Men arrested in connection with daytime burglaries


BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com

Two Quincy men were arrested
in connection with the daytime
burglaries that occurred in the
Marianna and Grand Ridge areas
on Feb. 1, according to a press


release from the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office.
Xavier Darcus Parks, 18, and
Keldrick Trenaud Wilson, 17,
were arrested Wednesday and
charged with grand theft and
burglary of a dwelling, with fur-
ther charges anticipated. They


are currently incarcerated in the
Gadsden County Jail awaiting
first appearance before being
transported to Jackson County.
These daytime burglar-
ies were not only occurring
in Jackson County, but also in
Gadsden, Calhoun and Liberty


counties and Decatur County,
Ga. The burglars would force
open a home's door and take jew-
elry, electronics and firearms.
Officers from the various coun-
ties were surveying suspects and
suspect vehicles on Wednesday.
Officers had stopped a green


Honda in Chattahoochee, when
they found jewelry, firearms and
other items matching descrip-
tions of stolen items in the re-
cent burglaries. After searching
the vehicle, several stolen items
from residential burglaries in
Jackson County were found.

Prison privatization got a thumbs-
down vote Tuesday from the senator
who represents Jackson
County now in the state
legislature and also from
the one who could take
over the district Jackson
County will occupy if the
current Senate redistrict-
Evers ing plan stands.
If he is re-elected to the
Senate in the mid-term election made
necessary by redistricting, Sen. Greg

donates TV,

citizens center
BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com
Matt White was reading the Jackson
County Floridan at his office at Chipola
College on Wednesday when an article
caught his eye. The network coordina-
tor read about the Jackson County Se-
nior Citizens Center's stolen TV and
Nintendo Wii game system and had an
idea.
Matt and his wife, Jennifer, had sever-.
al TVs and an extra Wii they didn't use.-
After a quick call to his wife, Matt called
the center and asked if he could not
only donate but set up the electronics.
"I was looking to get rid of a TV arid
they were needing one," Matt said. "It
was meant to be."
Susan Melvin, the activities coordina-
tor fdr the center, said no one expected
such a quick response. After speaking
to Matt, the center heard from another
generous local, who they turned down.

LEIRRNING TO GIVE BACK


Marianna FAA students



give produce to food banks


Marianna High School ninth-grade agriculture students pick their way through a patch of greens in the school's land lab Wednesday.


$2,000 worth of produce donated
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com
The Marianna High School agricultural depart-
ment and FFA are donating their produce to Chipola
Family Ministries and other local food banks.
"It's just to help the community out," said Brian
Solger, MHStagriculture teacher. "I don't think the
kids have ever done something like this before."
Students are given rows to grow produce with their
partners as a part of their Supervised Agricultural Ex-
perience Program, which aims to have students learn
concepts by doing them. Students plant, maintain
and harvest their gardens.
There are about 160 students involved with the gar-
dens and between 50 to 60 gardens. They picked and
donated mustard, turnips and collards in the last few
weeks.
"There's a big demand for food in the community
right now," Solger said.
Students are now preparing for their spring gar-
dens. Solger said they'll begin picking again in April.
They hope to donate about $2,000 worth of produce.
"The Jackson County School System and
Marianna High School are giving back to the
community," Solger said.

County settles with Department of Health


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Jackson County attorney
Frank Baker has negoti-
ated a $1,500 settlement
with a state agency over a
fine that could have cost
the county thousands of
dollars more than it did.
The Department of
Health had cited the coun-
ty for failing to file for its
advanced life support li-
cense renewal on time,
and then operating the
ALS ambulance for three
days while it was expired.
Alleging that the county
had violated statutory
regulations in its tardiness,


the agency filed an ad-
ministrative complaint in
the matter, citing the fact
that the county could be'
charged $1,000 per day for
the violations.
The county filed for the
renewal a month late,
meaning the department
could have demanded at
least $30,000, the agency
pointed out in a proposed
settlement agreement.
Instead, the agency ini-
tially wanted $3,300. Baker
further negotiated the fig-
ure to $1,500, which the
county agreed Tuesday to
pay.
The license renewal was
filed on April 19, 2011, the


day it was set to expire. The
renewal petition was due
at least a month before
the expiration date. The
renewal was approved on
April 22.
The county continued
to operate as an ALS for
the days between the ex-
piration of the old and the
issuance of the new, the
Department of Health al-
leged. The county did not
mount any defense against
the allegation.
Jackson County Fire Res-
cue Chief Tony Wesley, in
communications with the
Department of Health,
took full responsibility for
being late, according to


County Administrator Ted
Lakey. According to Lakey,
Wesley had received his
first notice of the problem
in July 2011.
Wesley, however, did not
inform the administrator
of the issue until January
of this year when the first
settlement agreement was
sent to Wesley's office by
the Department of Health.
Wesley sent Lakey a letter
on Jan. 19 outlining the
problem
For his delay in sharing
the information, Wesley
received a "Letter of Coun-
seling" from Lakey on Feb.
10.
"In a letter dated Jan. 19,


2012, you informed me of
a Jackson County case...
with the Florida Depart-
ment of Health," Lakey
wrote. "In your letter you
informed me of a situa-
tion in which you forgot to
renew the Jackson County
Fire Rescue EMS license.
You were made aware of
this situation in early April
of 2011. You tried to han-
dle this on your own, but
the renledy was not ac-
ceptable to the state. I am
disappointed that you did
not come to me in regards
to this situation until Jan.
2012. Perhaps if you had
passed this information
on earlier to me, we could


have worked together to
resolve the issue in a more
timely manner. The county
has now been obligated to
pay a sum of money to the
State when it could have
perhaps been prevented.
You are receiving this letter
of counseling due to your
lack of passing on informa-
tion to me so that we could
have perhaps worked to-
gether to solve the problem
without having incurred a
penalty. I want to admon-
ish you to be diligent in
passing information along
in the future when neces-
sary to help solve issues
rather than to let them lin-
ger," Lakey concluded.

Senate panel passes nearly $71billion budget


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Senate 'on Wednesday charged
ahead with a nearly $71 billion bud-
get, despite complaints from uni-
versity students, hospital lobbyists
and even some Republicans in the
House about some of the decisions
contained in the spending plan.
The Senate Budget Committee
voted unanimously for the budget
proposal after a marathon all-day
session that focused primarily on
the deep cuts the budget has in
store for the state's 11 public uni-
versities. The legislation also cuts
spending on hospitals, limits emer-
gency room visits for poor patients,
and eliminates thousands of state
worker jobs.
"It's a tough budget," said Sen.'
John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine. "It
was a tough budget last year and it's
even'tougher this year."
Some senators wound up engag-
ing in a back-and-forth with stu-
dents from the University of South
Florida, who were angered at what
they saw as cuts that targeted their
school because of an ongoing feud
over the fate of a branch campus
in Lakeland. Sen. J.D. Alexander,
R-Lake Wales and Senate budget
chief, has been pushing hard to turn
loose the branch and transform it
into the state's newest stand-alone
university.
The state panel that oversees the


state university system voted last
year for guidelines the branch cam-
pus must meet to win its indepen-
dence but the Senate has a stand-
alone bill that would mandate the
creation of Florida Polytechnic
University.
"In my view of the world, this is a
divorce that needs to happen," Alex-
ander said.
The proposed Senate budget cuts
state funding for all universities
by $400 million, but it hits some
schools, including USF, harder
based on the size of existing bud-
get reserves. Alexander and other
top Republicans contended that
this would be a one-year reduction
in funding that would enable the
Senate to avoid deeper cuts in other
parts of the budget.
There were terse moments be-
tween Tampa Bay senators and oth-
er Republicans over the USF budget
cuts with Sen. Jim Norman, R-Tam-
pa, accusing some of his fellow Re-
publicans of balancing the budget
on the backs of students.
Senators did make one key change
late in the day in an effort to short-
circuit some of the criticism. They
removed a provision from a bill
to freeze $25 million in money for
USF until university administrators
took the legal steps to create Florida
Polytechnic.
But it's clear that the haggling over
money for state universities could
become a major sticking point in


the remaining weeks of the session.
Lawmakers have until early March
to pass a new budget that will cover
state spending from July 2012 to
June 2013.
The House has already passed its
proposed 2012 budget and does not
include anywhere near the same
level of cuts for state universities.
Rep. Will Weatherford, R-Wesley
Chapel and the next House speaker,
said he would not even 'consider' a
bill creating a 12th,state university
at a time when deep cuts are being
proposed for USE
"The House feels very strongly that
universities should be treated equal-
ly," Weatherford said. "We shouldn't
single any one of them out and treat
them differently when it comes to
funding. We're going to hold on very
strong to that position."
The House and Senate budgets
differ in other key ways, including
overall amounts.
The House budget (HB 5001) is
about $1.6 billion less because the
Senate wants budget control over
two local expressway authorities.
The Senate budget (SB 7050) which
totals nearly $70.8 billion boosts
funding for road-building higher
while also putting in place cuts for
substance abuse programs.
SThe House mandates an eight per-
cent tuition hike for college students
and at least that much for univer-
sity students. The Senate only has a
three percent increase for students.


Electric cigarette explodes inman's mouth


The Associated Press

PENSACOLA A Flori-
da man trying to kick the
smoking habit was -puff-
ing on an electronic ciga-
rette when a faulty battery
caused it to explode in his
mouth, taking out some of
his front teeth and a chunk
of his tongue and severely
burning his face, fire offi-
cials said Wednesday.
"The best analogy is like
it was trying to hold a bot-
tle rocket in your mouth
when it went off," said Jo-
seph Parker, division chief
for the North Bay Fire De-
partment. "The battery
flew out of the tube and
set the closet on fire."
Fire Chief Joseph
Miller said the victim


contacted the department
on Wednesday to thank
firefighters and told them
he was recovering at a
hospital in Mobile, Ala.,
and anticipated being
released later in the day.
Officials have not pub-
licly identified him, citing
department policy. But a
Facebook page under the
name of 57-year-old Tom
Holloway of Niceville was
filled with well-wishers
commenting on the injury
and database searches
matched his address on
the fire report with his
name.
Holloway was in his of-
fice at home when the
device exploded, leaving
behind burned carpet,
chair cushions, pictures

and office equipment.
A scorched battery case
found on a piece of melted
carpet appears to be one
for a cigar-sized device,
the report said. Those in
the house with him rushed
to his aid in the smoke-
filled room and tried to
put the fire out with salt,
the report said.
Holloway and his family
members didn't immedi-
ately answer The Associ-
ated Press' requests for
interviews.
Investigators do not
know the brand of ciga-
rette, type of battery or age
of the device, Parker said.
It appears the battery was
rechargeable lithium be-
cause a recharging station
and other batteries were


in the room, he said. Park-
er has forwarded informa-
tion about the blaze to
the fire marshal's office to
include in any databases
on the devices. But Parker
said he has yet to hear of
any similar instances.
Holloway agreed to
let firefighters take the
burned case and other,
undamaged ones with
them as examples for re-
porting to a national da-
tabase, according to the
report. But Holloway has
asked for the burned case
back.
Parker said it could be
used as evidence in any
litigation, although Hollo-
way did not indicate why
he wanted ,it returned,
Parker said.

Upcoming local farming seminars announced


From staff reports

*The local extension office is put-
' ting on a couple of seminars with
information to help them work
through some issues they are fac-
ing and may face later this year.
Here are the seminars and dates
with explanations of each one:
NW FL Beef Conference
- February 22
The 27th annualNprthwestFlor-
ida Beef Conference and Trade
Show will be held on Wednesday,
Feb. 22, at the Jackson County
Agriculture Conference Center,
located at 2741 Pennsylvania Ave.
in Marianna. The' event begins
with registration and the Trade
Show opens at 7:30 a.m. There is a
$5 per person registration fee for
the event.
The program begins at 8:15 a.m.
and ends with lunch. Following
lunch there will be an optional
Cool Season Variety Tour, to be
held at the North Florida Research
and Education Center Agronomy
Unit north of Marianna. The fo-
cus of the Beef Conference this


year will be making the most of
new opportunities.
Jackson County Extension Di-
rector Doug Mayo said, "2012
promises to be a very interesting
year in the cattle business. Cattle
producers should get the high-
est prices they have ever received
when they market their cattle this
year. Because of increased costs;
however, they will also have the
greatest risk because of the in-,
vestment in those cattle."
For these reasons, Dr. Walt Pre-
vatt, Auburn University Livestock
Economist, was chosen to be the
keynote speaker. He will pro-
vide a cattle market outlook for
2012 and beyond, and also share
ideas for managing cow costs.
Kevan Tucker, Clarke County Ala-
bama Extension Coordinator, will
share ideas on how to capitalize
on these higher market prices.
Nicholas DiLorenzo, University of
Florida Beef Nutrition Specialist,
will discuss nutrition manage-
ment, and Mayo will share ideas
on how to increase herd perfor-
mance, to help ranchers improve
the efficiency of their operations.


The Beef Conference also fea-
tures a trade show of businesses
that offer goods and services to
cattle producers in the region.
Time will be provided to visit with
the company representatives to
learn about new products and
suggestions they have for beef
cattle operations.
For more information on the
Beef Conference, contact Mayo at
850-482-9620, or on the Internet:

Row Crop Short Course
- March 1
The Row Crop Short Course and
Trade Show will be held on Thurs-
day, March 1, at the Jackson Coun-
ty Agriculture Conference Center,
located at 2741 Pennsylvania Ave.
in Marianna. Registration and the
Trade Show will open at 7:30 a.m.
with the program starting at 8
a.m. The event will conclude with
lunch. In previous years, cotton
and peanut educational meetings
were held separately, but will be
combined into one training event
for 2012.
The focus of the meeting will


be to update peanut and cotton-
famers with information on va-
riety selection, weed and disease
management, fertilization, and
improved efficiency with variable
rate application.
Specific topics of interest this
year will be managing white mold
in peanuts, palmer amaranth
control in cotton and peanuts,
the 2012 market outlook for pea-
nuts, cotton, corn and soybeans,
and also advice on what to do in
the event of a chemical spill on
the farm. One Private Ag, and one
CORE CEU will be offered for li-
censed Restricted Use Pesticide
Applicators.
The Short Course will also fea-
ture a trade show of businesses
that offer goods and services to
farmers in the region. Time will be
provided to visit with the compa-
ny representatives to learn about
new products and suggestions
they have for row crop farms. For

Crop Short Course, contact Doug

Storms headed to the area this weekend


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Showers and thunder-
storms will hit the Pan-
handle starting today and
last most of the weekend.
Kelly Godsey, a meteo-
rologist with the National
Weather Service in Talla-
hassee, said storm systems
will develop in the Gulf of
Mexico and move east-
ward due to an upper level
disturbance.
The current cold front
will move out of the area,
allowing warm, moist
tropical air in. This has the
potential to further fuel the
storms. Saturday in partic-
ular is predicted to have a
number of storms, Godsey
said. There's a potential for

Evers, a Republican, said
he and Jackson County's
current Democratic Sena-

them when it came time
to vote. And it was a close
call. The proposal to priva-

"It's a good time for folks,
especially if they have any
plans this weekend, to be
mindful, of the weather,"
Godsey said.
Meteorologists are still
unsure when and where
the mostsevere storms will
come. Godsey said there a
number of different tracks
the storms could follow.
Officials should know
where they're headed by
Friday, he said;
"Those kinds of details
are difficult to predict

Godsey said. "There's not

was most definitely across
the aisles," Evers said.
Montford's current dis-
trict and his own are very
similar, Evers said, with
similar issues to think
about.
"Senator Montford has
a lot of prisons in his dis-
trict, and I have 16 prisons
and work camps in mine,
with approximately 3,000
correctional officers and
some 700 support per-
sonnel. Montford has the
same or a little more. He
and I were singing from
the same sheet of music.
I appreciate him and his

of his district, I truly do,
and I think we had some

said residents should stay
informed on the systems.
The weather service pre-
dicts the stormy weather

It could get a bit cooler,


Evers said he was wor-
ried that, if the prisons
were privatized down
south, that jobs in pris-
ons to the north might be
open to "bumping" by se-
nior employees as the De-
partment of Corrections
tried to make places for
the- people who wouldn't
be absorbed by a private
company taking over the
prison.
"I think we would
have seen, in a matter of
months, people in our
community readily los-
ing their jobs as people
from the privatized pris-
ons have to move to keep
a job and bumping other

Evers said he also voted
against privatization for
philosophical reasons.
"I know that some ser-
vices maybe can be priva-
tized," Evers said. "Is food
service one of those? May-
be. But security and safe-
ty? No, not in my opinion.
I believe there are certain
things that government is
still responsible for doing
itself. I think safety and se-
curity are things you just
can't outsource."
Evers said he also didn't
believe the state would
realize enough savings
in privatizing, and didn't

seen fluctuate more than

out of the area and mov-
ing off the local tax rolls,"
he said. "We need to think
more about the fallout."

Farmers
From Page 1A

numbers are still relative-
ly high and should keep
farmers interested.
At the same time, pea-
nuts continue to draw top
prices and many farm-
ers will be rotating into it
from cotton to take advan-
tage. There are other good
reasons to switch after a
couple of years growing
the same crop on the same
field.
Rotation is necessary
because,' without it, pests
that favor a certain plant
have more time to build up
on the land and potentially
destroy the crops.
The change-up also helps
the soil recover from deple-
tion of nutrients favored by
various plants. While cot-
ton may draw more heav-
ily upon one resource, pea-
nuts may need less of that
and more of something
else in more plentiful sup-
ply because cotton didn't
need as much of the same
nutrient.
While cotton and pea-
nut farmers are looking
at a good forecast, cattle
farmers may have the best
forecast they've seen in
decades.
Prices are higher for cows
than they've been in a long
while, and may even be
at record levels. Droughts
in New Mexico, Texas and
Oklahoma caused live-
stock producers there to
cull their herds early and
the result is a cow shortage
not seen since the early
1950s. Buyer competition
is driving prices to a level
perhaps unseen.
Last week, 500 pound
steers were selling at $1.75
a pound. While prices have
been climbing above a
dollar for the past couple
of years, this is a believed
by many to be an unprec-
edented gain.
In addition to expected
high prices, some farmers
may also consider keeping
some heifers in hopes of
building up their herds, but
must also consider the fact
that buildup takes a couple
of years. Prices may not be
at these levels by then.
Meanwhile, the produc-
ers may well have been
paying higher costs of car-
ing for their animals. The
price of feed, fuel and oth-
er costs are on the upswing
as the prices rise.
Because farmers often.
find themselves operating
on the margins of profit
and loss, and with so many
uncertainties to think
about, they have much to
think about over the next
few weeks.

Defiant Iran claims major steps in nuclear fuel


The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran In defi-
ant swipes at its foes, Iran said
Wednesday it is dramatically
closer to mastering the produc-
tion of nuclear fuel even as the
U.S. weighs tougher pressures
and Tehran's suspected shadow
war with Israel brings probes far
beyond the Middle East.
Iran further struck back at the
West by indicating it was on the
verge of imposing a midwinter
fuel squeeze to Europe in retali-
ation for a looming boycott of
Iranian oil, but denied reports
earlier in the day that six nations
had already been cut off.
The uncompromising mes-
sages from Iran, however, came


with a counterpoint. The official
IRNA news agency said Iran's
top nuclear negotiator, Saeed
Jalili, told European Union for-
eign policy chief Catherine Ash-
ton that Iran is ready to return
to talks with the U.S. and other
world powers.
The dual strategy taking
nuclear steps while proposing
more talks has become a hall-
mark of Iran's dealings for years
and some critics have dismissed
it as a time-buying tactic.
The advances claimedWednes-
day could likely feed these
views.
In a live TV broadcast, Presi-
dent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
was shown overseeing what was
described as the first Iranian-


made fuel rod inserted into a re-
search reactor in northern Teh-
ran. Separately, the semiofficial
Fars agency reported that a "new
generation" of Iranian centri-
fuges used to enrich uranium
toward nuclear fuel had gone
into operation at the country's
main enrichment facility at Na-
tanz in central Iran.
In Washington, the assistant
secretary of state for Internation-
al Security and Nonproliferation,
Tom Countryman, dismissed the
Iranian claims of reaching a piv-
otal moment. "The announce-
ment today by Iran has much
more to do with political devel-
opments in.Iran than it has to do
with factual developments," he
said.


White House press secretary
Jay Carney said Iran's "defiant
acts" seek to "distract attention"
from the damage brought by in-
ternational sanctions.
Meanwhile, Iran is facing ma-
jor new international compli-
cations: Accusations of bring-
ing an apparent covert conflict
with Israel to points stretch-
ing from Thailand and India to
the former Soviet republic of
Georgia.
Officials in Israel ramped up al-
legations that Iran was linked to
international bomb plots, saying
magnetic "sticky" bombs found
in a Bangkok house rented by
Iranians were similar to devices
used against Israeli envoys in a
foiled attack in Georgia on Mon-


day and a blast in New Delhi that
injured four people, including a
diplomat's wife.
"In recent days, Iran's terror
operations are being laid bare
for all," said Israeli Prime Min-
ister Benjamin Netanyahu, who
convened his security cabinet.
It included discussions about
"preventive measures" against
Iranian threats, said a statement
from Netanyahu's office that did
not elaborate.
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokes-
man, Ramin Mehmanparast,
called the allegations "base-
less" and an attempt to push
"conspiracy" theories to dis-
credit Iran with its Asian part-
ners, including major oil buyer
India.


As many as 356 killed



in Honduras prison fire


The Associated Press

TEGUCIGALPA, Hondu-
ras A fire started by an
inmate tore through an
aging and severely over-
crowded Honduran pris-
on, burning and suffocat-
ing inmates in their locked
cells and killing as many
as 356 people in one of the
world's deadliest prison
fires in a century, authori-
ties saidWednesday.
The local governor, a for-
mer prison employee, told
reporters that an inmate
called her moments before
the fire and said he was
going to set the 1940s-era
facility on fire and kill ev-
eryone inside.
Survivors told investiga-
tors that an unidentified
inmate screamed "We will
all die here!" as he lit fire to
his bedding late Tuesday
night in the prison in the
central town of Comay-
agua. The lockup housed
people convicted of seri-
ous crimes such as homi-
cide and armed robbery.
The blaze spread within
minutes, killing about 100
inmates in their cells as
firefighters struggled to
find'officials who had keys,
Comayagua fire depart-
ment spokesman Josue
Garcia said. Prisons in the
SU.S. and other more devel-
oped nations have locks
that can be released auto-
matically in an emergency.
"We couldn't get them
out because we didn't have
the keys and couldn't find
the guards who had them,"
Garcia said.
Six drowned after trying
to seek refuge in a water
tank inside the prison.
Other prisoners were set
free by guards but died
from the flames or smoke
as they tried to flee into
the fields'surrounding the
facility, where prisoners
grow corn and beans on
a state-run farm for sale
in the neighboring town.
Rescuers carried shirtless,
semi-conscious prisoners
from the facility by their
arms and legs. One hauled
a victim away from the fire
by piggyback.
"I saw the smoke from
cell block 6 and it spread
throughout the prison,"
said Ever Lopez, 24, who
was serving time for homi-
cide. "The other prisoners
and I broke through the
roof with our bare hands
and fled. Thank God I'm
alive."
Paola Castro, the gover-
nor of Comayagua state,
said at a press conference
that she had received a call
several minutes before the
first reports of a fire from
a prisoner whom she did
not name, who told her
that "I will set this place on
fire and we are all going to
die!"
Officials have long had
little control of conditions
inside many Honduran
prisons, where inmates
have largely unfettered ac-
cess to mobile phones and
other contraband. A wom-
an visiting her partner was
among the victims.
Castro once worked as a
secretary at the prison and
is known by many inmates.
She said she called the Red

Soldiers run during clashes with the relatives of inmates after
a deadly prison fire in Comayagua, Honduras, 90 miles north of
the capital of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, early Wednesday.


Cross and firefighters im-
mediately to alert them of
the danger.
Two employees of a hotel
near the prison told The
Associated Press that fire-
fighters took between 20

and by then the flames had


nearly subsided. The local
fire chief said his men were
there within 10 minutes.
A prisoner identified as

something was wrong
when he heard a scream of

Furious finish propels Raiders by Indians


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 2 Northwest Florida
State Raiders went on a 12-2 run
to close the game to pull out a
67-58 road win over the Chipola
Indians on Tuesday night and
clinch at least a share of the Pan-
handle Conference title.
The Raiders (24-1) moved to 9-
1 in conference play, two games
up in the loss column over 5-
3 Pensacola State, which was
scheduled to play Wednesday
night against Gulf Coast State.
Northwest clinched a spot in


the state tournament .and no
worse than a tie for first in the
league, though one more Raiders
win or one more Pirates loss will
give Northwest the title outright.
"I told the team that to be spe-
cial you had to win games like
this on the road," Raiders coach
Steve Forbes said after the game.
"This is what you play for, to be
a part of meaningful games like
this. We've put ourselves in a
position to play in meaningful
games by the success we've sus-
tained throughout the year."
Northwest has been


remarkably consistent this sea-
son, losing just once at Pensac-
ola State in overtime.
A big part of that success has
been the play of sophomore
point guard Chris Jones, who
took over late Tuesday night
in a performance that could
solidify his bid for Panhandle
Conference Player of the Year.
Leading by just one with 3:30
to play, Jones scored on a 3-point
play off of a backdoor cut to the
rim to give the Raiders a 60-56
lead.
After a defensive stop, Jones


then raced back up the court
and found a cutting Neiko Hunt-
er with a beautiful pass for a re-
verse lay-up to push the lead to
six with 2:15 to play.
Chipola (21-6) which fell to
5-5 in the conference could
get no closer, with a thunderous
left-handed dunk by the Raiders'
Trency Jackson providing the ex-
clamation point with a minute
to play.
Jones finished with 15 points
and six assists, while committing

Lady Pirates

crush Chipley

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Sneads Lady Pirates
notched a big early season vic-
tory Tuesday night in Chipley,
routing the Lady Tigers 15-4 in
five innings behind 16 hits off
of Chipley's senior ace Chelsea
Carter.
The win moved Sneads to 2-0
on the season and gave the Lady
Pirates 30 total runs in their sea-
son's first 10 innings of at-bats.
"In my five years of coaching,
that may have been the best
we've hit the ball since I've been
here," Lady Pirates coach Kelvin
Johnson said of Tuesday's out-
put. "We started off hitting and
we ended hitting. They weren't
seeing-eye singles either. They
were balls that would tear you up
if they hit you."
Sneads scored two runs in
the first inning, but Chipley an-
swered with three in the bottom
of the second to take the lead.
But the Lady Pirates blew it
open with seven runs. in the
third, followed by six more in
the fifth, to end the game on the
mercy rule.
Freshman Brooke Williams
had two doubles, four hits total,
and two RBIs to lead the way for
Sneads offensively, with Shelbi
Byler also having a big night go-
ing 3-for-3 with three RBIs.
Brandi Strickland had two hits
and two RBI as well, while Alay-
nah Weiss and Alex Maphis each
had two hits and an RBI for the
Lady Pirates.
"It was just a great night for us
offensively," Johnson said. "We
swung at good pitches and hit
the ball like we should. We only
had four strikeouts against a
very good pitcher, which was im-
pressive. It's a great thing to hit
the ball that well this early, but I
don't want the girls to get the big
head about it. You want to hit the
ball that way every night."
Amber Avriett started in the
circle and got her second win in'
as many games, giving up four
earned runs on 11 hits and two
walks, with five strikeouts.

MHS tries to extend

season against Jags

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Marianna Bulldogs will look to
extend their season for at least one more
round tonight when they play host to
the East Gadsden Jaguars in the Class 4A
Regional Quarterfinals at 7 p.m.
The Bulldogs (12-12) come into the
game on a high after winning the District
1 championship with a dominant 54-
39 victory over Pensacola Catholic on
Saturday.
Marianna will welcome in a Jaguars
(15-11) team that was handily beaten by
powerhouse Godby 55-37 in the District
2 title game, but Bulldogs coach Travis
Blanton said he knows fully the challenge
that his team will face tonight.
"Their district was a pretty strong dis-
trict," he said. "I think Florida High won
20 games, and Godby won even more
than that. Those other two made the dis-
trict a lot stronger, and (the Jaguars) play
all of those teams out of Tallahassee like
Leon and Rickards, so we know they've
played a tough schedule.
"They're very deserving of being in the
playoffs. They very well could've been a
No. 1 if Godby hadn't had such a great
team this year."
The Bulldogs and Jaguars met in the
first round of the 3A playoffs in 2010, with
Marianna winning 63-43 before falling to
Rickards in the regional semifinals.
Blanton said that while this Jaguars
team probably isn't as strong inside as
that one, it still presents many ,of the
same problems under veteran coach
Dimitric Salters.
* "They really speed the game up and
force you to play up tempo, and they're
real aggressive defensively," the coach
said. "They give you a lot of different
looks defensively. Theywant to make you
hesitate and be indecisive, and they feed
off of that. They try to make it real tough
to get into any offensive flow. Coach Salt-
ers does a really nice job. They're a well
coached team. They do what they do very
well."
Marianna struggled at times this sea-
son, starting out 2-4 and losing five out of
itslast six games heading into the district
tournament. The season took an even
darker turn when three MHS players -
including one starter were suspended
for an off-court incident during a home

game against Cottondale on Feb. 2.
But the Bulldogs rallied through the ad-
versity and overcame a 15-point deficit in
a district semifinal win over Walton, and
thoroughly dominated the top-seeded
Crusaders in a title game performance
that was arguably the most impressive of
the season for MHS.
"I think the timing for us to play as well
as we can playwith what we have is prob-
ably as good as it can be," Blanton said.
"We're peaking at the right time and play-
ing together. We're counting on each oth-
er, depending on each other, and no one
is trying to do more than he's capable.
We're just playing together as a team.
"That has been a large part of the suc-
cess, kids understanding their role and
accepting it and believing in it."


Some might say that winning the dis-
trict championship qualifies this season
as a success for Marianna, but Blanton
said there's no reason to stop there.
"We're still playing, so we'll keep trying
to win games," he said. "(Winning dis-
trict) was probably an overachievement
with some of the things we've had go-
ing on, but at this point we're just taking
it game by game. With us being 12-12, I
told the kids that may sound just so-so or
even bad to some people, but if you were
a bad team you wouldn't be here.
"We've made some improvements, and
as long as we can improve game by game
and keep winning, that's great. But it's
going to be a tough task for sure. Every-
body is good at this point. It will be a real
tough task."

The Malone Lady Tigers held
off the Baker Lady Gators for a

in 1A Regional Semifinals, while
Graceville found the road more
troublesome, falling to South

Graceville had to travel to open

South Walton held leads of

adding nine and Zay Henderson
eight.
South Walton won despite
missing 18 free throws on the
night converting 16 of 34 -
with Graceville finishing just 7 of
16 from the charity stripe.
"They jumped on us early and
scored in transition constantly,
and got some easy second shots

Errors plague Lady Bulldogs in loss


.., .


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
Marianna's Mallory Dean throws to first Tuesday night against Arnold.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Marianna Lady Bull-
dogs suffered their third
straight loss to start the sea-
son Tuesday night, falling to
Arnold 17-12 at home.
For the second consecutive
game, Marianna was a vic-
tim of its own shaky defense,
committing eight errors af-
ter committing nine in last
week's 10-7 loss to Liberty
County.
It's a disturbing trend that
Lady Bulldogs coach Scott
Wiggins said he hopes is
more early season rust than
long-term problem.
"Defensively, we're not
making plays right now.
We're giving teams too many
opportunities is what it boils
down to," he said. "We just
keep -shooting ourselves in
the foot defensively. (Arnold)
had 17 runs on seven hits.


That sums it up right there."
Arnold scored two runs in
the top of the first inning off
of two MHS errors, but the
Lady Bulldogs answered with
a four-spot in the bottom of
the frame to take the lead.
But the Lady Marlins post-
ed five in the third to take a 7-
4 edgd, and put up four more
in the top of the sixth to take
a 12-6 lead.
Mallory Dean clubbed a
two-rim home run for Mari-
anna in the bottom of the
inning, but five more Arnold
runs in the top of the seventh
quelled any hopes for a rally.
Dean had two hits on the
night, while Taniyah Robin-
son and Linsey Basford each
led the team with three hits.
Whitney Lipford added two
hits for MHS, with Reagan
Oliver and Mya Boykin each
with one.
Dean started in the circle


and went four innings, walk-
ing one and striking out
three, and Breanna Willis is-
sued three walks in three in-
nings of work.
Marianna will next play at
North Florida Christian to-
night before returning home
Friday for its first district
game against Walton.
In the meantime, Wiggins
said his team would need to
find a way to tighten up the
defense in order to get the
season back on track
"We've just got to keep
practicing and getting better
at it. We're swinging the bats
well, we've just got to stop
this on the defensive side," he
said. "We've got some people
in unfamiliar positions and
some -people are going to
have to swap positions. We'll
do some changing and see if
we can overcome it. We just
have to make the plays."

"Everyone is contribut-

do them all at once this
year. Maybe we'll get that
Saturday."

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: After eight years at my job,
I was let go. I have a felony record. The
CEO who knew of my background retired
last year. He felt I had proved myself
and had no problem with me. When he
retired, we got an interim CEO. I told him
about my record as soon as he came on
board. Today, he decided our company
would have a zero-tolerance policy for
any criminal records, so I was fired..
Annie, I worked hard to show that I had
overcome my record. Was this a fair thing
for the temporary CEO to do? I was told if
I kept to the straight and narrow, I would
be fine. But apparently, my honesty
didn't pay off. What can I do?
THINK I'M A GOOD PERSON

Dear Good Person: If a company fires
you because of your race, sexual prefer-
ence, gender or religion, you would be
able to sue them for wrongful termina-
tion. If the zero-tolerance policy was im-
plemented solely to skirt around one of
the reasons listed above, you might have
a case. Otherwise, there doesn't seem to


Bridge


Today's deal involves several ducks of the un-
feathered variety, some more successful than
others. What are they? South is in three no-
trump. West leads his fourth-highest diamond
and East plays the queen.
When South denied a four-card major in an-
swer to Stayman, North understandably hoped
that the diamond suit would not prove a fatal
liability in no-trump. Five clubs looked unlike-
ly with his hand, although it could have been
made. South has seven top tricks: two spades,
three hearts, one diamond (given trick one) and
one club. At least three extra tricks can come
from clubs, but is there a danger in diamonds?
Yes! Note that if declarer takes the first trick
and runs the club queen, East wins and returns
the diamond seven (the higher of two remain-
ing cards). Whether South covers with his jack
or ducks, the defenders run the suit for down
one.
Now let's go back and permit declarer to duck
at trick one. East leads back the diamond sev-
en. What happens now? If South covers with
the jack or king, it is West's turn to duck, keep-
ing communication with his partner. Again the
contract fails. But declarer can duck for a sec-
ond time, letting East win with his seven. Now
the contract makes.


be much recourse, although you could
consult an attorney. Please know that
your eight-year record as an exemplary
employee should help you land another
job. Also contact the Safer Foundation
for suggestions'and assistance.

Dear Annie: The letter from "Put Out in
Peoria," whose family members boycott
one another's weddings, is a sad but
classic example of the many petty fam-
ily feuds that make their way into your
column. Everyone has flaws, and family
members hurt one another's feelings,
usually unintentionally. Bad behavior
and selfishness should not be condoned.
However, I'd like to suggest that anyone
who is fuming'about her young children
not being invited to a wedding or about
her cousin's claiming Grandma's garnet
ring that was promised to her should
pause to consider all the real suffering
there is such as the person down the
.block with terminal cancer or the friend
whose child was killed by a drunk driver.

Recall: Honeywell Surround
portable electric heaters
The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission and Kaz USA Inc., of
Southborough, Mass., have announced the re-
call of about 19,000 Honeywell Surround port-
able electric heaters. The heater's internal
housing, including the fan, heating element
and circuitry, can detach, posing a burn haz-
ard to consumers.
This recall includes Honeywell Surround Se-
lect Series portable electric heaters with mod-
el numbers HZ-420, HZ-430, and HZ-440 and
five-digit date codes that have 11 as the last
two digits. The heaters are black or white cyl-
inders with a handle on top. The model num-
ber is stamped into the plastic on the bottom
of the heater. The date code is located on the
metal prongs of the heater's electrical plug.
"Honeywell" and "Surround Heat" are printed
on the front of the heaters. This heater was
distributed by Kaz USA under license from
Honeywell.
The recalled heaters were manufactured in
China by China Ningbo SMAL Electrics Co.
Ltd., and sold at Best Buy, Meijer and
Walmart stores nationwide from July 2011
through December 2011 for between $50 and
$70.
Consumers should immediately unplug and
stop using the heaters and contact Kaz for a
full refund. Call (800) 370-8137 from 8:30 a.m.
to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit
the firm's web site at www.kaz.com/recall.
