HISTORY LESSON



Buffalo Soldiers visit



Cottondale High School


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Will Barnes, president of the Marianna chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers, tells eighth graders at Cottondale High School about the history
of the organization's namesake military units during a program Thursday.

Part of studying Black History, period after the Civil War


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Eighth-graders from Cottondale
High School learned about the history,
equipment and dress of the Buffalo
Soldiers, military regiments of African
American soldiers started in 1866, as
a continuation of their studies of that
time period and of Black History.
The experience was coordinated
by Cottondale High School teacher
Demeetris Beachum as a way to get


students familiar with the people from
after the Civil War, a period the stu-
dents are currently studying.
Will Barnes, president of the Marian-
na chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers, said
the. uffalo Soldiers began with two
.cavalry regiments in 1866. The soldiers
were mainly.stationed out west. They
built and defended forts and roads,
along with other peacetime activities
such as building telegraphs and map-
ping the area.
Certain regiments and experienced


soldiers fought in the Spanish-Ameri-
can War, WWI, WWII and the Korean.
War. Regiments were either integrated
or disbanded by the end of the Korean
War. There is a Buffalo Soldiers inte-
grated regiment in California, Barnes
said.
"If we tried to give you the whole
history of the Buffalo Soldiers it'd take
weeks," Barnes said.
Students were also able to see and

man stabs


neighbor


eight times

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
A fight between neighbors in an area
north of Marianna ended in bloodshed
Wednesday night when one man was
stabbed multiple times.
Marianna resident Jason Randall Har-
S low is charged with ag-
gravated battery in the
g alleged stabbing of Clay
Alday Wednesday night,
according to a press re-
lease from the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office.
Harlow Authorites say Harlow
stabbed Alday about
eight times as they were fighting and
that Harlow has admitted his actions.
Alday was not armed during the in-
cident, authorities said. Deputies were
called to Abel Lane around 10:50 that
night on reports of the stabbing at Har-
low's 5153 Abel Lane residence. Alday
lives across the street and was visiting.
The men were drinking together when
they began arguing and then physi-
cally fighting about comments made
concerning a distant relative of one of
the two men, according to Maj. Donnie
Branch of the'Jackson County Sheriff's
Office.
Aldaywas taken toJackson Hospital for
treatment. He subsequently underwent
surgery for injuries not considered life-
threatening, authorities say. After being
medically checked and cleared, Harlow
was taken to the Jackson County jail to
await his first court appearance.

pared well ahead of time. Friday could

ily emergency kit. Although this storm
is not expected to be on a catastrophic
scale, it does provide a good opportu-
nity to prepare.

What follows Mardi Gras party? Ash Wednesday


Special to the Floridan

Everyone knows that Mardi
Gras means/a party, but not as
many know what comes on the
very next day: Ash Wednesday,
the first day of the season of
Lent.
Ashes were used frequently in
the Old Testament as an expres-
sion of both humiliation and
sorrow, but on Ash Wednesday
they instead signify penitence
and serve as a reminder of our
mortality.


Early Christians observed a
"season of fasting and peni-
tence" (Lent, from the old Eng-
lish word for "lengthen"), in
preparation for the Paschal feast
we now call Easter.
Lent was also the last part of
the preparation of adults for
Baptism, and all Christians are
invited to observe a holy Lent
by self-examination and repen-
tance, by prayer, fasting, and
self-denial, and by reading and
meditating on the holy word of
God.


St. Luke's Episcopal Church
invites you to join them for
the imposition of ashes at
7:30 a.m.- on Ash Wednes-
day, Feb. 22, or at 6 p.m. that
same day for the complete
service' of Ash Wednesday.
Long before we can celebrate
the Resurrection, we must pre-
pare ourselves and that is what
Lent is all about.
For more information about
St. Luke's Episcopal Church in
Marianna, visit www.stlukes
marianna.org or call 482-2431.


Benefit for sick 6-year-old


Special to the Floridan

The Heaven's Saints Motorcy-
cle Ministry Northwest Florida
Chapter is sponsoring "Praise
and Eat for Destiny Harp" on
Saturday, Feb. 25.
The benefit event starts at 6
p.m. at the First United Method-
ist Church in Marianna. Gospel

cess Cockerham and Joy Castillo
and family will be featured. On
sale will be whole Boston butts


at $25 each, and $7 dinner plates
with a pulled pork sandwich,
coleslaw, chips, dessert and tea.
"Praise and Eat" is a benefit
for 6-year-old Destiny Harp,
who suffers from Batten disease.
Event proceeds will assist her
family with medical and living
expenses they are expected to in-
cur in March when Destiny trav-
els to NewYork for treatment.
For more information, contact
Jeannette Deese at 544-6908 or

Prayer grows more successful with practice


During World War II,
English novelist Aldous
Huxley persuaded him-
self that human behavior could
be modified and humankind's
aggressiveness stemmed.
Although partially blind from
an accident in his youth, he un-
dertook rigorous eye exercises
and was successful enough to
get a driver's license.
Earlier, in his best-known
novel, "Brave New World," Hux-
ley had bitterly satirized a futur-
istic world in which humanity
would be pacified and satisfied
by drugs. But in the aftermath
of the war's devastation, he
reconsidered his thinking about
the possible value of drugs in
taming human savagery.


In a brief volume, titled "The
Doors of Perception," Huxley


I
i
)
*^


revealed his expe-
rience of ingest-
Sing mescaline, a
natural halluci-
nogen used by
Mexican Indians
David in religious rites,
Yount exulting in its
apparent ability
to expand con-


sciousness and calm the spirit.
In yet an earlier book, he
had studied saints and ascet-
ics who had achieved levels of
consciousness in which they
claimed to have seen God
- but with immense effort.
Huxley now speculated that
mind-bending drugs might be


everyman's low-effort tickets
to tame the violence of human
nature and experience heaven
on Earth.
As we know now, the drug
culture of the 1960s and '70s
yielded different results. Seeking
cheap transcendence, many
people burned out with cocaine,
wasted away on heroin, be-
came more violent with crack,
lived nightmares on LSD and
mellowed out on marijuana at
the expense of alertness and
responsibility.
But while street drugs became
the scourge of society, new
prescription medications began
to show remarkable success in
behavior modification. Tran-
quilizers largely emptied our


asylums. Manic depression and
schizophrenia could now be
treated. The prescription drug
Prozac was touted for turning
human monsters into virtual
pussycats.
Although the path to God is
not through medicine cabinets,
there are nevertheless physical
and mental regimens that can
be used to improve our effec-
tiveness in prayer.
In combination, diet, exercise,
meditation, education and hard
work hold out the promise of
a modicum of health, fitness,
attractiveness, longevity and
self-respect.
At the outset, prayer can be
a tedious exercise, but it grows
more successful and satisfying


as it becomes habitual. Since
many God-seekers are already
disciplined about other aspects
of their lives, the discipline
they apply to their minds and
bodies can be redirected to
spiritual devotion. We are more
prepared than we may imagine
to begin knocking on the doors
of perception and having them
opened to us.
Thomas Merton, the young
American poet-turned-Trap-
pist monk, was knocking on
heaven's door when he-prayed
to God: "I will not fear, for you
are ever with me, and you will
never leave me to face my perils
alone."
Merton didn't require drugs to
compose that prayer.

Godspeed John Glenn: 50 years since first US orbit


The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL
- The name still reso-
nates and generates goose
bumps like few others in
the world of spaceflight.
John Glenn.
Even astronauts not
just the rest of us mere
mortals get mushy talk-
ing about Project Mercu-
ry's "clean Marine" who
led the country's charge
into orbit.
As the world's most en-
during and endearing
spaceman gets set to cel-
ebrate what no other liv-
ing astronaut has done
- mark the 50th anniver-
sary of his own spaceflight
- he finds himself in over-
drive reflecting on what
has been an undeniably
charmed, golden life.
First American to orbit
the Earth, aboard Friend-
ship 7 on Feb. 20, 1962.
Oldest person to fly in
space, at age 77 aboard
shuttle Discovery in 1998.
U.S. senator for four terms
and one-time presiden-
tial candidate. Namesake
of a NASA center as well
as a university's school of
public affairs.
Now 90 and living in Co-
lumbus, Ohio, Glenn just
recently gave up flying
and sold his twin-engine
Beechcraft Baron. It was
tough hopping up on a
wing to climb aboard the
plane. Glenn and his wife,
Annie, who turns 92 on
Friday, both had knee re-
placements last year.
"We decided it was time
to pack it in," Glenn said.
Besides, his goal was to
fly the plane until 90, "and
I did that."
With so many blessings
and accomplishments,
there's still one brass ring
Glenn wishes he'd snagged:
Apollo 11, the first manned
moon landing in 1969. It's
a sentiment he's shared of-
ten with Neil Armstrong,
Ohio's other revered son
and the first man to set
foot on the moon.
"I've been very fortunate
to have a lot of great ex-
periences in my life, and
I'm thankful for them. So
I don't see myself as being
envious. But in his case, I'll
make an exception," Glenn
said, laughing, during an
interview late last month
with The Associated Press.
Armstrong, for his part,
would like one day to be in
Glenn's shoes "and have as
much success in longevi-
ty." He called the milestone
"the most significant of all
the space anniversaries."
"And John Glenn de-
serves all the honors that
his country can bestow,"
the 81-year-old Armstrong
wrote in an email. "He is
an American patriot."
Five decades later, Glenn
reflects with pride on the
accomplishments of all
seven of NASA's original
Mercury astronauts not
just his own.
"It's amazing to me to
look back 50 years and
think that it's been 50
years," Glenn said, seated
in his top-floor office at.
Ohio State University, in-
side the school of public af-
fairs that bears his name.
Nearly every day he's
asked about spaceflight
or NASA, so "it's remained
very vivid to me."
Glenn is reluctant to
comment on his superstar
status. He's as modest and
down-to-Earth as ever. He
cites attitude and exercise
he tries to walk a couple
of miles every day -as key
to his active longevity.
He walks and talks like
a much younger man -
standing straight and tall,
and asking questions, not


just answering them, in a
clear and steady voice. He
appears almost as robust
as he was for his shuttle
ride at age 77.
The only other surviving
Mercury astronaut, Scott
Carpenter, ranks Glenn
as tops among the hand-
picked military test pilots
presented in 1959 as the
Mercury Seven.
"He's a very good man,"
said Carpenter, 86, who
followed Glenn into or-
bit on May 24, 1962. "He's
_a grown-up man, but


he's still a very good Boy
Scout."
Fifty years ago on Mon-
day, Glenn circled Earth
three times in five hours,
putting America on even
footing with the Soviet
Union. The Soviets al-
ready had laid claim to
the world's first manmade
satellite, Sputnik, and the
first spaceman, Yuri Gaga-
rin, who had orbited the
globe a year earlier. Gaga-
rin logged a full revolu-
tion; the next cosmonaut
to fly spent an entire day
in orbit.
Finally, it was America's
turn to shine. But it was a
nail-biter. Unlike the se-
cretive Soviet space pro-
gram, NASA conducted its
launches on live TV.
First, a thruster malfunc-
tioned in orbit. Glenn had
to take manual control.
Then there were signs that
the protective heat shield
on his capsule was loose.
No one, Glenn included,
knew whether he would
survive the fiery re-entry.
The shield proved to be
tight, and Glenn returned a
national hero on the scale
of Charles Lindbergh.
Just outside Glenn's office
at Ohio State is the hand
controller he used to fly
the Friendship 7 capsule.
The display box also holds
the small failed thruster.
The capsule itself and
Glenn's silver spacesuit are
at the Smithsonian Insti-
tution's National Air and
Space Museum.
Glenn hasn't auctioned
any of his memorabilia,
unlike some space pio-
neers who have found
themselves in legal tussles
with NASA. "I have never
sold a single thing. Nor will
I," Glenn said firmly.
His hope is that the me-
mentos drum up interest
among schoolchildren
in space, science and
technology.
A collectible from that


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this Jan. 25 photo, Sen. John Glenn speaks during an
interview at his office in Columbus, Ohio.


first flight inspired astro-
naut Donald Pettit, 56,
now a resident of the Inter-
national Space Station. He
recalls getting a pair of Red
Ball Jets sneakers as a boy
growing up in Oregon, and
inside the box was a 45-
rpm record of Glenn de-
scribing his orbital flight.
The recording blew Pettit
away, as did the photos
of the pioneering astro-
nauts that appeared in Life
magazine.
From that moment on,
Pettit was captivated with
space, as were so many
of his Cold War-born
generation.
With Glenn's flight,
"spaceflight moved from
science fiction to science
fact," Pettit said from orbit
last month.
All told, 330 Americans
have followed Glenn into
orbit. Glenn was actually
the third American and
the fifth person to
rocket into space. Alan


Shepard and Gus Gris-
som were confined to 15-
minute suborbital hops
in 1961, the same year the
two Soviet cosmonauts
blazed trails into orbit.
America was badly be-
hind. Unmanned U.S.
rockets kept exploding on
the launch pads.
"Are you apprehensive
about the situation you're
in? Yeah, but you volun-
teered, you want to do this
thing, it's important for the
country, and you're glad to
have been selected for it,
and you're going to do the
best job you can possibly
do."
Ten times Glenn's launch
was delayed. Finally, on the
morning of Feb. 20, 1962,
Carpenter called out from
the blockhouse, "godspeed
John Glenn" moments
before the Mercury-Atlas
rocket ignited.
Glenn did not hear Car-
penter's poetic send-off
until after the flight.

Elderly woman allegedly falls victim to scam


From staff reports

An elderly woman fell victim to a
scam Friday morning, Feb. 10, at the
Marianna Walmart.
According to a press release from
the Jackson County Sheriff's De-
partment, the woman was shop-
ping with an infant when she was
approached by middle-aged wom-
an who offered to assist her. As they
shopped, the middle-aged woman
introduced the elderly victim to a
second female in the store.
During a conversation, they


shared with the victim that the sec-
ond woman found a large sum of
cash in the parking lot. The elderly
woman was convinced by the other
two that they would share the cash
equally among the three.
To ensure each party showed good
faith in the distribution of the cash,
each reportedly agreed to provide
upfront good-faith money.
One of the women rode with the
elderly woman to her bank where
she withdrew money from her ac-
count. The second woman followed
in a separate vehicle. The press


release states that they all returned
to the store's parking lot to divide
the money.
The elderly woman allegedly gave
the two females her share of the
good-faith money. The two suspects
kept all her money and drove away.
Authorities report that one of the
vehicles of the two suspects appears
to be a late model gold Chevrolet
Impala.
The sheriff's office asks that any-
one with knowledge to.the identity
of the suspects to call the sheriff's
office at 850-482-9648.


From Consumer Reports


Costco tops list of major retail chains


By the editors of Consumer Reports
Costco pleased shoppers
more than any other retailer,
according to Consumer
Reports' recent survey.-More than
26,000 readers reported back on
their shopping experience at 10 of
the nation's major retailers in the
survey.
In its latest report, CR subscrib-
ers accounted for roughly 55,108
shopping experiences at Costco,
J.C. Penney, Kmart, Kohl's, Macy's,
Meijer, Sam's Club, Sears, Target
andWalmart. For the first time,
some shoppers also told CR about
their experiences at those retailers'
online stores.
Costco was the only chain to earn
an outstanding grade for the overall
quality of its merchandise, whether
in stores or online. And it earned
above-average scores for all 10 of
the product categories that were
rated, including electronic enter-
tainment, jewelry and sporting
goods. Costco's website did better
than its walk-in stores on all counts
except product quality (for which
the two types tied) and earned top
marks for layout, product value and
checkout.
However, in-store shoppers found
a few chinks in Costco's armor: The
chain's walk-in stores scored below
average for selection, checkout

and its shoppers were more likely
than those elsewhere to complain
about a lack of fitting rooms.
In addition to Costco, Kohl's and
J.C. Penney earned above average
scores for the quality of their goods
in all product categories for which
CR had sufficient responses. People
were especially happy with the
value and layout at Kohl's stores.
Target boasts that its stores are
easy to navigate, and CR's readers
rated its layouts higher than that of
some other chains. Otherwise, the
in-store shopping experience was
just average, and Target's website
was not especially easy to use.
Macy's stores rated better than
average for product quality and
layout. Macy's was the only chain
besides Costco to receive raves for
its kitchenware and personal care
products. Readers also praised the
chain's clothing and home decor
selections.
Meijer scored better than some
others for layout and the quality of
kitchenware, personal care items
and electronic entertainment,
but scores for its clothing were
lukewarm.
Sears' overall scores for its walk-in
stores and website were similar, but
the chain's online customer service
rated lower than its walk-in service.
Respondents said Sears, Costco and


Sam's Club were the best places to
buy hardware.
Sam's Club stores, virtual and real,
scored about the same as Sears
overall. Readers who shopped at its
walk-in stores complained of long
checkout lines and limited selec-
tion but rated product quality and
layout as better than average.
Walmart and Kmart walk-in
stores scored much lower than
those of other retailers. Walmart
might be associated with low
prices, but respondents said the
product value was better at Costco
and Kohl's. Kmart was the only
chain to score below average for
value. Kmart also received low
marks for selection, service and
checkout speed. Walmart was the
only chain to earn below-average
scores for the quality of its men's,
women's and children's clothing.
(Kmart received below-average
scores for men's and women's
clothing.) Walmart shoppers were
especially likely to complain about
long checkout lines and inadequate
customer service.
In addition, 23 percent of the
Walmart shoppers who returned
an item to one of its stores the
previous year reported at least one
problem, significantly more than
at any other retailer. (The problem
was usually that they were offered
only store credit.)

Honduras fire inmates were not convicted


The Associated Press

COMAYAGUA, Honduras -
The prisoners whose scorched
bodies were carried out piece by
piece Thursday morning from a
charred Honduran prison had
been locked inside an over-
crowded penitentiary where
most inmates had never been
charged, let alone convicted, ac-
cording to an internal Honduran
government report obtained by
The Associated Press.
The Honduran government
report, which was sent to the
United Nations this month, said
57 percent of some 800 inmates
of the Comayagua farm prison
north of the Central American
country's capital were either
awaiting trial or being held as
suspected gang members.
A fire that witnesses said was
started byan inmate tore through
the prison Tuesday night, burn-
ing and suffocating screaming
men in their locked cells as res-
cuers desperately searched for
keys. The death toll was at 355
Thursday afternoon, according
to attorney general's spokesman
Melvin Duarte, making it the
world's deadliest prison fire in a
century.
Honduran authorities said
they are still investigating other
possible causes based on pris-
oner accounts, including that
the fire could have been set in
collusion with guards to stage a
prison break.
"All of this isn't confirmed, but
we're looking into it," Duarte
said.
Survivors told horrific tales of
climbing walls to break the sheet
.metal roofing and escape, only to
see prisoners in other cell blocks
being burned alive. Inmates were
found stuck to the roofing, their
bodies fused to the metal.


From the time firefighters re- State Department, the United
ceived a call at 10:59 p.m. local Nations and human rights


time, the rescue was marred by
human error and conditions
that made the prison ripe for
catastrophe.
According to the report, ob-
tained exclusively by the AP on
any given day there were about
800 inmates in a facility built for
500. There were only 51 guards
by day and just 12 at night.
On the night of the fire, only six
guards were on duty, four of them
in towers overlooking the prison
and two in the facility itself, Fi-
del Tejeda, a guard at the prison
for 14 years, told The Associated
Press. One of those guards held
all the keys to the prison doors,
he said.
Tejeda was in one of the towers
and fired two shots as a warning
to the other guards when he first
saw flames at about 10:50 p.m.,
he said as he stood in uniform
outside the prison Thursday
morning, rifle in hand.
"Six officers were on guard,"
he said. Prison rules prevented
him from leaving his post to help
with the rescue.
"It would be a criminal act," he
said.
Tejeda said firefighters took
about half an hour to arrive.
Miguel Angel Lopez, a guard
who was on duty inside the pris-
on, separately told the AP that he
had called the fire department as
soon as he saw there was a fire,
but crews took about 30 minutes
to show up.
The Comayagua fire chief has
said his men were there in 10
minutes but were kept outside
the gates by guards who feared
the fire was cover for a prison
break.
Honduran prisons have long
been sites of human rights vio-
lations, according to the U.S.


organizations.
Nationwide, more than half
of the 11,000 inmates in the
country's 24 prisons are awaiting
trial.
Every prison is crammed with
more people than it was built for,
and there's rarely enough food.
Guards beat and torture prison-
ers, and gangs control the facili-
ties, taking advantage of staff-
ing ratios that on any given day
amount to one guard for every
65 prisoners.
At Comayagua, prisoners sup-
ported themselves, growing corn
and beans, and raising fish and
chicken, on the 36 acres of farm-
land surrounding the facility.
The Honduran- government
report shows Comayagua au-
thorities routinely confiscate
marijuana and crack, handmade
weapons and cell phones.
During a recent review, Co-
mayagua's electrical system was
in order, and drinking water was
available. But the air and ven-
tilation systems were listed as
insufficient, and the report says
prisoners were not informed of
their rights.
The prison has no medical or
mental health care and the bud-
get allows less than $1 per day
per prisoner for food. Prisoners
only needed to bear a simple tat-
too to be incarcerated under the
strict Honduran anti-gang laws,
the report said. The U.N. con-
demns the practice as a violation
of international law.
"This tragedy could have been
averted or at least not been so
catastrophic if there had been an
emergency system in all the pen-
itentiaries in the country," hu-
man rights prosecutor German
Enamorado told HRN Radio.
National prison system


director Danilo Orellana de-
clined to comment on the super-
vision or the crowded conditions
in Comayagua. He referred anAP
reporter to the commander of
the prison police, who said com-
ment would have to come from
his public affairs office, which
did not respond to an AP request
late Wednesday.
President Porfirio Lobo on
Wednesday suspended Orellana
and other top prison officials.
Inside the prison, charred walls
and debris showed the path of
the fire, which burned through
six barracks that had been
crammed with 70 to 105 inmates
each in four-level bunk beds.
Bodies were found piled up in
the bathrooms, where inmates
apparently fled to the showers,
hoping the water would save
them from blistering flames.
Prisoners perished clutching
each other in bathtubs and
curled up in laundry sinks.
"It was something horrible,"
said survivor Eladio Chica, 40,
as he was led away by police
Wednesday night, handcuffed, to


testify before a local court about
what he saw. "I only saw flames,
and when we got out, men were
being burned, up against the
bars, they were stuck to them."
A team of 17 pathologists
were working in three groups
in the capital's main morgue
to identify the victims with the
help of fingerprints and den-
tal records. The government of
Chile was sending a team of 14
pathologists to help.
About 115 bodies were in the
morgue Thursday morning,
after being moved by refriger-
ated truck overnight. At least six
were burnt beyond recognition,
Duarte said.
More than 800 relatives were
staying in temporary housing
south of the capital while they
awaited the arrival of their loved
ones' bodies.
The deadly inferno never had
to happen.
The frantic inmate who started
the fire gave warning, phoning
the state governor and scream-
ing he was going to burn the
place down.

Thailand: Iranians' targets

were Israeli diplomats


The Associated Press

BANGKOK Three Ira-
nians detained after ac-
cidentally setting off ex-
plosives in Bangkok were
planning to attack Israeli
diplomats, Thailand's top
policeman said Thursday
in the first confirmation
by local officials that the
group was plotting attacks
in Thailand.
Israel has strongly ac-
cused Iran of being be-
hind the botched plot, a
bombing in India and an
attempted bombing in the
former Soviet republic of
Georgia this week, which
Iran has denied.
Citing the similarity of
bombs used in New Delhi
and Tbilisi, national po-
lice chief Gen. Prewpan
Dhamapong said that Thai
authorities now "know for
certain that (the target)
was Israeli diplomats."
"This issue was about
individuals and the tar-
gets were specific," he
said. "This was something
personal."
Israel has accused Iran of
waging a covert campaign
of state terror and has
threatened military strikes
on Iranian nuclear facili-
ties. Iran has blamed the
Jewish state for the recent
killings of Iranian atomic
scientists and has denied


responsibility for all three
bomb plots. The explosion
Monday in New Delhi tore
through an Israeli diplo-
matic vehicle, wounding
the driver and a diplomat's
wife, and an attempt was
foiled the same day in
Georgia.
Speaking in an interview
with Israel Radio during
a trip to Japan, Israeli De-
fense Minister Ehud Barak
said: "It's clearer to more
and more of the world that
Iran, which is a veteran
sponsor of terror, is trying
to raise the.bar even more,
trying to harm diplomats
around the world."
Israel's U.N. ambassador
said Thursday the Security
Council should condemn
the attacks quickly.
"Israel expects it to is-
sue a clear condemnation
today, without any further
delay or equivocation,"
Ambassador Ron Prosor
said in a letter distributed
by the Israeli mission.
"This campaign bears the
unmistakable fingerprints
of the Iranian regime and
the highest echelons of the
Hezbollah leadership," his
letter said. "Their actions
constitute a clear threat to
the security and stability
of Lebanon, to the Middle
East, and to the many
countries that have been
targeted."


UN sees possible crimes against humanity


The Associated Press

BEIRUT U.N. Secre-
tary General Ban Ki-moon
accused the Syrian regime
of committing "almost
certain" crimes against
humanity Thursday as
activists reported fresh
violence and the arrest
of several prominent dis-
sidents, including a U.S.-
born blogger.
Speaking to reporters in
Vienna, Ban demanded
the Syrian regime stop us-
ing indiscriminate force
against civilians caught
up in fighting between
government troops and
President Bashar Assad's
opponents.
"We see neighborhoods
shelled indiscriminately,"
Ban told reporters in Vi-
enna. "Hospitals used as
torture centers. Children
as young as 10 years old
jailed and abused. We
see almost certain crimes
against humanity."
Syrian activists said gov-
ernment forces attacked
Daraa on Thursday, carry-
ing out arrests and shoot-
ing randomly in the city
where the uprising against
Assad erupted 11 months
ago. They also reported
intense clashes between
army defectors and gov-
ernment troops in the
central province of Hama.

nian border some 80 miles
south of Damascus, fol-

part of an effort by the re-
gime to extinguish major
pockets of dissent.
Also Thursday, the Local
Coordination Commit-
tees, an umbrella group
of activists, reported the
arrest of a several activists,
including Razan Ghaz-
zawi, a U.S.-born blog-
ger and press freedom
campaigner.
Ghazzawi, who was born
in Miami, Florida, was ar-
rested early in the uprising
and charged with spread-
ing false information, .but
she was released after
about two weeks.
The LCC said security
forces also arrested lead-
ing human rights activist
Mazen Darwish and oth-
ers during a raid on their
Damascus office. The re-


ports could not be imme-
diately confirmed.
The LCC said dozens
of people were killed
throughout the country
Thursday.
Another activist group,
the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human
Rights, said security forces
killed at least one civilian
in Daraa, and that clashes
between defectors and
government troops there
left at least three regime
soldiers dead.
The deadliest fighting
between troops and de-
fectors took place in the
village of Kfar Naboudeh
in Hama province where
government forces killed
10 defectors and four ci-
vilians, according to the
Observatory.


The group said the de-
fectors attacked an army
checkpoint near the Hama
town of Soran, killing four
soldiers.
Death tolls are all but
impossible to confirm in
Syria, which has banned
independent reporting.
The U.N. General As-
sembly scheduled a vote
on an Arab-sponsored
resolution strongly con-
demning human rights
violations by the Syrian re-
gime and backing an Arab
League plan aimed at end-
ing the conflict.
While General Assembly
resolutions are nonbind-
ing, they do reflect world
opinion on major issues
and supporters are hop-
ing for a high "yes" vote to
deliver a strong message.

Lady Tigers seek regional win


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Malone Lady Tigers will travel to
Bonifay on Saturday night in search of a
trip to the final four in Lakeland, as they
take on the Holmes County Lady Blue
Devils in the 1A Regional Finals at 7 p.m.
Malone (22-4) is coming off of a 54-49
road victory over Baker in the regional
semifinals on Tuesday, with Holmes
County having upset the District 1 cham-
pion Paxton to advance to Saturday's
game.
The two teams didn't play each other
during the regular season, but first-year
Malone coach Byron Williams said that he
has gotten to watch film on the Lady Blue
Devils and has come away impressed.
"They have a nice post player and a nice
guard, and all 10 or 11 that they rotate play


defense for 32 minutes," he said.
Like Malone, Holmes County employs
.full-court pressure for much of the game,
and Williams said that whoever handles it
best could come out the winner.
"I feel like we match up well," he said.
"They're going to press us and we're go-
ing to press them. The team that commits
the fewest turnovers will be the one that
wins."
With three senior guards in Venisha
Hearns, Shakira Smith and Olivia Daniels,
the Lady Tigers would seem as good a bet
as any to handle the pressure with poise.
"All of our guards are seniors and three
or four-year starters, so they should be
able to handle the pressure," Williams
said. "They have to stay in control, calm
and collected. I feel pretty good about
that."
But while the guards have been crucial


to their success, the Lady Tigers have been
led by sophomore center Curteeona Bre-
love, who is averaging 22.3 points and 13.5
rebounds on the season.
However, Williams said that it's her im-
pact at the other end of the court that has
been most valuable for his team.
"She's been our main scorer, but her big-
gest presence is defensively altering peo-
ple's shots when they come in the lane,"
he said. "That's the biggest thing that she
gives us."
While many would think that Malone
preferred a matchup with Holmes County
over Paxton who beat the Lady Tigers
in all three matchups this season the
coach said that his team's familiarity
with the Lady Bobcats could've been an
advantage.

Indians try


to get on track

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Chipola Indians will try to get their
season turned back in a positive direction
this weekend with home games against
Wallace-Dothan, Chattahoochee Valley,
St. Petersburg and St. Johns River.
The Indians (6-7) will take on Wallace
today at 11 a.m., and then play Chat-
tahoochee Valley at 1:30 p.m., with a
game against St. Petersburg scheduled
for Saturday at noon and matchups with
Chattahoochee Valley at 11 and St. Johns
River set for Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
- though rain is in the forecast for the
weekend, so the schedule is subject to-
change.
Chipola finds itself in need of some
wins after losing four of the last six to fall
a game below.500.
"We're scuffling around right now.
We're not playing very well," Indians
coach Jeff Johnson said Thursday. "We
don't understand how to play right now.
We've got a lot of growing up and a lot of
working to do. Hopefully, we can make
some progress between now and the
conference season. If we don't, we'll be in
trouble."
The Indians have been outscored by 14
runs so far this year, with the team bat-
ting .230 overall, and the pitching staff
with an overall team ERA of 5.49.
Chipola has also struggled defensively,
committing 33 errors so far, more than
twice the total of the opposition.
"It's not any one thing you can put your
finger on," Johnson said of his team's
struggles. "We're walking too many guys,
giving'up stolen bases, not pitching well

Marianna storms

back, edges East

Gadsden by a basket

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Bulldogs' run to a district title
may have been unpredictable, but their move
into the 4A Regional semifinals couldn't have
been more improbable.
Trailing the visiting East Gadsden Jaguars by
11 in the final minute of the third quarter, the
Bulldogs used a 20-3 run to storm back into the
lead, and held on at the end for a 56-54 win.
Trae' Pringley scored 20 of his game-high 27
points in the second half to lead the Bulldogs,
who will next face the tall task of hosting the
28-2 Godby Cougars on Tuesday night for a
trip to the Regional finals.
Pringley converted 14 of 18 free throws, in-
cluding 9 of 11 in the second half.
The Bulldogs made 24 of 35 from the char-
ity stripe for the game, including 9 of 15 in the
fourth quarter, while the Jaguars attempted 11
free throws on the night and converted only
six.
East Gadsden led 32-20 at halftime thanks to
a trio of 3-pointers by Terez Graham in the last
1:33 of the second quarter, and the Jaguars led
39-28 before a 3-point play by Pringley kick-
started the MHS rally. ,
Quay Royster, who had 12 points on the
night, made four free throws and a bucket to
help MHS get to within three at 42-39, and a
Driving basket by Pringley gave the Bulldogs
their first lead since the first quarter at 43-42
with 4:06 to play.
After an East Gadsden turnover, Pringley
knocked down a three to put the Bulldogs up
four, with another Jaguars turnover leading to
a quick basket by Shaquarious Baker to make
it 48-42 with 3:35 to play.
But Graham answered with back-to-back tri-
ples to tie it back up with 2:38 remaining, but
a free throw and layup by Pringley put MHS
back on top 51-48.
Two free throws by Janorris Cunningham
gave the Jaguars a one-point edge with 58.8
seconds on the clock, but Keyman Borders

Marianna's Hendrix

set for run at state

dkent@jcfloridan.com

After winning their first district title in over a de-
cade, the Marianna Bulldogs wrestling team sent 12
wrestlers to last weekend's regional meet in Green
Cove Springs, with senior Dalton Hendrix emerging
as the only state qualifier.
The 170-pounder not only qualified but was the
Region 1-1A champion, joining 15 other qualifiers
this weekend in Lakeland.
Action begins today, with the top six moving on to
Saturday's finals.
Hendrix, who made it to regionals last year before
coming up short in his bid for state, said it was an
honor to get to compete in Lakeland in his final year
of high school.
"I feel really good about it. I'm proud of how far I've
come," he said. "I've really come a long way since the
beginning of the year. I've never seen anybody out
of our region, but I feel like I have a good chance if I
keep wrestling like I have the last two weeks."

MHS JV team beats Liberty


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High
School junior varsity base-
ball team started their sea-
son with a solid 10-2 win
over the Liberty County
Bulldogs in Bristol on
Tuesday night.
For the season
opener, Marianna coach
Andy Shelton went with
sophomores Reid Long on
the mound and Andrew
Shouse behind the plate.
At first was Chris John-
son, with Gray Gilmore at
second, Trent Nobles at
shortstop and BT Johnson
at third. In left was Heath
Roberts, with Seth Single-
tary anchoring down cen-

situationally, we don't get
enough people on, base,
and defensively we're
fielding about .939, which
is awful.
"We haven't been good in
every phase of the game. I
can't point to one thing,
other than us not being
mentally or physically
tough enough to deal with
what we have to deal with
right now. We've still got a
lot of growing up to do."
To be fair, the Indians
have played one of the
most challenging sched-
ules in the country, having
played eight games against
teams ranked in the top 15
of the preseason NJCAA
poll.
But Johnson said that the
level of competition isn't
an excuse for his team's


Regional
From Page 1B
"With allthe nerves going
into a game like this, may-
be we would be more com-
fortable with a team we've
seen before," Williams
said. "Not really knowing
how they'll get after us has
got us on edge a little bit.
We just won't know how
we'll match up until things


Hendrix
From Page 1B
Marianna coach Ron
Thoreson said he was
hoping for more than one
state qualifier, but get-
ting a regional champion
in Hendrix was a nice
consolation.
"For Dalton to be a re-
gional champ, I'm pretty
proud of him because that
region is really tough," he
said. "I was real happy that
he got through, especially
as a champion. I would
have liked to get a couple
more through, but we've
got such a young team.
The other two or three I
thought should've gotten
through were only sopho-
mores. I think it was just a
lack of experience in that
big of a venue and level
of competition that got
us."
The coach said that it
was the first state qualifier
for Marianna since Austin
Cox in 2008.


ter and Walker Roberts
covering right field.
Marianna scored a run in
the first inning.
Designated hitter Tyler
Colson drew a walk, stole
second and scored on a
single by Singletary.
Long struck out the side
in order in the bottom of
the first.
Marianna added six runs
in the second inning off
hits from Colson, Gilmore,
BT Johnson, Walker Rob-
erts and a triple by Long.
Singletary drew a walk
and scored along with
Chris Johnson.
Long allowed one walk
in the second inning
but no runs crossed the
plate.


poor execution.
"Legitimately, we should
probably be around 9-4 if
we had played like we're
capable, but we haven't
done that," he said. "When
you play good people, you
get exposed, and we've
played good people. But
we haven't played well,
period."
The coach said that his
team will also have a tough
task this weekend and will
need to play better than it
has to this point to, come
away with wins.
With Panhandle Con-
ference season less than
a month away, Johnson
said that the time to start
showing signs of progress
is now.
"We've got to start get-
ting better because we
haven't gotten better in the
first couple of weeks. We
need to start moving in the
right direction," he said.


get going, so we'll have to
make adjustments as the
game goes on. It's not the
first time we've had to do
it, but I hope it won't be
the last."
If it's not, the Lady Tigers
will get to the state semifi-
nals for the first time since
2007 when they lost to
Pine Castle Christian by
a single point in the state
title game.
To get back there would


Hendrix credited the
Bulldogs coaches for help-
ing him be the first to get
back there.
"CoachShannonMaddox
has done a lot to help me,
and coach Mike and coach
Woody have all helped me
out a lot," he said. "The
coaching I've gotten has
helped me get this far."'
But Thoreson said it was
up to Hendrix to make the
progress he has made and
become the wrestler that,
he now is.
"This year, he has really
come on and adapted to
what we've been teaching
and showing the kids," he
said. "We changed some
things, and he's peaking
at the right time. I hope he
can keep it up through the
weekend."
Hendrix will need to win
at least twice today to ad-
vance to Saturday's finals,
but would heed to win
four times if he lost his
first match of the day and
fell into the consolation
bracket.


Marianna's next runs
came in the fourth in-
ning when BT Johnson
and Hampton Jordan both
drew walks, with Johnson
scoring on a single by Nic
Helms.
Freshman Jake Daffin
took the mound for Mari-
anna for the second and
third innings, giving up
two runs on two walks and
a hit.
Nobles closed out the
game, giving up no runs
on one walk.
Marianna added two
runs in the top of the fifth
inning when Liberty Coun-
ty issued three consecutive
walks, with Johnson and
Laurence Glover adding a
pair of singles.


"We've tried to play every-
body a little bit in different
positions, throw differ-
ent pitchers, and see what
we've got. In the next two
or three weeks, we have to
start narrowing this down
and get guys in the right
spots and comfortable and
make sure they can get it
done for us.
"This will be a very chal-
lenging weekend for us, so
we need to rise up to the
occasion and start playing
up to our capability."
Johnson said that either
Robby Coles or Jonathan
Paquet would get the start
on the mound in the early
game today, with the other
to start the second game of
the day.
The Indians will fol-
low with Austin Southall
on Saturday, with For-
rest Garrett and LJ Hollins
likely to get the nod on
Sunday.


signal a return to promi-
nence for a Malone pro-
gram that has been one of
the premier girls programs
inthe state in recent years.
"It would be nice and it
would mean a lot to us,"
Williams said of getting
to Lakeland. "But it would
also mean a lot to anybody
who has ever had anything
to do with Malone basket-
ball. I hope we'll represent
well."


With two wins to start
the day, he would move on
to Saturday.
Hendrix will face the No.
4 wrestler from another re-
gion, andThoreson said he
fully expects his senior to
make it through to Satur-
day at a minimum.
"I've got a lot of faith
in Dalton. He looks re-
ally good, and I think he'll
place in state. There's no
doubt in my mind," he
said. "We'll have to see how
he wrestles, but I believe
he'll be in the top six if not
the top three."
To be among the top
three wrestlers in the state
would be big not just .for
him but for the MHS pro-
gram, Hendrix said.
"It would be revitaliz-
ing this program back to
something we haven't had
in about 20 years," he said.
"I just have to keep it roll-
ing. When you get it going
good, you have to keep go-
ing with it. If you slack off
a little bit, it's hard to get it
back up."

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I have two daughters, ages
5 and 2. My in-laws favor the older girl.
They buy her more presents, give her
more money and pay way more atten-
tion to her than to her sister. They almost
seem obsessed with her. As soon as she '
walks in the door, they grab her and
make her sit next to them on the sofa for
the entire visit.
If they give my children gifts when we
are at someone else's house, they become
annoyed if I make the girls say hello to
our hosts before they are permitted to
play with their new toys. I feel it is only
polite.
We recently visited with them three
times over a six-week period. We drove
three hours to see them twice, and the
third time, they came to us. My mother-
in-law then became angry because I
refused to visit again two weeks later.
Both of my daughters get carsick, and
they have to take medication in order not
to throw up.
My husband does not like to make
waves, so he is of little help with this.


Bridge
Bridge defenders should see themselves as
mosquitoes, choosing the number of tricks
needed to defeat the contract as their target.
How should East bite into this three-no-trump
contract after West leads the spade eight?
South might have responded one no-trump,
but making a negative double to keep hearts W
in the picture was better. Then, after North #
showed extra values with at least six respect-
able clubs, it was reasonable for South to take a j
shot at three no-trump.
When the dummy comes down, East should
ask himself two questions: Where might my
side find five winners, and how many tricks
does declarer have ready to run?
The defenders need to take either four spades
and one heart or one spade and four hearts. If
East, after capturing the first trick, continues
spades, he should realize that South will win
with his king and take at least eight more tricks
via two diamonds (the finesse is working if
needed) and six clubs. Instead, East must win
with his spade ace and shift to the heart two,
hoping West has four strong hearts.
Here, this line of defense works perfectly.
West takes the trick as cheaply as possible and
returns the heart six to East's ace. Then another
heart through South results in down one.


I am not sure how much to say about
the situation without ruining our
relationship.
ANNOYED IN ATLANTA

Dear Atlanta: This is an issue of bound-
aries. Unless you are firm about them,
your in-laws will keep pushing.
The-trick is to remain polite and sweet
while you are saying no. ("We'd love to
visit again, but the girls get so sick when
they travel that we don't want them to
associate nausea with Grandma and
Grandpa. Maybe we can try again next
month.")
Meanwhile, the Internet and the cur-
rent crop of smartphones will allow
the in-laws to see and speak to the girls
often. You might even set up a time for a
daily cyber visit.
But please bring the blatant favoritism
to their attention before your younger
child is old enough to notice.
Tell them it is damaging the relation-
ship they have with both girls (as well as
their parents).

Horoscope
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Regardless of where
you're at or what you're do-
ing, be content with your
situation.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) When involved with
friends who are generous
and considerate, be sure to
unlock your wallet as best
you can.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Relax and just be your-
selfbecause, unfortunately,
any form of pretense could
make you look phony.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- If you allow your emo-
tions to gain the upper
hand, they are likely to af-
fect your ability to evalu-
ate certain situations in a
meaningful manner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- You're not the type of
person who tends to nurse
grudges, yet you might
have a difficult time being
around someone whom
you feel treated you badly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- You could unintention-
ally do something or use
words that will make you
look rudely disinterested
in what others say or do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
All you may want is.to be
helpful, but a friend might
consider any unsolicited
suggestions on your behalf
to be uncouth criticism.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Lending money or some-
thing of value to someone
who, time after time, fails
to return what he or she
borrows could be a pretty
dopey thing to do.
LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct. 23)-
Even if it's inconvenient for
you, stand by your word. If
you break a promise you
made, someone who holds
you in high esteem will be
severely disappointed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Strive to be discern-
ing of the job you're doing,
especially if you consider it
to be a work of art.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Be sure your
purse can withstand any
extravagant splurges you
subject it to.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Whether you be flit-
ting through the social
sphere or merely taking
care of business at work,
be on your best behavior
when placed in a highly
visible position.

Florida, S. Carolina among SEC favorites


.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this June 28,2011 photo, Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan sits
in the dugout after South Carolina beat Florida 5-2 in Game 2
of the College World Series best-of-three finals, to win the title.
in Omaha, Neb.


The Associated Press

Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan
couldn't believe he was saying the
words. Just two years ago it would
have been college baseball blas-
phemy: Pitchers are dominant in the
Southeastern Conference.
"The pitching is as good as it's
ever been," O'Sullivan said. "This
league's always had the Friday night
starters, but now it's a deep league
that has great Saturday and Sun-
day starters too. You've got power
arms in every bullpen. The depth is
tremendous."
The SEC has won three straight
national championships and the
contenders are lining up once again
this season. Two-time defending
national champion South Carolina
lost some of its top-shelf talent, but
is still formidable. The Gamecocks
- along with Florida, Arkansas, Van-
derbilt and LSU are among the fa-
vorites to win the SEC and contend
nationally.
All of them have a common trait:
Terrific pitching.
The trend is a combination of tal-
ent and circumstances. The NCAA
made a dramatic change last sea-
son when it adjusted the potency of
the sport's infamous metal bats that


sent homers and pitchers' earned
run averages soaring. The new bats
play much more like their wooden
counterparts.
As a result, almost all offensive cat-
egories plummeted.
Now pitching is king. And there are
multiple aces in the SEC who have
taken advantage, including Florida's
Hudson Randall, South Carolina's
Michael Roth and Arkansas' D.J.
Baxendale.
The Gators were picked by the
league's coaches as this year's favor-
ite after returning almost all of last
year's team that finished with a 53-
19 record (22-8 SEC) and advanced
to the College World Series cham-
pionship series before losing to the
Gamecocks. SEC player of the year
Mike Zunino (.371 batting average,
19 homers and 67 RBIs) and Preston
Tucker (.308, 15, 74) anchor a lineup
that has six regulars returning.
"We've got the capability to string a
lot of hits together," Tucker said. "It's
all about approach and focusing on
driving the baseball. We've just got
to focus on winning each weekend
and everything else will take care of
itself."
Randall, a junior right-hander,
leads the rotation after finishing 11-
3 with 2.17 ERA last season. Right-


hander Karsten Whitson (8-1, 2.40)
and left-hander Brian Johnson (8-3,
3.62) also have lots of experience.
"We've got a lot of guys back who
played a big role and that doesn't
happen very often in our game,"
O'Sullivan said. "We've got guys
who have been through it before, so
that's a good thing. But this league
is so competitive that we've just got
to worry about the SEC East first.
If we take care of that, we'll be in
line to accomplish all of our other
goals."
South Carolina's quest for a three-
peat will begin with several new fac-
es. The Gamecocks lost most of their
lineup mainstays, but have some
experience on the mound. Roth, a
senior left-hander, dominated with
a 14-3 record and 1.06 ERA last sea-
son. Junior Matt Price moves into
the rotation after saving 30 games
over the past two seasons.
"We don't get too far ahead of our-
selves," South Carolina coach Ray
Tanner said. "And I have said this
many, many times if you can
survive your conference through
the regular season, you win enough
to get to the postseason, you have
a chance because you are battle-
tested. 2012 is not going to be any
different."


LeBron not ruling out return to Cavaliers


The Associated Press

CLEVELAND LeBron
James says he could pic-
ture returning to the place
where his NBA journey
began.
Back in Cleveland.
Imagine that.
After practicing in a gym
where he refined his game
for seven seasons, James
said Thursday he would
not rule out a return to
the Cavaliers, the team he
carried to the brink of a
championship before he
spurned an entire region
by leaving as a free agent
for Miami in 2010.
Asked if he could play for


the Cavs again, James ini-
tially paused before giving
his answer.
"I don't know. I think it
would be gr'at," he said.
"It would be fun to play in
front of these fans again."
James put Cleveland
back on the NBA map by
taking the Cavs to one fi-
nals and winning two MVP
awards during his stay. He
left the franchise during a
summer in which he held
an entire city at bay as it
awaited his decision. Af-
ter he announced he was
joining the Heat during a
nationally televised spe-
cial, the Akron native was
vilified by the same fans


who cheered every one of
his dribbles and dunks.
Time has healed some of
the wounds not all.
James has made no at-
tempt to patch things .up
with Cavs owner Dan Gil-
bert, who harshly criticized
James in a scathing letter
to Cleveland's fans. Gilbert
promised to win a title be-
fore James, questioned his
character and told The As-
sociated Press he felt James
quit on the Cavs during the
playoffs.
James said he has no
bitterness toward Gilbert.
They have not spoken
since James met with the
Cavaliers on July 3, 2010.

March Madness games no


longer free online for all


The Associated Press

NEWYORK Some fans
will no longer be able to
watch every NCAA men's
basketball tournament
game online for free.
The model for stream-.
ing March Madness will
Change this year, Turner,
CBS and the NCAA an-
nounced Thursday. Games
aired on CBS will still be
free through the network's
website. Most, but not all,
viewers who get TBS, TNT
and truTV on their cable
or satellite systems will be
able to watch games aired
on those channels online,
at no cost.
Fans can also pay $3.99
to see every game on mul-
tiple platforms online,
mobile and tablet.
About 77 million house-
holds will be able to watch
the Turner channels for
free online through a pro-
cess called authentica-
tion. That's out of the 100
million that get TBS and
TNT, which are available
in around 87 percent of
American homes with
televisions.
The way fans watch
March Madness on TV
changed drastically last
season with the start of
CBS and Turner's 14-year,
$10.8 billion deal with
the NCAA. Instead of CBS
showing regional cover-
age and switching among
games, each contest aired
nationally in its entirety on
one of the four networks.
The shift was a hit: Viewer-
ship was up 14 percent for
the tournament's opening
weekend.
As for the previous five
years, fans could also see
every game for free online.
They watched 13.7 million
hours of streaming video
online and through mobile
devices, a 17 percent in-
crease from 2010.
I Turner Sports senior vice


president Matthew Hong
said the company consid-
ered using authentication
last year but wanted to
wait until people adjusted
to the new TV setup. An-
other factor was that the
system was available to far
fewer subscribers a year
ago; he hopesthat by 2013,
all customers who get the
Turner networks through
their providers will be able
to authenticate.
The "TV Everywhere"
model has become popu-
lar with many networks as
a way to allow viewers to
watch programs on mul-
tiple devices while encour-
aging them to stick with
cable and satellite provid-
ers. But authentication
- proving, you subscribe
to a provider that offers the
service does require an
extra step from past years
for fans trying to access
NCAA tournament games.
Turner is working to make
the process easier, such
as linking it to customers'
Facebook logins.


Some fans with the abil-
ity to authenticate may
just decide it's easier
to pay the $3.99, Hong
acknowledged.
"Obviously, a lot of
thought and market re-
search went into that price
point," he said. "We want-
ed to make it a fair price
and for people to get value
at that price."
March Madness on De-
mand was launched by
CBS and the NCAA in 2003
and required a subscrip-
tion, with an average price
of $15, for the first three
years.
In 2006, it converted to
a free, ad-supported ser-
vice. The new product will
be 'known as March Mad-
ness Live and still include
ads.
There was initially a
charge for watching games
on an iPhone, which be-
came free for just last year.
The app will be available
on Android phones for the
first time during this sea-
son's tournament.

2012 TOBACCO
PREVENTION SEMINAR


Dr. Victor DeNoble, Keynote Speaker

Dr. DeNoble is a well known presenter that has worked with numerous
state and federal governments all over the world in the fight against
tobacco. He was originally hired by the Philip Morris Tobacco Company
in the 1980s to research how the brain is affected by nicotine. His
findings showed that nicotine was addictive and had an affect on the
heart. Philip Morris, afraid that his research would discredit their past
statements about nicotine not being addictive, immediately fired him
and took possession of his research for destruction.

Come to learn more about the practices of the tobacco industry
(advertising, candy flavored tobacco products) and receive information
to improve your health. This event is FREE to the entire community.

Date: TUESDAY, February 21st
