
spent $191 million to sign Reyes,
Buehrle and Bell. They were spurned
in courtships with Cuban defec-
tor Yoenis Cespedes, who signed
Monday with the Oakland Athletics,
and with top free-agent prize Albert
Pujols.
"You don't land everybody you
want to land," president of baseball
operations Larry Beinfest said. "But
I think we've been aggressive. We're
really happy with the way the club
looks."
Beinfest said the team should be
fully healthy heading into spring
training. That includes ace Josh
Johnson, who has been throwing
off a mound after making only nine


going into the ninth, the
Gators added four runs
to put the game on ice
thanks to a solo home run
by Richard Paulino and a


starts in 2011 because of right shoul-
der inflammation.
"I feel great," Johnson said. "No
problems. I haven't really been sore
yet, and I've been letting it go."
If Johnson's healthy and Zambrano
takes advantage of his fresh start,
the rotation is set. The bullpen and
defense should be much-improved,
and the top of the order looks potent
with the speedy Reyes and Emilio
Bonifacio, followed by 2009 batting
champion Ramirez and precocious
slugger Mike Stanton.
The start of spring training is al-
ways a time for rosy predictions,
but this year the Marlins' optimism
seems justified.
"We made a big push to get really
good," first baseman Gaby Sanchez
said. "We should not only compete,
but be able to win the division. I feel
like every other team knows that,
too."
Guillen said he expects to win the
NL East, despite formidable com-
petition from the Phillies, Braves
and even the improved Nationals.
At the very least, his team should be
colorful and not just because of
those orange, blue, black and yellow
uniforms.

Malone pitching


shuts down Altha


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent
The Malone Tigers
baseball team picked up a
9-0 shut out over the Altha
Wildcats on Thursday
evening at Cottondale in
the Pre-Season Classic.
Starting on the mound
for the Tigers was Nick
Breeden, who went two
innings and gave up two
walks and a hit, but his
defense kept the Wildcats
from having a run cross
the plate.
Sneads transfer Garrett
Harris took the mound for
Malone in the third inning
and allowed one hit, no
walks, and no runs.
Brett Henry took over in
the fourth inning before
giving way to sophomore
Jonathan Sikes, who closed
out the game.
Neither Henry nor Sikes


gave up a hit or a walk in
their first outing of the
season.
Offensively, it was again
Harris and Sikes leading
the way, with both going 2
for 3 at the plate.
Robert Orshall was 1 for
3.
Following the game,
Tigers coachMaxHarkrider
said he was pleased having
that first win under his
belt.
"A win's a win, but we
got good effort from
our pitchers," he said.
"Between the four of
them, we gave up only
three hits. Garrett (Harris)
and Jonathan (Sikes) gave
up no walks. Everyone did
well."
Malone will open up the
regular season Tuesday
with a road game against
Seminole County, Ga.

foot-11 inch Joseph Uche-
bo, who missed the first
two games due to injury.
The three game win-
ning streak has coincided
with the return of Uchebo,
and Chipola is 4-0 overall
in league play with their
starting center in action.
Headrick said that Uche-
bo helps the team's depth,


we play well, we'll be fine.
We don't have to sit there
and hope to see what
happens in other games.
We've put ourselves in a
position where if we win
(tonight), we'll be in really
good shape."
The game will tip at 5:30
p.m.

Lady Indians "Play 4
Kay"
Tuesday's Chipola wom-
en's game will be a part of
the national "Play 4 Kay"
initiative to raise breast
cancer awareness and
money for the Kay Yow
Cancer Fund named for
the former North Carolina
State women's basketball
coach.
Fans are encouraged to
wear pink to the game,
and the law firm of Perry
& Young will be donat-


as well as its defensive
rebounding, an area in
which the Indians strug-
gled'in the two losses to
the Raiders.
"I think we've done a
good job of guarding them
for the first 25-30 seconds,
but we've gotten hurt on
second chance points,"
the coach said. "Against a
team like that, when you
make mistakes, they make
you pay for it. If you don't
do what you're supposed
to do against a good team,
they'll hurt you.
"We've just got to play
hard and limit mistakes.
If we do that, then we'll
have a chance to win this
game."
A loss wouldn't be a crip-
pling blow for the Indians,
who would still have a
great chance to finish sec-
ond by winning their final
two games.
Regardless, Headrick


to retire two of the first three batters
he faced.
After a Port St. Joe player reached
on an error, a groundout to second
ended the inning.
Marianna added three runs in the
third inning to go up 11-8.
Adam DeWitt went the final two
innings for Marianna, giving up two
runs on two hits, one walk, and one
hit batter.
Marianna added seven runs in the
final two innings to secure the win.
On the night, Middleton was the
offensive showcase going 4 for 4.
Mader was 1-for-1 with two walks,
Rooks 1-for-3, and Burch 1 for 3
with.a walk.
Hampton, Godwin, Elliott, Ma-
son Melvin, Meadows, Harrell all
recorded hits on the night.
Marianna will open the regular
season Tuesday against Liberty
County in Bristol.


said that his team couldn't
ask to be in a better posi-
tion in the standings given
the team's 1-3 start and the
injuries to the two lead-
ing scorers in Uchebo and
Jason Carter, whose knee
injury suffered in the first
conference game ended
his season.
"If you told me after the
first four games that we
would be in this situation
right now, I think any-
body would 'take it," he
said. "The last five games,
we've done our job. That's
the players finding ways
to win these games. That's
the bottom line. We've put
ourselves in a good situa-
tion, but we've got to find a
way these last three games
to do our job every posses-
sion and every minute.
"If we that, then we'll
give ourselves an.opportu-
nity. That's all you can ask
for right now."

Annie's Vailbox


Dear Readers: HappyValentine's Day to
one and all, along with our special good
wishes to the veterans in VA hospitals
around the country. And our particular
thanks to those readers who have taken
the time to send valentines, visit the vets
and volunteer atVA facilities. Bless each
and every one of you.

Dear Annie: "Sex Therapist" does not
need a refresher course. You are mistaken
when you say that the "vast majority" of
older women lose interest in sex.
The Harvard Women's Health Watch
newsletter reported that in a survey of
27,000 women enrolled in the Women's
Health Initiative (WHI), more than 60
percent of women in their 50s, 45 per-
cent of those in their 60s and 28 percent
of women in their 70s reported that they
were sexually active, and almost two-
thirds said they were happy with their
level of sexual activity. Of those who
were dissatisfied, more than half said
they would prefer having sex more often.
Even these numbers may be mislead-
ing, because when healthy women stop


having sex, it is not necessarily due to a
lack of libido. Often it's because they lack
a partner or because topical treatments
have not resolved the common problem
of vaginal dryness, which can cause pain
during intercourse.
CAROLE WADE, PH.D.

Dear Dr. Wade: We do not take issue with
the fact that post-rhenopausal women
can be interested in sex. In fact, we en-
courage it. We do, however, disagree with
"Sex Therapist's" comment that losing
interest is a myth.
We are delighted the study showed that
28 percent of women still have an active
libido into their 70s. But it is hardly a
myth that hormones are depleted as we
age, and many post-menopausal women
lose interest for a variety of reasons. Ac-
cording to our readers, those who have a
healthy sex life are generally using some
form of hormone replacement. We.need
to acknowledge this reality and not make
women feel freakish or inadequate if they
experience a drop in libido and
hormones are not an option.


Bridge
In this deal, the result is judged not by how North 2-14-12
the heart suit is played, but by how many tricks 4 J 6 4 3
are lost. How should South plan the play in six V 8 6 3 2
spades after West leads the club ace?
Note North's rebid in the auction. This showed 9
at least four-card spade support, but denied any Q
first-round control or second-round control. West East
South starts with 11 top tricks: seven spades, 4 5 4 2
one heart and three diamonds. At first glance, V K 7 4 VJ 10 9
he needs the heart finesse to win. However, 7 6 3 2 + J 10 8 4
there is a much better line, which always works A K 8 5 2 A J 10 9 6 3
when West has the club king but does not cost South
anything if East turns up with that card.
After ruffing the club ace and drawing trumps, 4 AK Q 10 9 8 7
South should take his three diamond winners, V A Q 5
discarding a club from the board. He then plays AK Q
a spade to dummy's jack and calls for the club --
queen, pitching his heart five. Here, West wins
and is endplayed. He must either lead a heart Dealer: South
into South's ace-queen or concede a ruff-and- Vulnerable: Both
sluff declarerr ruffs in the dummy and sluffs his South West North East
heart queen). 2 4 Pass 2 Pass
What would happen if East produced the club 2 Pass 44 Pass
king? He would be left on play, forced either to 6 Pass Pass Pass
shift to a heart, when South still gets home if
the finesse is winning, or to concede a fatal i A
ruff-and-sluff. Opening lead: L A

Horoscope
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) It's never a good day
to get involved in the fi-
nancial affairs of friends,
especially if you're asked to
play the role of a banker.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Guard against talk-
ing about important things
as if you've already accom-
plished them.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
There are two means of
thinking that could hold
you back: one is nursing
self-defeating thoughts
and the other is repeating a
mistake that you've made.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Don't pry too deeply into
a friend's personal affairs,
because you could uncover
something juicy that you
wouldn't be able to resist
telling others about.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Be extremely careful
about whom you choose
to go to for advice; some-
times the people you like
the most don't have all the
answers.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You should take care not
to jump to conclusions
when you don't have all the
facts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
There's a good possibil-
ity that you will be prone
to taking risks both finan-
cially and otherwise, just
because you want a long
shot to pan out.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Neither you nor your
mate are likely to be very
good at keeping promises
made to one another.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Avoid participating in of-
fice gossip. Word might get
back to the boss'that you're
the big mouth who is caus-
ing all the discontent.
SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)
Any carelessness on your
part, such as leaving things
unattended or out in the
open, will lead to a loss.
SAGITTARIUS '(Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) There's a chance
that you could be kind
to undeserving people in
hopes of changing them,
while being tight with
those who are generous.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Although usually you
base your evaluations on
logic and practicality, you
might ignore these factors
and go with what suits you
at the moment.

NFL Notebook



Tampa Bay hires former UNC coach Davis


The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. The
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
have hired former North
Carolina head coach
Butch Davis as a "special
assistant" to new head
coach Greg Schiano.
The team announced
the hire Monday, say-
ing Davis would "advise
Schiano in a wide range
of football aspects." In a
statement, Schiano called
Davis a friend and mentor
going back to the time
when Schiano worked on
Davis' staff at Miami.
Davis was fired from
UNC just before training
camp last season amid
the NCAA investigation
of improper benefits and
academic misconduct
within the Tar Heels foot-
ball program.


Davis was never cited for
or linked to any violation
during the investigation.
Chancellor Holden Thorp
said he made the change
because of cumulative
damage done to the
university's reputation. At
the time, Thorp said Davis
could receive about $2.7
million in contractual ob-
ligations that run through
2015.
He received $933,500 of
the buyout by the end of
2011. He was also sched-
uled to receive three an-
nual payments of $590,000
starting next January,
though those payments
would be reduced by any
compensation he received
for coaching a college or
pro team.
It's unclear whether his
new role as a special as-
sistant to Schiano would


trigger that clause.
Davis previously had
been an assistant to
Jimmy Johnson with the
Dallas Cowboys and was
head coach of the Cleve-
land Browns. He took over
at North Carolina before
the 2007 season.
In all, 14 Tar Heels
missed at least one game
and seven were forced
to sit the entire season
in 2010. The school has
already issued its own
penalties by vacating all 16
wins from 2008 and 2009,
reducing scholarships
and putting the football
program on probation.
The school appeared be-
fore the NCAA infractions
committee in late October.
The NCAA could issue a
ruling any day on whether
it will impose additional
penalties.


Jags bring in former
Cards exec Lamping
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
- The Jacksonville Jaguars
have hired former St.
Louis Cardinals executive
Mark Lamping as team
president.
Lamping, who spent the
last four years as presi-
dent and CEO of MetLife
Stadium in New Jersey,
will be in charge of all
non-football facets of the
organization.
He will report directly to
owner Shahid Khan.
Khan called the hiring "a
very important and excit-
ing development in the
rebirth" of the franchise.
A St. Louis native,
Lamping served An-
heuser-Busch in a variety
of capacities from 1981 to
1993.


In 1994, he was named
president of the Cardi-
nals and was responsible
for business and facility
operations.
Recently, Lamping
oversaw development,
construction and opera-
tion of the new Meadow-
lands stadium.
He helped bring Super
Bowl XLVIII to MetLife
Stadium in 2014.

Former receiver
Fredie Solomon dies
SAN FRANCISCO
- Freddie Solomon, the
former Miami Dolphins
and 49ers wide receiver
who became known as
"Fabulous Freddie" and
committed himself to
community service, has
died. He was 59.
The 49ers announced


the passing of Solomon,
who lived in Florida and
had battled cancer over
the past year. He played
on the first of the fran-
chise's four Super Bowl
championship teams in
the 1980s during an 11-
year NFL career.
"The 49ers lost a mem-
ber of our family today.
We'll miss you, Freddie
Solomon," CEO Jed York
posted on his Twitter ac-
count on Monday.
The Dolphins selected
Solomon in the second
round of the 1975 draft
out of the University of
Tampa.
He spent his first three
NFL seasons with Miami
and his final eight in San
Francisco, finishing with
371 receptions for 5,846
yards and 48 touchdowns
in 371 games.

Gators pick O-line coach Davis to replace Verducci


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Offen-
sive line coach Frank Verducci is
out after one season at Florida,
replaced by Tim Davis.
Verducci, a longtime NFL as-
sistant, left to pursue other inter-
ests. Verducci has not spent more
than two years at any coaching
spot since 1998.
His brief stint in Gainesville
was far from impressive. Florida's
offensive line struggled to open
holes in the running game and to
protect quarterback John Brant-
ley on a consistent basis.
The result was a 7-6 record and
the program's worst offense in
more than two decades.
It's unclear when Verducci


left the program, but coach Will
Muschamp wasted little time re-
placing him.
Davis has 25 years of experi-
ence, including serving as offen-
sive line coach at his alma mater,
Utah, last season.
Before that, he spent two years
as Minnesota's offensive line
coach and worked alongside
current Florida tight ends coach
Derek Lewis.
Davis also spent a year as di-
rector of player personnel under
Nick Saban at Alabama (2008)
and worked with Florida coach
Will Muschamp with the NFL's
Miami Dolphins (2005-06).
. He also has coaching stints
at Southern Cal (2002-04),
Wisconsin (1997-2001), Utah


"Tim is a perfetfitfor our program.... He understands the
values that we put on the line ofscrimmage andhe wiU help us
get where we want to be in thatposition."
Will Muschamp,
Florida coach


(1990-96), Idaho State (1989)
and Walla Walla Community
College (1988).
"Tim is a perfect fit for our pro-
gram. He has a history of-coach-
,ing in a pro-style offense -and
shares the same program phi-
losophies," Muschamp said in a
statement.
"It will be a seamless transi-
tion for our players and staff. He
worked with Brian White at Wis-
consin, Derek Lewis at Minneso-


ta, and Dan Quinn and I worked
with him at the Miami Dolphins.
He understands the values that
we put on the line of scrimmage
and he will help us get where we
want to be at that position."
Florida returns all five starters
on the offensive line and signed
two of the top recruits in the
country at the position.
Offensive tackle D.J. Humphries
and guard Jessamen Dunker al-
ready are enrolled in school and


could compete for starting spots
in spring practice.
"I'm excited to work with Coach
Muschamp again and join the
Florida football program," Davis
said.
"Like most assistant coaches,
I've been on a number of coach-
ing staffs and usually there is a
transition period when you join
a new staff. I don't look at this
as joining a new staff, having
worked with Coach Muschamp,
Dan Quinn, Brian White\ and
Derek Lewis in the past. I under-
stand the shared philosophies of
the staff."
After ranking 105th in total
offense last season, the Ga-
tors will have two new offensive
assistants.
