BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com
A giveaway of foodstuffs hosted by
Mt. Olive Baptist Church of Bascom
and volunteered at by local churches


and organizations fed approximately
435 families on Saturday.
A line of people in need skirted
around the church most of day.
"I never thought I'd see the day where
people are waiting in food lines like to-
day," said Carol Pugh, a congregant at
Southern Community Fellowship.
Despite the long wait times, everyone
remained patient and uncomplaining,
with hugs, smiles and chats shared be-
tween the volunteers and recipients,
said Pastor Henry Fullington.
"We need our community to come
together and care for each other,"


Fullington said. "If we do that, we can
withstand any challenges."
Locals received meats, fresh fruits,
a variety of pastries and other items
from the church. The foodstuffs were
supplied by Kevin Chambliss Crusades.
In his own words, Chambliss works to
"teach churches to give."
"It's my job to feed the flesh so the
pastors out here can feed the soul,"
Chambliss said.
Between 50 and 60 volunteers from
local churches and organizations

Calhoun Chamber Banquet honors leaders, citizens


Special to the Floridan

The 65th Annual Calhoun
County Chamber of Commerce
Membership Banquet was held
Thursday, Feb. 23, at theW.T. Neal
Civic Center in Blountstown.
The event began with a recep-
tion featuring historic photos
and newspaper clippings, fol-
lowed by dinner and an awards
presentation.
Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Pan-
ama City, was the special guest
for the evening, and helped start
the program by presenting Cal-
houn County native and Tuske-
gee Airman Cornelius Davis with
a letter of appreciation and the


Chamber's Pioneer Award for his
service with the Airmen in World
War II.
After the invocation, guests
enjoyed a steak dinner, during
which images captured through-
out the past year were shown in
a slideshow.
Chamber Chair of the Board
Johanna Plummer gave a sum-
mary of successes from the past
year and recognized board mem-
bers rotating off the board this
term: Joey Peacock, Harry Rog-
ers and Dan Yoder, who received
a special award for several years
of service as secretary/trea-
surer. New members beginning
their board terms are Thomas


Flowers, Cindy Reese and the
Rev. Jim Jines.
Terri Waldron was presented
with the Bobby Clark/Board
Member of the Year award for her
commitment to the Chamber.
Doris Traylor with Keep Cal-
houn County Beautiful present-
ed two Grow & Glow awards:
Jeffrey Seay with the First Baptist
Church's House and Grounds
Committee for their latest proj-
ect; and Sheriff David Tatum, for
his renovation of the "blue build-
ing" and its grounds.
Edwin Strawn, president of
Blountstown Main Street, rec-
ognized Preble-Rish Inc. with
the Visionary Award for their


donation of space to the Cham-
ber of Commerce for the Preble-
Rish Gallery.
Blountstown Fire Chief Ben
Hall presented the Volunteer of
the Year award to his friend and
hero, Kinard Volunteer Fire De-
partment Chief Doyle Daniels.
Daniels has served as chief of
the department for more than
30 years, performing numerous
tasks beyond the scope of his
duties with the fire department.
The final award, Outstand-
ing Citizen of the Year, was pre-
sented to Frances Price. The
award is given to someone who
has worked, promoted or vol-
unteered with great effort for


the citizens of Calhoun County
to create a better quality of life.
Over the years, Price has given of
her time, her energy, her heart,
and certainly her biscuits (she
has mastered the art of prepar-
ing the perfect cathead biscuit
on the antique wood-burning
stove at the Settlement, mak-
ing more than 800 biscuits a day
during Folk Life Days). "Gran,"
as she's commonly known, has
a huge family, but acts as moth-
er, grandmother and caregiver
to countless members of her
community.
The event closed with a mu-
sical tribute to PriCe by her
daughters.

Lawmakers cut caim sought for paralyzed boy


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Flori-
da lawmakers have sharp-
ly reduced compensation
in a claims bill for a Colo-
rado boy who suffered
catastrophic injuries due
to negligence by a pub-
lic hospital where he was
born in Fort Myers.
The Senate Rules Com-
mittee on Monday also
approved a claims bill that
would let the city of Tal-
lahassee pay $2.4 million
to the parents of an un-
dercover police informant
who was murdered in a
botched drug sting.
The panel reduced to
$15 million a proposed
$30.8 million payment
that a jury awarded to
14-year-old Aaron Ed-
wards for negligence by
Lee Memorial Health Sys-
tem. A House commit-
tee last week voted for an
even lower figure of $10
million.
Sen. Anitere Flores, a
Miami Republican who is
sponsoring the Senate ver-
sion (SB 10), was encour-
aged, though, because the
House companion (HB
965) was advancing in that
chamber after failing to
act last year on a bill that
would have paid Aaron
$13 million. She said she
was confident that the
chambers could agree on
a figure between $10 mil-
lion and $15 million.
"I don't want to say that
I'm disappointed, but I do


"I don't want to say that rm disappointed,
but Ido know that thejury was correct. I
can only hope that at the end of al this, my
son gets what is going to help him."
Mitzi Roden,
Aaron Edwards' mother


knowthat the jury was cor-
rect," said Aaron's mother,
Mitzi Roden. "I can only
hope that at the end of all
this, my son gets what is
going to help him."
The money will be used
to buy an annuity so Aaron
will Have enough money
for therapy and around-
the-clock care the rest of
his life. Roden currently
provides that care, even
taking him- with her to a
shop where she works as a
pet groomer.
Aaron, who now lives
with his mother in Canyon
City, Colo., suffers from ce-
rebral palsy, spasticity and
other disabilities, the re-
sult of brain damage due
to overdoses of Pitocen, a
drug his mother received
to induce labor over her
objections. Aaron is very
bright but is confined to a
wheelchair and unable to
speak or use his arms and
legs.
He can communicate
with his eyes through
a computer similar to
what's used by renowned
British scientist Stephen
Hawking.
"Imagine being in a
wheelchair for life," Aaron


told lawmakers in a Hawk-
ing-like electronic voice. "I
am living that. Please pass
my bill."
The hospital system for
the first time Monday of-
fered to pay $5 million
over a span of five years,
but the Senate panel re-
jected that proposal.
Flores argued that figure
would be insufficient. She
noted a jury awarded $31
million and that verdict
was affirmed by an appel-
late court. The hospital
system made its offer only
after it was apparent the
Legislature would approve
Aaron's claim, Flores said.
Florida law limits claims
against state and local
governments to $200,000,
which is all Aaron and his
mother have received so
far, without the Legisla-
ture's approval.
Sen. Garrett Richter, R-
Naples, offered the $5 mil-
lion proposal. He argued
the not-for-profit hospi-
tal system, which has no
insurance, would have to
reduce services it provides
to indigent and Medicaid
patients including chil-
dren to pay Aaron's claim.
"We don't have any mad


money," said Lee Memorial
lobbyist Mac Stipanovich.
He acknowledged the
hospital system has hun-
dreds of millions of dol-
lars in reserves but said
those funds in some
cases are merely liabili-
ties on its balance sheet
and in others are needed
to back up commitments
such as bonds and health
insurance.
The committee voted 7-
4 for the bill, which now
goes to the full Senate. The
House companion also is
awaiting a floor vote.
Legislation (SB 44) that
would authorize Tallahas-
see to compensate Irving
Hoffman and Marjorie
Weiss for the murder of
their 23 -year-old daughter,
Rachel Hoffman, cleared
the committee on a 10-1
vote although Senate Spe-
cial Master John G. Van
Landingham has recom-
mended against passage.
Van Landingham wrote
that it was the young
woman's own fault she was
fatally shot when police
lost visual and electronic
contact with her during
the drug sting.
The parents lawyer,
Lance Block, told the pan-
el that Van Landingham's
opinion was out of step
with investigations con-
ducted by a grand jury, the
attorney general's office
and by the police them-
selves, each concluding
that investigators were
negligent. The city also has

agreed to play the claim.
Two men targeted in the
sting are serving life sen-
tences for the killing. The
Legislature in 2009 passed
"Rachel's Law" that set
guidelines for the use of
undercover informants.
Police enlisted Rachel
Hoffman for the danger-
ous mission after threat-
ening her with prison time
because she had been
caught with marijuana
and pills for which she
didn't have a prescription.
Police gave her $13,000
in marked bills to buy
drugs and a gun, which in-
stead was used to kill her,
said Lance Block, a lawyer
for the parents.
He said the suspects,
both convicted felons, had
no drugs and intended to
rob her.

Chairman and CEO of Lockheed Martin, listens to his remarks.






stalls, grounding pilots


The Associated Press

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE The best
fighter pilots from the Air Force, Marines
and Navy arrived in the Florida Panhan-
dle last year to learn to fly the F-35 Joint
Strike Fighter, the most expensive, most
advanced weapons program in U.S. his-
tory. They are still waiting.
Concerns about the stealth jets' safety,
cost overruns and questions about the
entire program's feasibility have delayed
the training and left about 35 pilots
mostly outside the cockpit. The most
the pilots do with the nine F-35s at Eglin
Air Force Base is occasionally taxi them
and fire up the engines. Otherwise their
training is limited to three F-35 flight
simulators, classroom work and flights
in older-model jets. Only a handful of
test pilots get to fly the F-35s.
"The most-frustrated pilot is one who
isn't flying at all," said.Marine Col. Ar-
thur Tomassetti, vice commander of the
fighter wing and a former test pilot for
the F-35 prototype.
Built by Lockheed Martin under a 2001
contract, the F-35 is supposed to replace
Cold War-era aircraft such as the Air
Force's F-16 fighter and the Navy's and
Marines' F/A-18 Hornet. It would also be
sold to many NATO countries and other
U.S. allies.
Costing between $65 million and $100
million each, depending on the version,
the F-35 is described as a generational
leap from older fighter jets. A single-seat
aircraft, it can fly at about 1,050 mph
and, officials say, fight both air-to-air
and air-to-ground significantly better
than its predecessors.
One version can land on an aircraft
carrier while another can hover, landing
on and taking off from a helicopter car-
rier. It carries more fuel and more ord-
nance internally than older fighter jets,
allowing it to maintain stealth, and has
the latest onboard computer systems,
allowing the pilot to control the plane
and communicate with other aircraft
and interact with ground commanders
like never before.
"From a flying perspective, what we
call the stick and rudder is the same for
any platform, but when you integrate
the sensors, the pilot has the capability
to make much better decisions and be
much more precise," said Air Force Col.


Andrew Toth, the training wing's com-
mander. His name adorns one of the
school's F-35s.
And because it is to be used by all
three branches of the U.S. military that
fly fighter jets and by U.S. allies, train-
ing and maintenance could be handled
jointly. That's intended to save money
compared to having separate, paral-
lel maintenance and training groups in
each force.
But just as the program appeared to be
taking off, it was grounded over a variety
of concerns. They range from improper-
ly installed parachutes under the pilots'
ejector seats, to worries at the Pentagon
that there has not been enough testing
of the jets, to ongoing concerns by some
in Congress that the entire F-35 program
is too expensive. Its projected cost has
jumped from $233 billion to an estimat-
ed $385 billion, including development.
Forty-three F-35s have been built and
another 2,443 have been ordered by the
Pentagon.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton
Schwartz said earlier this month that the
Air Force wasn't ready to start student
flights at Eglin.
"The plan will be to start flying, not
training, but to start flying with test-
qualified aviators initially to do what we
call local area orientation," he said. "We
will build to a threshold, which will allow
the training leadership in the Air Force
to declare'ready to train' with other than
test-qualified aviators."
Questions about funding, slow pro-
duction of the aircraft and uncertainty
about overall strategy have contributed
to inefficiencies in money and manpow-
er, said Baker Spring, a defense analyst
with the Washington-based Heritage
Foundation.
Spring said the complicated way the
Pentagon budgeting process worked has
trickled down to the pilots at the school.
"You have people out there twid-
dling their thumbs waiting for planes,
This contributes to the high unit costs,"
Spring said.
All of this has left the first batch of
would-be F-35 pilots in training limbo.
This is supposed to be the first time
fighter pilots from all three branches
train together and they are looking for-
ward to both the competition and learn-
ing from each other.


Number of'F' schools could surge


The Associated Press

MIAMI The number
of Florida schools given
an 'F' could increase dra-
matically under a propos-
al the Board of Education
will consider Tuesday.
The proposed changes
to the school grading cal-
culation have met with
heavy opposition from
superintendents, parents,
and advocates for dis-
abled students and Eng-
lish language learners.
Under the changes,
schools where less than 25
percent of students score
as proficient in reading
on. the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test
would automatically be
given an'E'
Also, the proficiency
of special education stu-
dents and English lan-
guage learners would
be counted toward the
school's grade, rather than
just their learning gains.
State Department of
Education projections in-
dicate the number of 'F'
schools would increase
from 38 to 268 if adopted.
That projection included


grades for centers that
educate disabled students,
a proposal that was later
scrapped amid resistance
from parents and school
leaders.
"It would be particularly
devastatingforourschools
in the urban core primar-
ily, but also have a nega-
tive effect on our schools
districtwide," said Nikolai
Vitti, assistant superin-
tendent of Miami-Dade
Public Schools, where the
number of failing schools
is expected to jump from
five to 50.
The amendment is be-
ing proposed in light of
changes to the FCAT and
the waiver Florida re-
ceived from the No Child
Left Behind law.
In December, Board
of Education members
passed higher scores for
attaining proficiency on
the state's standardized
test in math and reading.
In January, the U.S. De-
partment of Education
approved Florida's request
for a waiver from No Child
Left Behind.
NowFloridawillbe using
the state's annual school


grading system as the pri-
mary measurement to de-
termine how well a school
is doing and whether any
interventions are neces-
sary. The school grades
were established under
former Gov. Jeb Bush and
have been issued since
1999.
"Whenever we've made
changes to Florida's sys-
tem over the last decade,
you've seen peak, a change
will come, then a valley,
and over time, it will peak
again," Education Com-
missioner Gerard Robint
son said.
Opponents of the new
grading calculation say it
will unfairly penalize the
most vulnerable students.
They note that it's being
proposed in the middle of
a school year and with lit-
tle input from educators,
parents or communities.
"As a principal said to
me, 'It's as if I've been
coaching my team for a
5K since August and on
race day they've told us it's
a triathlon," said Deborah
Gianoulis, chair of Save
Duval Schools, an advoca-
cy group in Jacksonville.

OLD WOOLWORTH BUILDING GETS RENOVATED


MARK SKINNNER/FLORIDAN
ordan Burke (right) and Amber Schreffler sweep up debris during a demolition and clean-out day at the oldWoolworth building by
parishioners from Rivertown Community Church Saturday. The building, located in Rivergate Shopping Center, was donated to the
church by Lloyd Tatum. Parishioners removed ceiling tiles, their support frames and the building's light fixtures, along with other tasks. By
the time the work was done, 10 Dumpsters and two semi-trailers were filled with debris removed from the building. Two stages of renovation
are planned for the building. The first will create office spaces and is already underway. The second, which is still in the planning stages, will
convert the rest of the building into an auditorium and classrooms.

Counterfeit bills, like these 20s, are beginning to appear

Counterfeit



bills passing


'pente

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Merchants in Marianna
are being victimized by at
least one person passing
counterfeit bills.
Banks inside and out-
side the city have report-
ed multiple counterfeit
bills in the deposits made
by Marianna storekeep-
ers over the past two or
three weeks, and there's a
disturbing trend; the bills
are passing the "pen test"
that merchants use to de-
termine whether they are
real.
That's making the store-
keepers more vulnerable,
but the Marianna Police
Department has made
some strides in its inves-
tigation, gather informa-
tion that could help in
stemming the tide.
The small bills, in de-
nominations of $5, $10
and $20, are missing the
hologram embedded in
all valid bills. Merchants
can hold the money to the
light to determine if the
hologram is there.
MPD investigators have
also identified some serial
*numbers associated with
the fake bills, with the
numbers repeating.
On $20s, merchants
should be looking for: EJ
78253406, JB 36949532A,
II 23885496A and EA
00211338*.
On $10s, they should
look for GE 43091465A,
JK37964349A and IE
01111055B.
On $5s, they should look
for HF 391990952B.
Authorities say the
counterfeits discovered
so far add up to less than
$1,000, but more bogus
bills could be circtilaing
in the community.
Anyone who receives
bills with these se-
rial numbers is asked to
.Jcontact the Marianna


st'

Police Department as'
soon as safely possible.
Store clerks and others
who suspect they've re-
ceived a counterfeit are
asked to help police by
closely observing the
physical characteristics of
the person who offered it,
the time the bill was giv-
en, what items may have
been purchased with the
money, and a description
of the vehicle the individ-
ual was traveling in.

Graceville's Diquan Johnson makes a pass during the Tigers' game against

Graceville's run comes to an end


BY DUSTIN KENT
Sdkent@jcfloridan.com
The Graceville Tigers saw their
season come to an end Saturday
night at home, falling to the West
Gadsden Panthers 66-49 in the
lA Regional finals.
With the win, the Panthers
(27-2) advanced to today's state.
semifinal game against Chipley
in Lakeland at 9 a.m.
Graceville's season ended at
16-13. *
The Panthers jumped out to
a 31-7 lead to start the game,
but the Tigers clawed their way


back into it to cut it to 38-22 at
halftime.
West Gadsden's lead was cut
to 12 at the end of three, and
Graceville was able to get back to
within seven on multiple occa-
sions in the fourth.
However, just as they had done
in their playoff opener against
Cottondale, the Panthers pulled
away late and advanced once
again.
"They're just very athletic and
a very good shooting team,"
Graceville coach Matt Anderson
said of West Gadsden. "They're


high pressure, and we didn't do
a good job of handling that early.
We finally started executing and
going at them instead of playing
on our heels and we got back in
it. We just couldn't get the shots
to go down that we needed to get
over the hump."
Charis Fitzgerald scored 23
points to lead the Panthers, with
Sidarius Berrium adding nine.
Marquis White had 14 points
to lead the Tigers, and Rasheed
Campbell scored 12.

Malone coach proud
of season despite
premature end
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Malone Tigers suffered
one of their most dishearten-
ing losses in recent memory
Saturday night at home, fall-
ing to the Chipley Tigers 73-63
in the 1A Regional finals.
However, Malone coach
Steven Welch said that he was
proud of the way his team
played Saturday and through-
out the season, and had no re-
grets about'his or his players'
approach to the game.
Malone, which finished the
year at 25-4, lost largely due
to the career night of Chipley's
senior guard Ryan McIntyre,
who knocked down seven
3-pointers en route to a 23-
point night.
McIntyre made five of his tri-
ples in the second half to help
the visiting Tigers overcome
a nine-point third-quarter
deficit and advance to today's
state semifinals in Lakeland.
With so much of the defen-
sive game plan geared around
stopping the dynamic Chipley
duo of Alex Hamilton and
Cameron Dozier, Welch said
it was just too much to over-
come having another player
have the kind of performance
that McIntyre had.
"When you've got a guy who
averages six or seven points
per game and he makes seven
threes and scores 23 points,
what are you going to do?"
the coach said. "I thought we
did a deceit job on Alex and
Cameron.
"They had 19 and 18, but
those are manageable num-
bers. But when a third player
steps up like that and really
goes off, it makes it really hard
to beat them."
Malone did have its oppor-
tunities, missing several shots
near the basket in the game's
opening minutes, and sur-
rendering several offensive re-
bounds to Chipley, with Kobe
McCrary consistently hurting
Malone on the boards.
There were also some care-
less turnovers against Chi-
pley's press in the second half,
but Welch said that his team
could have probably survived
all of that if not for the 10 shots
that Chipley made from long

distance on the night.
"We missed too many easy
buckets and had some terrible
turnovers, but give them cred-
it. They made some big shots,
and their team speed was as
good as anybody we played all
year," the coach said. "Hats off
to McIntyre. Our game plan
centered around Cam and
Alex, and I think they had to
work for everything. But Mc-
Intyre made a big difference.
Hats off to the kid. They just
shot it so well.
"But if we played them to-
morrow, we'd play them the
same exact way."
Chai Baker scored 28 points
in the game to lead Malone,
with Ty Baker adding 14.

season for Malone was noth-
ing short of dominant virtu-
ally all year, with Saturday's
loss the first that the team suf-
fered to an in-state opponent
all year long.
While the ultimate goal of
a trip to Lakeland and a state
championship will go un-
fulfilled, Welch said that he

couldn't be prouder of all the
steps his players took during
the course of the year.
"One of our goals was defi-
nitely to get to Lakeland, but to
see these guys and how every
one of them were better this
year than they were last was
great," he said. "We did a lot
of off the court stuff trying to
build character and promote
a family atmosphere, and I'm
so proud of what we did as far
as maturing as a team.
"This is a great group to
coach. I've had teams in the
past where you were glad for
the season to be over, but
this isn't one of them. I wish I
could coach these guys from
now on. I'm extremely proud
of them. We had a great year."

Lady Indians hit losing skid after hot start to season

MArY, SKINFI oM/II IDAN
Jasmine Tapksley scoops up a
grounder for Chipola at a recent
game.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.comn
After suffering just one loss
through the first 22 games of the
season, the Chipola Lady Indi-
ans dropped three of their last
four over the weekend in Pana-
ma City at Frank Brown Park.
Chipola (22-4) took a 16-game
winning streak into Saturday's
game against Wallace State-
Hanceville, but fell 3-1, with
Chattanooga State dealing the
Lady Indians a second straight
loss 9-1 Saturday.
But the Lady Indians respond-
ed Sunday with a big 13-0 win
over Gadsden State in five in-
nings, and got their second


no-hitter of the season in the
process.
Eron Milton tossed the first
no-no for Chipola this season
in a 7-0 win over Chattahoochee
.Valley on Feb. 18, but it was two
Lady Indians pitchers who com-
bined for the five-inning no-hit-
ter Sunday.
Eva Voortman started and
went the first four innings, walk-
ing one and striking out three,
with Lindsey Hamlin pitching
a perfect fifth inning with two
strikeouts.
Offensively, Chipola got a big
performance from sophomore
slugger Chelsey Steedley, who
went 3 for 4 with a home run,


five RBI and two runs scored.
Steedley's homer came on a
two-run shot in the bottom of
the fourth inning, but she also
added an tBI single in the sec-
ond and a two-RBI double in the
third.
Jasmine Tanksley also had two
hits and two RBI, and Sayumi
Akamine was 2 for 3 with a run
and an RBI.
Chipola got another shot at
Chattanooga State on Sunday,
but again came up short in a 3-
1 loss.
Michele Hester started in the
circle for the Lady Indians and
gave up three earned runs one
in the third and two in the fifth


- on six hits, no walks and three
strikeouts.
It was a solid outing for the
freshman pitcher, but the
Chipola offense was unable to
generate much in support.
The Lady Indians posted just
four hits as a team, with an RBI
single by Akamine to score Hay-
ley Parker in the fourth inning
the only offense for Chipola.
Steedley, Parker and Chandler
Seay were the only other Chipo-
la players with a hit.
Chipola will next travel to
Culman, Ala., Friday for games
against Central Alabama, Co-
lumbia State and Alabama
Southern. L


Chipola


Indians able to

punch ticket to

the postseason

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Chipola Indians punched
their ticket to the postseason
Saturday night at the Milton H.
Johnson Health Center, a feat
that looked like a long shot at
best earlier in the season.
Despite starting the Panhandle
Conference schedule 1-3, the
Indians will be in the state tour-
nament next week thanks to a
67-47 victory over the Gulf Coast
Commodores.
The win combined with a Pen-
sacola State loss to Tallahassee
allowed the Indians to finish 7-5
in the conference and clinch the
league's second playoff spot.
If the Pirates had beaten TCC,
then Pensacola and Chipola
would have to have played a one-
game playoff Monday in Nicev-
ille to determine the runner-up.
"We're pretty glad we didn't
have to come back and play
Monday night," Indians coach
Jake Headrick said. "I think that
was a big relief. For the guys to
do what they've done over the
last month when we had basical-
ly zero room for error was amaz-
ing. They've given us everything
they've got mentally, physically
and emotionally.
"I'm so proud that they were
able to do something like this
when I'm not sure how many
people really thought it was
doable."
The Indians won their confer-
ence opener over Tallahassee,
but their two leading scorers
starting center Joseph Uchebo
and starting power forward Ja-
son Carter both suffered knee
injuries in that game.
Carter was eventually ruled
out for the season, while Uchebo
missed the next five games, four
of whichwere losses.
But Uchebo returned for the
Feb. 4 home game against Pen-
sacola State a Chipola win- and
the Indians won five of their last
six games, including three on the
road, with the only loss coming
to conference champion North-
west Florida State.
"We faced some major adver-
sity with losing Jason for the sea-
son and never really knowing if
and when we would get Joseph
back," Headrick said. "But we
had guys like Kruize Pinkins, Earl
Watson, Tevin Baskin, and Jerel
Scott who stepped up, and so
many guys believed in what we
were trying to do.
"We were lucky enough to get

Lady Indians lose big in season finale


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Chipola Lady Indians end-
ed their season with a whimper
Saturday night at home, falling
to Gulf Coast State 75-51 in a
game that was clearly meaning-.
ful to only one of the teams.
With the win, the Lady Com-
modores clinched a share of the
Panhandle Conference tite with
Pensacola State, with Gulf Coast
State earning the top seed for
next week's state tournament at
Chipola.
There the Lady Commodores
sent their retiring legendary
coach Roonie Scovel out with yet
another state title to add to her
collection
For Chipola, however, Saturday
marked the end of a frustrating
season that was ultimately de-
railed by consecutive losses to
Northwest Florida State and Pen-
sacola State with its postseason
hopes hanging in the balance.
The loss to Pensacola State
eliminated the Lady Indians
from postseason contention,
making Saturday's Homecoming
battle with a Gulf Coast team still
gunning for a league title a diffi-
cult undertaking.
"It was just a tough situation,"
Chipola coach David Lane said.
"To play a game in which you
know it's your last game coming
*into it and you're rot necessarily
playing for anything substantial,
it's tough for kids to really get
up for those games and be fully
motivated.
"Gulf Coast needed a win,

Gulf Coast finished the confer-
ence season with a mark of 9-3,
while Chipola was 5-7.
It's the third straight year that
the Lady Indians have not quali-


fled for the state tournament,
an event they won in four of the
previous five seasons.
Lane said that he believed the
lack of success of prior teams has
been compounded with succes-
sive teams, including this year's
group.
"I think a lot of that is we had
sophomores who didn't have
success last year, and the sopho-
mores we had last year weren't
successful as freshmen either,"
he said. "It's just one of those
things where if we can get in
again, we can get back on a run
of making it there. But you can
get on a roll both positively and
negatively.
"We need to get back in and
keep feeding it and feeding it. But
it works the same way when you
don't get in. We've got to have a
breakthrough year and get back
in it."
The Lady Indians will have to
do that with a virtually brand
new team, as Lane said that
freshman shooting guard Kris-
tine Brance would likely be the
only heavy rotation player to re-
turn next season.
That makes the spring and
summer recruiting seasons all
the more important for Chipola.
"We're losing a lot of size, so
finding some post play will be
crucial," Lane said. "We also
need some depth at point guard.
But with JUCO recruiting, you
have to find a little bit of every-
thing. There are some kids we
like, but you never know what's
going to happen."

Lady Tigers get first taste of victory against Emmanuel Christian


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Malone Lady Tigers' soft-
ball team got its first win of the
season Friday night in Dothan,
beating Emmanuel Christian
9-6.
The Lady Tigers lost their sea-
son opener 18-5 to Munroe on
Feb. 13 and had their second
scheduled game against Cot-
tondale canceled last week.
In Friday's road contest, Malo-
ne got a boost with the return
of its players from the Lady Ti-
gers' basketball team, which ad-
vanced to the 1A Regional finals


before losing to Holmes County
on Feb. 18.
One of those returning players
was freshman Jakivia Hearns,
who started in the circle for
Malone and picked up the
win, going all seven innings
and allowing five earned runs
on four hits, six walks and five
strikeouts.
"I thought she did well for
coming out there after not
practicing a whole lot," Malone
coach Greg Ford said of Hearns.
"For not having a lot of team
back with us, shedid a real good
job. I thought we played pretty


well overall as a team."
Big sisterVenisha Hearns was 2
for 4 with two RBI and two runs
in her return to action, while
Kayla Lewis finished with three
hits, and Cailyn Haight, Sheyan-
na Chambliss and Shakira Smith
all had two hits each.
It was a slow start for Malo-
ne, however, as Jakivia Hearns
struggled through a two-run
Emmanuel Christian first in-
ning, giving up three walks and
a two-RBI double.
The Lady Tigers tied the game
in the top of the third with
Chambliss getting a hit and


scoring on a ground ball by Lew-
is, and Jakivia Hearns adding an
RBI single to make it 2-2.
Emmanuel Christian went
back on top with a run in the
bottom of the frame, but Malo-
ne stormed back with six runs in
the fourth to take control of the
game.
Venisha Hearns tied the game
with an RBI single, and Lewis'
two-RBI single made it 5-3.
Smith added another two-run
hit to make it a four-run lead,
and later scored,on an error to
put the Lady Tigers up 8-3.
Venisha Hearns added her


second RBI single of the day
to score Angelica Livingston in
the fifth, with Emmanuel Chris-
tian rounding out the scoring
with two runs in the bottom
of the fifth and another in the
seventh.
"For our first game back with
all of our players, I thought we
did well," Ford said. "We were
excited to get a win."
Malone's scheduled game with
Cottondale on Monday was also
canceled, and the Lady Tigers
will return to action Wednes-
day at home against district foe
Central at 4 p.m.

Cousins eager to put collision with Posey in past


The Associated Press

JUPITER, Fla. Con-
sidering the scorn heaped
upon Scott Cousins, it's no
wonder his back gave out
last summer.
Injury and infamy made
2011 difficult for Cousins,
a reserve outfielder with
the Miami Marlins. He's
healthy again and glad
time has tempered the
hostility directed his way
after he collided in May
with San Francisco Giants
catcher Buster Posey, who
suffered a season-ending
left leg injury.
Cousins' season ended
less than three weeks
later because of a herni-
ated disc unrelated to the
collision. He's not eager
to revisit a period that
was painful in more ways

"It's past," he said Mon-
day. "That was last year.
This is a new season for
me and Buster."
Posey has recovered
from the injury, which
included a broken bone
and three torn ankle liga-
ments. Giants fans vilified
Cousins, who endured
death threats and a bout
of depression while ex-
pressing only remorse for
what happened.
"He's a nicer guy than
me," teammate Logan
Morrison said. "It was dif-
ficult for me watching him
go through it."
Cousins insists moving
beyond the episode wasn't
difficult, because he did
nothing wrong. When
Posey tried to block the
plate, Cousins slammed


points and 15 rebounds
in just 17 minutes in the
win over Gulf Coast, with
Pinkins leading the way
with 13 points. Watson, Mo
Lee and Trantell Knight all
had nine points for the In-
dians, who led by as many
as 17 points in the first half
before extending the lead
to 56-34 midway through
the second half.


for Anderson as coach.
Graceville finished sec-
ond in District 3 during
the regular season and
won the district title be-
fore beating South Walton
in the first round of the
playoffs.
Anderson said he would
have liked to have seen his
team take advantage of
some of its chances against
West Gadsden, but overall
he was pleased with what


into him and scored the
winning run.
"I know in my heart what
I did was the right play,"
Cousins said. "You can
look yourself in the mirror
for that."
However, while Posey
has watched replays
multiple times, Cousins
said he has never seen
the play. He apologized
repeatedly for the out-
come and tried to contact
Posey, but they've had no
communication.
"He has moved on,
and I wish him the best,"
Cousins said. "He seems
healthy. Good for him."
Posey, the 2010 NL Rook-
ie of the Year, is back on
the field at Giants camp
in Arizona. Cousins is
also back after an offsea-
son of rehabilitation, his


While the regular sea-

Cousins said his goal
is to crack the starting

team touted as a playoff
contender. But he said he
won't be discouraged if he
finds himself in the mi-

SEC denders renew at NFL o


SEC defenders renew rivalry at NFL combine


The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS The LSU-Alabama
rivalry didn't end in New Orleans. It
moved to Indianapolis.
After playing twice for the No. 1 rank-
ing last season, repeatedly being dubbed
college football's two best defenses and
eventually settling the national cham-
pionship between them, the top defen-
sive players from those teams are ready
to start Round 3 at the NFL scouting
combine.
"Right now, it's just mental, but when
we get back on the field, it's going to be
just like the way it was," Alabama corner-
back Dre Kirkpartick said Sunday with a
smile.
Scouts couldn't ask for a better
scenario.
Players from both teams are out to
impress team executives, hoping to im-
prove their draft stock.
The stakes couldn't be higher.
The winners will be rewarded with a
bigger paycheck and perhaps some big-
time endorsement deals, too.
Bragging rights are also in play.
Kirkpatrick and LSU's Morris Claiborne
are going head-to-head to become the
No. 1 cornerback chosen in April. Ala-
bama safety Mark Barron and outside
linebacker Courtney Upshaw are gener-
ally regarded as the No. 1 players at their
positions, as is LSU defensive tackle Mi-
.chael Brockers. And high school recruits
undoubtedly will pay attention to which
school produces more NFL players and
the highest draft picks, maybe giving the
current prospect's alma maters a recruit-
ing bump.
That's not all.
Six of the 59 defensive, backs invited
to Indy came from -these two SEC pro-
grams, and that doesn't include LSU
Heisman Trophy finalist Tryann Ma-
thieu, a sophomore.
For the Tigers, it's a chance to reaffirm
their self-proclaimed reputation as DB
University.
"Patrick (Peterson) gave us the name,
and we just kept it going," Claiborne
said, laughing after one of his teammates
ruined the secret. .
But it's not all going to be jabs and
trash-talking around Lucas Oil Stadium.

"I'm already walking on it. I'm expect-
ed to have a full recovery within the next
month," Boykin said. "I'm still deciding

looking at some time in April.
But the feature attractions are still the
defensive guys from LSU and Alabama,
who have been trading blows and barbs
since last season began.
LSU won Round 1, a 9-6 overtime vic-
tory at Alabama.
Alabama returned the favor in January,
a 21-0 victory in the first BCS national
championship game pitting teams from
the same conference.
And this week, some of the same play-
ers will participate in what they antici-
pate will be a friendlier go-around at the
combine.
"It really is like old times," LSU safety
Brandon Taylor said. "We've got a good
chemistry together, us and the Alabama
guys, because we know we gave it our
all this year and we gave the fans a good
show this year. It will be fun."

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My wife and I have been
married for 20 years. She has a grown
,daughter from her first marriage. I
watched "Lori" grow up and love her as
Smy own..
My wife always has been fiercely defen-
sive of Lori. I can't say anything remotely
negative or critical about her without
risking a big argument. Even the sug-
gestion of having Lori help around the
house or clean up her room would cause
a fight.
Lori is a good kid, but she has never
wanted for anything. My wife makes no
secret of the fact that Lori comes first in
her life.
Lori is now in her early 20s and is a se-
nior in college. Even though she is taking
only two classes a week, she doesn't have
a job and is unmotivated to get one. My
wife makes all kinds of excuses for her.
Meanwhile, we pay all of her expenses,
including her rent.
I'm disabled and on a small ficed
income,arid my wifi is self-employed.
We struggle with ourfinances while Lori


lives a'carefree life. It is causing friction
in our marriage. We tried counseling,
but my wife refused to discuss anything
related to Lori and quit going.
Lori calls her mother every hour, and
my wife encourages it. Lori has no other
friends, and all of my wife's attentions are
focused on her daughter. I get very little.
Is this normal behavior?
CONCERNED FOR OUR FUTURE

Dear Concerned: No, it's not normal for
a college-age daughter to have no friends
but Mom,.and for a mother to-encourage
so much dependence.
Such an enmeshed relationship is
not onlybad for your marriage, it also
is crippling for Lori. Instead of helping
her daughter learn self-reliance, Mom
is being selfish by holding Lori so close
that she deliberately prevents her from
becoming an independent adult.
We hope you can make your wife un-
derstand that this is poor parenting and
in no one's best interest, especially her
daughters.

Bridge,,:

When a defender uses a trump card, declarer
should try to make sure he is ruffing a loser, not
a winner. And that is the key pointto this deal..
., Against six hearts, West leads the club queen.
Since there seem to be 12 top tricks (two spades,,
five hearts, three diamonds and two clubs), West
South takes that.trick with his king, cashes his j 96 4
'heart ace and plays a trump to dummy's queen, 1 4
learning tiLhe has an unexpected loser there '
when WeMIscards a spade. How should de- + 108
clarer continue? 4 Q J 10
North's response depends upon partnership
agreement. When two no-trump is natural and
game-forcing, it is easy. If two no-trump would
be the Jacoby Forcing Raise, North must start
with two clubs (unless three no-trump would
show 13 to 15 points and 4-3-3-3 distribution). D
An easy-looking contract has suddenly be- V
come difficult. The secret is not to permit East
to ruff a diamond honor. Declarer should cash South
the diamond ace and play a diamond toward 1
his hand. East ought to discard, so South wins 3
with his king, returns to the dummy in a black 4 NT
suit, and leads the last diamond. Again, East 6 V
should pitch, but declarer wins and ruffs his
last diamond on the board to lose only that one O
trump trick.

Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Be extremely care-
ful not to let pessimistic
thinking dominate your
optimistic viewpoint.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- In some instances you'll
be extremely kind, while
in other cases the Scrooge
in you might come to the
fore.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Be careful what you say
and to whom. Someone
might quote your com-
ments out of context and
end up hurting both of
you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- If you're not careful,
there is a good chance that
you'll be intimidated by
your own imagination. Of
course, this can be avoided
if you don't misuse your
fertile mind.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Sensing a friend's fragile
mood, the timing might not
be exactly right to remind
him or her about an over-
due financial obligation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- When seeking advice
concerning a troublesome
situation, don't settle for
just one person's opinion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- The ideas or suggestions
of someone in the family
might be superior to your
thoughts on handling a
delicate situation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- The road you're on might
be difficult, but you can
overcome any obstacles
and will even take pride in"
doing so.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) An arrangement that
you're involved in might be
of dubious value, so don't
rely upon another person
too heavily.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) When it comes
to serving your own self-
interest, you're likely to be
extremely productive, but
if you are required to help
out another, your facul-
ties could suddenly shut
down.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Think twice before
investing in a situation
about which you know lit-
tle to nothing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) If there isn't some-
thing in it for you, you're
apt to be reluctant to ex-
tend yourself in any way.

Rory McIlroy is on the fast track to No. 1


The Associated Press

MARANA, Ariz.- Hunter
Mahan figured out the fuss
over Rory Mcllroy without
any help.
Mahan listened, but
was not surprised, when
fans called out McIlroy's
name along the fairways
of Dove Mountain. There
is a certain appeal about
Boy Wonder that makes
it hard for people not to
stare when he walks,past
them.
Mahan agrees with all
the talk about Mcllroy's
bid to become No. 1. He
just wanted to make sure
it didn't happen at his
expense Sunday in the
Match Play Champion-
ship. Mahan, as much as
any American player, has
seen this day coming.
They first played against
each other three years ago,
in the Match Play it
was Mcllroy's pro debut
in America and the 22-
year-old from Northern
Ireland birdied the last two
holes for a 1-up win in the
second round.
A year later, Mahan and
Zach Johnson faced Mcll-
roy and Graeme McDowell
in a foursomes match at
the Ryder Cup. The Ameri-
cans were 3 down after just
seven holes and wound up
losing.
So when Mahan talked
about his tough road to the
championship match, and
how he had to beat five
great players to get there,
he quickly added, "I've got
to beat one more incred-
ible player to win."


That's what Mahan did
Sunday to capture his sec-
ond World Golf Champi-
onship title.
Even though that win
moves Mahan closer to the
elite amongAmerican golf-
ers, he should understand
why more people left the
West Coast still buzzing
about McIlroy, and how
much better he can get.
McIlroy would have had
to win the Match Play to
replace Luke Donald at
No. 1.
That now seems
inevitable.
"He'll get there," Ma-
han said. "I mean, he's
phenomenal. He's really
talented. He'll be No. 1
eventually. I'm not worried
about it. I'm sure he's not."
Mcllroy could get there
this week with a win at the
Honda Classic, or perhaps
a week later at Doral. The
kid will take a three-week
break after that to get ready
for the Masters, where he
will be among the betting
favorites along with Tiger
Woods and Phil Mickel-
son, who have seven green
jackets between them.
Donald had that look of
inevitability about 'him
last year, too, though it
took him an extra month
when Lee Westwood won
two events against weak
fields. Donald became No.
1 by beating Westwood
in a playoff at Wentworth
at the end of May. He has
been there since.
Now, however, Donald
is starting the new season
slowly, much like West-
wood did a year ago when


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Rory Mcllroy reacts to a putt on the tenth hole while playing
Hunter Mahan in the final round during the Match Play
Championship on Sunday in Marana, Ariz. Mahan won 2 and 1.


he went eight tournaments
out of the top 10. Donald
has three finishes out of
the top 30.
Donald was an inspira-
tion to all the medium-
length hitters by proving
that a player doesn't have
to fly it 300 yards to be No.
1. Then again, power and
consistency beats consis-
tency every time.


That's why McIlroy hap
the look of a No.,1 player.
Since that injury scare
at the PGA Championship
last year, when Mcllroy
tried to hit a 7-iron with a
tree root in the path of his
swing, he had finished out
of the top 10 just once in 11
tournaments. He won an
unofficial event in Shang-
hai against a world-class


field and the Hong Kong
Open. He was runner-up
in the Dunhill Links, Ko-
rea, Abu Dhabi and the
Match Play.
This is the consistency
that the great ones have.
As for his game?
Mcllroy has a swing that's
easy on the eye, packed
with plenty of power. He
has a keen short game,
and there was no bet-
ter example of that in the
semifinal match against
Lee Westwood. He pitched
20 feet away from the flag
to ride the spine of a ridge,
and watched the ball gen-
tly take the slope to a foot
for birdie.
He has looked suspect at
times with short putts, but
from outside 20 feet, just
about every putt looks as if
it has a chance.
The knock on McIlroy is
that he has only four wins
-r- none in Europe in a bit
of anomaly. For someone
who has played primar-
ily the European Tour the
last three years, someone
with that talent should
be expected to win more.
Martin Kaymer, the 27-
year-old German who has
been on tour one year lon-
ger than McIlroy, already
has 10 wins, including a
major and a World Golf
Championship.
But the quality of McIl-
roy's wins can't be ignored
- a 62 in the final round
to win at Quail Hollow and
the U.S. Open.
Just two months after he
collapsed at the Masters
with an 80, McIlroy showed
remarkable resilience by


shattering records at the
U.S. Open for an eight-
shot win at Congressional,
where he finished at 268.
That score wins Memphis,
not the U.S. Open.
Still, it's the failures that
make McIlroy's future look
so limitless.
In the last few years
alone, he tied a major
championship record with
a 63 at St. Andrews. He was
tied for the lead late in the
final round of the PGA
Championship at Whis-
tling Straits, and narrowly
missed a birdie putt on the
last hole that would have
put him in a playoff. Yes,
he shot 80 at the Masters.
Don't forget the 54 holes
that preceded that.
No one is about to lay
down for McIlroy, as Mah-
an showed Sunday at Dove
Mountain.
Westwood squandered
a chance to win in Dubai,
and while Mcllroy in effect
called him out and then
beat him in a high-stakes
semifinal, Westwood looks
in good form. A return
to No. 1 is not out of the
question.
McIlroy, however, has
youth on his side. He
doesn't turn 23 until May.
He is fitter and much
stronger than he was a
year ago.
Odds are he has yet to
hit stride. And while this
doesn't bode well in the
long run for Donald or
Westwood, to see McIlroy
on the verge of becoming
the best in golf is going to
make it that much harder
on Tiger Woods, too.

Rockies move on after 2


disappointing seasons


The Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -Todd Helton is re-
lieved all the hype ofa year ago surround-
ing the big-spending Colorado Rockies
has subsided significantly. -
Slugger Carlos Gonzalez acknowledges
that the $80 million, seven-year contract
he received last offseason and TroyTulow-
itzki's monster deal might have been a dis-
traction for a club that began 2011 as an
NLWest favorite.
"For whatever reason, the Colorado
Rockies don't play with expectations,"
Helton said Monday. "When we play with
expectations, we stink I think we're in a
better spot now as far as that's concerned.
There's not that expectation. There's not
that talk and I don't think these guys are
reading the newspaper about how people
are'going to be and believing the hype."
It sure appears as though the immense
pressure is off this spring. The Rockies are
committed to playing together as a team
focused on finding away to contend again
for the division title they planned to win
last year.
Manager Jim Tracy and the Rockies took
the field for their first full-squad spring
training workout Monday at Salt River
Fields eager for a fresh start after two
disappointing seasons. Tracy has said he
takes responsibility for the failures and
believes he let the team down when times
got tough.
Colorado finished 73-89 last year and
in fourth place in the NLWest. The Rock-
ies came out of the gates 11-2 and by
April 15 looked like the contender ev-
erybody expected, then a 3-10 stretch
from May 1-15 showed there were flaws


and inconsistencies.
Helton is candid about the problems.
"Last year we were trying to be good
players and we definitely didn't play as a
team," he said. "I think we forgot how hard
the process is and just thought, 'Hey, ev-
erybody's going to be one step better and
we're going to go out and be this team.'"
It was another frustrating result on the
heels of an injury-plagued 2010 season
in which the Rockies dropped 13 of their
final 14 games to.crush the club's playoff
hopes and finish at 83-79.
"That's all in the past. We were one of
the favorites to win the division and ev-
erything went opposite," Gonzalez said.
"This year is totally different."
Gonzalez will be the first one to say he
failed to live up to expectations last sea-
son both his own and those of the front
office personnel who rewarded him with
the hefty new contract.
The 26-year-old Gonzalez missed time
with a strained right wrist and was limited
to 127 games. He still batted .295 with 26
home runs and 92 RBIs. He understands
the importance of staying in the lineup for
the Rockies to reach their potential.
"I have to be in there every day for the
whole year. I know that if I play more than
150 games, I'm going to be able to contrib-
ute for the team and do special things," he
said. "I'm not talking about numbers, of
course. The numbers are going to be there
at the end of the year. I have to be able to
stay in there to help the ballclub with any-
thing. I can help this team with a stolen
base, with a throw home, playing defense,
offensively.My mentality right now is to
stay healthy and be out there to support
our team."


Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker watches his players train during a spring training
workout in Goodyear, Ariz.


Reds ready to make run


The Associated Press

GOODYEAR, Ariz. Reclining in'his
office before the Reds' morning work-
outs, Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker
gnawed on one of his trademark tooth-
picks and pulled a pair of red-and-white
No. 12 wristbands over his forearms,
looking much the way he did when he
played.
Baker was relaxed, confident. Didn't.
seem to have a care in the world.
And maybe with good reason.
While the NL Central's top two teams
lost superstars Albert Pujols from St.
Louis, Prince Fielder from Milwaukee
- this winter, the Reds reloaded.
They're ready to make a championship
run.
"I feel like this is our year," second
baseman Brandon Phillips said Sunday.
"We have the talent."
The Reds failed to defend their division
title in 2011, undone in part when an in-


jury to starter Johnny Cueto and illness
to Bronso Arroyo during camp dragged
into the season and one-time MVP Joey
Votto got little protection and had to car-
ry too much of the offensive load.
Cincinnati finished in third place at
79-83, the Reds' 10th losing season in 11
years
General managerWalt Jocketty was not
going to let it become 11 in 12.
With holes to fill, particularly in the
rotation and bullpen, Jocketty got to
work in December. Not long after Pujols
flew from the Cardinals' nest and before
Fielder donned Tigers stripes in Detroit,
Jocketty risked.a significant portion of
Cincinnati's future to improve the Reds'
present.
The moves strengthened Cincinnati's
few apparent weaknesses, and signaled
a belief this season can last deep into
October.
"Hopefully, we'll go to the playoffs and
beyond," Baker said.
