Dylan Bass first appeared on the
Chipola College stage in a real-life dra-
ma last spring he and his theater-
major sweetheart got married there.
And now, inspired by his bride, Bass
will make his acting debut on.the same
stage next Wednesday. He'll play Judas
in "Godspell," which opens Feb. 29, for
,a four-night run and a Sunday matinee
to wrap up the show. He also takes a
turn as John the Baptist.
His wife, Courtney Haile Bass, is a
veteran of the Chipola stage. Theater
Director Charles Sirmon said she may
have been in more shows there than
almost anyone else. She started act-
ing for Sirmon when she was still a
student at Marianna High School and
dual-enrolled at Chipola. She was in al-
most every show Sirmon put on for the
next few years and continues to be very
involved as a supporter.
A hairstylist at Lemon Squeeze, she
has created character hairstyles for
the actors and actresses in, a number
of Chipola's productions. For instance,
for "How To Succeed In Business With-
out Really Trying," she was called on
to sweep a theater friend's hair up in a

acting bug during their courtship and
subsequent marriage, a union that has

The Marianna St. Patrick's Day festi-
val and fire truck pull is still about three
weeks away, but there are a number of
different ways people can get involved.
-The event will beheld from 1 to 6 p.m.
on March 17 at Madison Street Park.
"It's a way to get people downtown to
socialize and have a good time," said
Charlotte Brunner, Main Street director.
Instead of bed races, a fire truck pull
will be held. Teams of 10 people will be
timed to see how long it takes them to
pull a fire truck 20 feet. Whichever team
makes it 20 feet in the shortest amount
of time will win. Prizes and trophies will
be given out. The registration fee for this
event is $15 per team member, which
includes a T-shirt.
There's also space for a number of arts.
and crafts and food vendors during the.
event. The Bittersweet Blues Band will
provide live entertainment.
"I think they do a great job and I'm
always looking for new talent, and they.
reinvented their band," Brunner said of

told him 'Hey, cyou can do it now. You
can do it at Chipola.' I didn't push,.but
I did encourage, so I'm excited for him.
I told him, 'I'm going to live it through

its intention to do so in
paperwork dated September 2010.
But, informing the Floridan this
Wednesday that the charge had been
dropped that year, Ashley Chante
Brown-Barkley says she had by then suf-
fered significant personal and profes-
sional damage because of the incident
and that the fallout continues.
Authorities leveled the grand theft
charge in January 2010, based on.allega-

name was still Brown.

Bass said "Godspell" was a good fit
for his musical talents and his philoso-
phy in life. A former youth leader in his
church who sings and plays guitar, Bass
said he embraced and related to the
play's focus on joy and the love, com-
passion and forgiveness of Christ. The
work is based mainly on the Gospel of
Matthew and the parables found within
it, but set in contemporary times.
The musical's score includes "Day by
Day," a song that crossed over in a big
way as a hit on the pop charts a few de-
cades back. Within its lyrics, the core
theme of the work and the quest of its
characters can perhaps be found: "Oh
Dear Lord/Three things I pray/To see
thee more clearly/Love thee more dear-
ly/Follow thee more nearly/Day by day,"
are some of the most familiar words.
As Bass makes his stage debut in
"Godspell," the play also marks a mile-
stone for a new Chipola faculty memn
ber. With this show, Constance Smith
formally joins Sirmon at Chipola as the
school's first Director of Technical The-
atre. She and Sirmon went to Auburn
University together and she has worked
with him on productions many times in
the past as a guest consultant.
For "Godspell," she helped decide on
the urban, industrial-style staging. She
will be responsible for backdrops and
other scenic factors in Chipola produc-
tions, along with lighting and sound, as
she takes on her new role. She comes
on board at a pivotal time; this will be
the last full musical at Chipola in the
current theatre. A new state-of-the-art
facility is expected to be ready for the
start of theatre season this fall.
Tickets for "Godspell" are now avail-
able in the Chipola business office from
8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., at $7 for gen-
eral admission and at $5 for audience
members under the age of 18.

Obama has not laid out
a plan for overhauling per-
sonal income taxes. But
he has called for Bush era
tax cuts to end on indi-
viduals making more than
$200,000, thus increasing
their taxes, and for a 30
percent minimum tax on
taxpayers who make $1
million or more.
Obama decried the cur-
rent corporate tax system
as outdated, unfair and in-
efficient. "It's not right and
it needs to change," he said
in a statement.
The president would re-
duce the current 35 percent
corporate tax, which is the
highest in the world after
Japan but which many cor-
porations avoid by taking
advantage of deductions,
credits and exemptions.
Under his plan, manufac-
turers would receive in-

pay an even lower effective
tax rate of 25 percent.
His plan would eliminate
corporate tax benefits like
oil and gas industry sub-
sidies and special breaks
for the purchase of private
jets two provisions that
Obama has long targeted
and do away with cer-
tain corporate tax shelters.
In addition, Obama also
would impose a minimum
tax on foreign earnings, a

Camp, R-Mich., said he
appreciated the adminis-

Republican on the Sen-

been a recurrent theme

some taxes for small busi-

Congress to temporarily
cut payroll taxes on Ameri-

the weak economy.
But he has also called for
reducing the nation's long-
term deficits with a mix of
tax increases and spend-
ing cuts. Republicans have
flatly rejected tax increases.
And Romney on Wednes-
day criticized Obama's
proposal for corporations,
saying they would result in

The Graceville Tigers lived to
fight another day Tuesday night,
holding off a late charge by the
South Walton Seahawks to take
a 54-50 home victory in the first
round of the 1A playoffs.
With the win, the Tigers
advanced to Saturday's Regional
Final round to take on the West
Gadsden Panthers in Graceville

Marquis White scored 14 points
to lead Graceville, with Diquan
Johnson adding 12 and Devonte
Merritt scoring 10.
Edward Howard had 15 points
to pace the Seahawks, with Scha-

The game was close in the early

A game for the ages
Malone's Antwain Johnson breaks toward the basket during Tuesday night's game.
Murff's 3 lifts
in regional classic
BY DUSTIN KENT
MALONE Senior guard Chris Murff
hit a 3-pointer with 3.6 seconds left to
help Malone complete a 15-point sec-
ond half comeback in a thrilling 50-48
victory over Holmes County on Tuesday
The win advanced the Tigers to the 1A
Regional Final where it will play host to
the Chipley Tigers on Saturday night at
That game, while incredibly intrigu-
ing on paper, will have a lot to live up
to if it is to equal Tuesday night's instant
classic that featured three lead changes
in the final period.
The Blue Devils led 28-15 at half-
time thanks to 22 first half points by
guard Jordan McCallister, and pushed
the margin to 15 on two free throws by
Chris Walker to start the third quarter.
But Malone stormed back with a 19-7
run to end the period and get to within
The Tigers took the lead on a lay-up
by freshman Antwain Johnson with
7:07 remaining, but found themselves
down 48-47 with 20.7 seconds left in
Malone moved the ball around the pe-
rimeter until LaDarius McElroy found
Murff in the right corner, and the senior
knocked in the triple in the waning sec-
onds to put his team up for good.
The Blue Devils had one last chance,
but McCallister lost the ball out of
bounds while dribbling up the right
sideline and turned it back over to
Malone with 0.4 seconds on the clock.
All Malone had to do was inbound the
ball to bring the game to an end, and
bring the Tiger fans out to mid court en
"For a first round playoff game, I don't
think anyone could ask for more than
that. I'm sure people would be glad to
pay their $7 to see that again,"
Tigers coach Steven Welch said after
The coach said the conversation at
halftime was a simple one that involved
"I asked them, 'Is this how it's go-
ing to end? After all the hard work this
year, is this the way you want it to end?'
I told.them that we were going to win
the game, and the kids believed," Welch
said. "They never quit."
They certainly had reason to believe
it might not be their night in the early
going, as McCallister unleashed a bar-
rage of long range jumpers in the first
half, making three 3-pointers in the
first quarter alone, and scoring 22 of his
team's 28 points.
"They really jumped on us," Welch
said. "The McCallister kid made some
incredible shots. We had a hand in his
face on most of them. He was just on
fire. But credit my kids for hanging in
there and continuing to play."

Hornets fall to West
Gadsden in first round
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Cottondale Hornets saw their
season come to an end Tuesday night
in Quincy, falling to the West Gads-
den Panthers 66-44 in the first round
of the 1A playoffs.
West Gadsden (26-2) advances to
Saturday night's Regional final round
where it will travel to Graceville to
take on the Tigers at 7 p.m.
Cottondale's season ends at 19-9.
The Hornets faced long odds in try-
ing to beat the powerhouse Panthers
on the road where they haven't been
defeated all season, but CHS stayed
within striking distance for much of
the way, trailing by nine at the end of
the second and third quarters.
But a big run by West Gadsden to
start the fourth blew the game open,
and the athletic Panthers cruised
home for yet another lopsided
West Gadsden has now won its last
four games by an average margin of
However, Cottondale coach Chris
Obert said his team gave its best
shot against what he called the
most athletic team he has faced all
"We fought, clawed and scratched
like crazy to stay in the game," the
coach said. "I'm proud of my guys.
They played hard and came out there
with the mentality you have to have
to go into a place like that and pull
an upset. We hung in there going into
the fourth, but we probably needed
to make a couple more shots to make
it closer. I thought we had them on
the ropes a little bit, but we had a bad
spell, they stretched it out real quick,
and we couldn't get back in it."
Charis Fitzgerald scored 18 points
to lead West Gadsden, while Marquis
Brown had 13 and Brandon Shin-
gles 12, including 10 in the fourth
Jerrod Blount had 27 points to lead
the Hornets, who lost in Quincy for
the second time this season.
"It was a great playoff environment.
It was a packed house and a hostile
crowd. It was fun to go over there and
play in something like that," Obert
said. "The kids enjoyed it. It would've
been better to pull off the upset, but
that's a real good team over there. But

apartment with one of my best friends.
We get along great except for one thing:
"Renee" was born with no sense of

except when it comes to the animals.
She forgets to clean the litterbox because
she can't smell it, so I have to remind
her constantly. The odor can become
so unbearable that I no longer allow my
Also, her cats play with their food
trays and water dishes and knock every-
thing onto the floor. She never cleans
it up. I had to confront her about this
because it was attracting bugs. And
when the cats throw up, I'm the one
who ends up cleaning it because I
know she won't do it. It is absolutely
I don't like being confrontational,
and Renee is very argumentative.
Anytime I've tried to address this, it
falls on deaf ears. I've managed to sur-
vive this long as her roommate, so right
At the bridge table, you might walk into
an unexpected storm: A bad trump break.
In this deal, how should South play in
six hearts when East shows up with all five
outstanding trumps? West leads the dia-
mond queen. Declarer wins with dummy's
ace and plays, a heart to his jack, West dis-
carding a diamond.
North's two-no-trump response would
not meet with universal approval, but it
had the huge advantage of telling South
it was a slam deal, which two diamonds
"waiting" would not have done. (Two aces
opposite an unbalanced two-club opening
equals a slam if a fit is found.)
Since South has a club loser, he has to
.draw trumps without loss. But that re-
quires taking two more finesses through
East. How can declarer get to the board two
At trick three, South must lead a lowspade
to dummy's 10. When the finesse wins (the
sun is finally out), he takes a second heart
finesse. South returns to dummy with a
spade, finesses for a third time in trumps,
cashes his top hearts, and claims 12 tricks:
Four spades, five hearts, one diamond and
two clubs. ,
now I am simply biding my time until I
can move out. However, Renee recently
commented that she doesn't want me
to leave when our lease is up. I wouldn't
mind living with her again if she would
give up her cats, but I know that isn't go-
ing to happen, and I'd feel guilty asking
Renee and I have the same circle of
friends, so if I ask around about a new
roommate, she'll hear, and it would hurt
her feelings. I don't want to ruin our
friendship, because she truly is a good
person and an amazing friend. I just
want out of kitty hell.
ALWAYS HOLDING MY NOSE
Dear Nose: You have nothing to lose
by telling Renee that she must take
better care of the cats or you are mov-
ing out. She can clean the litterbox at
regular intervals, whether she smells it
or not. And anything that lands on the
floor is visible to both of you. She may be

Murff hit a jumper to make
it a 5-point game, but Holmes
County answered with a 7-3
run, with a bank shot by Walker
making it 37-28.
McElroy responded with a 3-
pointer and a 3-point play after
a Blue Devils turnover to make
A dunk by Ty Baker started the
fourth, and another turnover by
Holmes County led to Johnson's
lay-up to give Malone its first
lead since the first minute of
McCallister put the Blue Dev-
ils back up with a floater in
the lane, and a,3-point play by
Walker gave Holmes County a
44-41 lead with 3:37 remaining.
A short jumper by Ty Baker
cut it back to one, but McCallis-
ter found Russ under the basket
for two to push the margin back
After Ty Baker's 3-point play
tied it back up, Holmes Coun-
ty went to its best player and
Walker delivered with a turn-
around shot off glass to put
the Blue Devils up two with 47
On Malone's next possession,
Chai Baker was fouled on a 3-
pointer with 28.1 seconds left,
but made just 1 of 3 free throws,
forcing the Tigers to foul.
McCallister missed the front
end of the one-and-one, and
Malone brought the ball up the
court and called timeout to set
up the final play.
Welch said' he wasn't sur-
prised that the ball found its
way to Murff, and was even less
surprised that the shot went
"How many big shots has that
.kid hit for us the last two years?"
the coach said. "Guys like Murff
and Austin Williams, those
guys are the heart of the team.
There's not a more respected
kid in that locker room than
those two. The way they play
with toughness and leadership
and heart, those kids are what
basketball is all about."
And the second half come-
back will now be filed as the
latest chapter in storied his-
tory of Malone'basketball, with
still one more win to go be-
fore the Tigers can make it to
Lakeland to go for a 14'1 state
"The kids deserve all the
credit. It was all what they did.
I didn't have anything to do
with it," Welch said. "They just
decided they didn't want their
season to end."
but I do too. I'm just gonna go
as hard as I can go to try to keep
my team from losing."
McElroy added 11 points for
the Tigers, with Murff and John-
son each adding eight.
McCallister finished with 26
points to lead Holmes County,
scoring the first 12 points of the
game for the Blue Devils.
A 3-pointer byTy Russ made it
15-7 Holmes County, and a long
jumper by McCallister made it
But a last second triple by
Murff in the waning seconds
of the first period cut it to six in
perhaps a bit of foreshadowing
However, McCallister an-
swered with eight more points
in the second period, with his
fourth triple making it 27-15
with 56 seconds on the clock.
Malone started its comeback
early in the third when Walker
picked up his third personal
foul with just over six minutes
on the clock.
Ty Baker stroked a 3-pointer
from the corner to cut it to 12,
and a steal led to a basket by
Austin Williams, who followed
that up with a 3-pointer to cut
it to seven at 30-23 with 4:36 on

Baker, who again delivered one
of his best performances of the
season against the 6 foot, 10
inch Walker, scoring 16 points
and helping limit the Blue Dev-
ils' superstar to 17 points.
Baker played all 32 minutes
and scored seven points in the
fourth quarter, including a cru-
cial 3-point play that tied the
game at 46-46 with 58.9 sec-
onds to play.
"Ty Baker is a warrior," Welch
said after the game. "He played
his tail off."
Younger brother Chai Baker
struggled all night against Hol-
mes County's box-and-one de-
fense, scoring just one point on
a late free throw.
But the elder Baker more
than made up for it, rising to
the occasion for a third time
against Walker after scoring 28
and 22 points in his previous
two match-ups with Holmes
County this season.
"You know he's gonna bring
it," Ty Baker said of Walker.
"He's never beaten us before,
so I knew he would be ready to
play. He brings it every game,
