Changing sign ordinance debated
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Jackson County Commissioners
aie pushing their advisory planning
board to meet in special session to
consider two matters brought before
them by business owners Tuesday
Tangela S. Souders, president of
the Wiregrass Federal Credit Union,
wants the county to amend a sign
ordinance that appears to prohibit
signage that use LED, a lighting tech-
nology that wasn't available when
the ordinance was last changed.
Under the current terms of the or-
dinance, the particular illumination
technique isn't addressed but the
terms of the ordinance do strictly
limit lighting. The ordinance is meant
to limit "visible noise," according to
ex-county planner Rick Pettis, who
spoke in favor of changing the ordi-
nance in a way that would allow for
the new technique.
It is also meant to help ensure safe-
ty by limiting the possibility of driver

Technology student association gets awards with its robot, computer projects
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Marianna High School's technology
student association distinguished it-
self at the Florida TSA State Conference
on Feb. 22-26 with its robot, computer
projects and brains.
Vicki Garrett, the TSAs advisor and
the engineering teacher at MHS, said
the competitions are typically domi-
nated by central and south Florida
school districts,which have more than
one TSA. They have district competi-
tions to choose the best team to send.
The Marianna TSA is the only chapter
in the Jackson County School District.
Students worked on their proj-
ects and skills all year, with students
meeting once or twice a week.
Dalton Hendrix and Steven Varnum
and their robot, Collector, placed sec-
ond overall. The team called itself
RUDS or Robot Unicorn Death Squad.
They built Collector at the school and

From staff reports
A man in neighboring Holmes County
was convicted of first-degree murder
this week in the 2010 death of a woman
he kidnapped and burned alive.
The trial of 34-year-old Johnny Mack
"Sketo" Calhoun concluded Tuesday,
with the jury returning its verdict after
three hours' deliberation.
Calhoun, of 1072 Newton Road in
Bonifay, was prosecuted by State Attor-
ney Glenn Hess and Assistant State At-
torney Brandon Young.
The state told panelists that Calhoun
kidnapped Mia Chay Brown on the
night of Dec. 16, 2010, bound her with
duct tape, put her into the trunk of her
car and the next day set the car on fire
and burned her to death inside it.
A penalty phase hearing begins
Wednesday, when jurors will be asked
to recommend a life sentence or death
row for Calhoun. Although the judge
in the case will ultimately decide Cal-
houn's fate, a jury's recommendation is
given considerable weight.
According to the state Department
of Corrections, there are currently no
inmates on death row from Holmes
County. The last men to be executed
from Holmes County were Pleas Dixon
in 1945 and Frank Peterson in 1959.

Special to the Floridan
Florida legislators are battling over an
8 percent tuition increase for colleges
and universities across the state.
The Higher Education Appropriations
Subcommittee proposed an overall
budget of $5.9 billion to the House Ap-
propriations Committee for the 2012-
13 fiscal year, according to the Florida
State funding was reduced across the
board for Florida colleges and univer-
sities, resulting in a $242.6 million, or
5.5 percent, decrease from the 2011-12
Although the proposed tuition in-
crease would further decrease the over-
all state budget, it is being met with
opposition by some state lawmakers.
Florida college tuition has risen over
20 percent in the past three years in re-
sponse to a decreased higher education
Florida college fees have been consis-
tently ranked as some of the lowest in
the nation, a statistic made possible by
the amount of state funding previously
available. However, Florida tuition will
still be low as compared to other states,

Fighter of the
glued to tarmac
-Scripps Howard News Service
T he U.S. cannot always count on having
enemies like the Taliban and the Iraqi insur-
gents, ill-equipped, ill-trained and whose
most effective weapon is a hole in the road with a
bomb in it.
We have not fought a serious military force
since Gulf War I. To the delight and perhaps relief
of war planners, our high-tech weapons and con-
stant training paid off then in defeating an enemy
one that boasted it was the world's fourth-
largest military almost literally in a matter of
For at least 20 years since, the Pentagon has said
the U.S. needs a new air-dominance aircraft to
replace the nation's aging but still highly effective
fleet of F-16s and F/A-18 Hornets.
The initial solution was thought to be the F-22
Raptor, perhaps the world's preeminent fighter
jet. But its soaring cost, $150 million each, and a
maddening series of technical problems caused
Congress to cap production at 183 planes, be-
cause, in the meantime, a cheaper, more flexible
alternative had emerged.
That was the F-35 Advanced Strike Fighter, a
common platform that could be adapted for
air-to-air combat and ground attack, landing on
carriers for the Navy and taking off vertically to
serve the Marines' needs.
Compared to other fighters of its generation,
the F-35 had more sophisticated computers and
Other electronics, was stealthier, had greater
range and could carry more fuel and ordnance.
But the F-35 was supposed to have been in ser-
vice by now- 43 have been built and 2,443 are
on order and, meanwhile, the costs, like the
F-22's, are rising alarmingly, from $233 billion to
an estimated $385 billion for the program.
With the war in Iraq over and the conflict in Af-
ghanistan scheduled to wind down, the Pentagon
budget is no longer as sacrosanct as it once was.
A restive Congress is desperate to find something
to cut, and you would think the military would
want to present lawmakers with something like
a fait accompli to preserve a weapons system the
Pentagon says the nation truly needs.
But the Associated Press has weighed in with
a depressing progress report. Last fall, the Pen-
tagon gathered the top guns from the Air Force,
Marines and Navy at Eglin Air Force Base in the
Florida Panhandle to learn how to put the F-35
now expected to cost between $112 million

he labor market has always
had one particularly frus-
trating conundrum: Young
would-be workers say that employ-
ers won't hire them because they
lack experience, but without that
job they can't get experience.
Now older workers are encoun-
tering a similar frustration: Unem-
ployed workers desperately want
jobs, but employers won't hire them
because they are unemployed.
The rule has always been that it's
easier to get a job if you already
have one, and that seems truer
than ever now.
But the last three years of layoffs,
plant-closings, downsizing and
high unemployment means that
there are many workers who don't
The Tea Party's take on the issues
to national security, immigration
and radical Islam.
The central theme of the series
is the growing chasm between
progressive theory and hard reality.
Richard Epstein boils the ques-
tion down to its essence in "Why
Progressive Institutions Are Un-
sustainable": "As the next election
comes ever closer, this nation faces
a fork in the road. Does it continue
with the progressive policies of the
past several years, dating back to
the first years of the second Bush
administration, or does it return to
the classical liberal model?"
National defense looms large in
the series, with pamphlets devoted
to the current administration's
mishandling of the nation's security
and foreign policy. In three short
years, President Barack Obama has
alienated friends (Great Britain and
Israel), emboldened enemies (Iran
and North Korea), and signaled
weakness and indecisiveness to
rivals (China and Russia).
He is, as former U.N. Ambassador
John Bolton writes in "How Barack
Obama is Endangering Our Na-
tional Sovereignty," "our first post-

'parochial' interests and more as

domestic policies, some of which

tions but have been exacerbated
since Obama took the helm. Health

What is the answer? Betsey Mc-
Caughey argues in "Obama's Health
Law: What It Says and How to
Overturn It," that a 20-page bill to
repeal and replace the misnamed
Affordable Care Act would free
consumers to buy insurance from
other states; provide incentives for
states to establish medical courts
to weed out frivolous lawsuits and
create subsidized high-risk insur-
ance pools; and fix COBRA. '

at does OccupyWall
Street know? Judging from
the manifestos, leaflets,
banners and detritus left behind at
Occupy camps from Manhattan to
Los Angeles, the answer is too little
about too much.
Perhaps Hanna Appel has the
solution. The Columbia University
anthropologist will give class credit
to students who do "fieldwork" in
the OccupyWall Street movement.
The idea, apparently, is to give
young students a political
education on the ground.
The Tea Party movement has
already done its fieldwork. But in
fairness, we might also ask what
exactly does the Tea Party know?
Enough to score a victory at the
polls in 2010, certainly. But enough
to save the country? It's safe to say
the Tea Party is still a young move-
ment in need of its own higher
Happily, a Tea Party alternative to
Appel's pedagogical experiments
does exist, and tuition runs notice-
ably less than Columbia's $51,866 a
year. In a pungent series of booklets
called Encounter Broadsides, read-
ers have accessible and rigorous
primers on the conservative mind,
just in time for the 2012 election
season, and priced around $6 a
piece. Call it Tea Party 101.
"We aim not merely to comment
on, but to intervene in the debate,

TALLAHASSEE Leaders of the
Republican-controlled House and
Senate cleared the way for formal
budget negotiations on Tuesday only
hours after it appeared the process
was bogged down over differences
on allocations for higher education.
The short-lived standoff came
when the Senate refused a House
offer to cut $200 million in annual
spending on higher education, a
"deal killer" that might have delayed
the Legislature in meeting its March 9
adjournment. But the fencing ended
quickly with a mid-afternoon joint
statement from Senate President
Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island,
and House Speaker Dean Cannon,
"We were able to produce budget
allocations that address a more than
$1 billion shortfall, increase Pre-K-
12 education funding by more than
$1 billion and set aside ample re-
serves," Cannon said.
The Senate passed a budget of
nearly $71. billion on Feb.,15, two
weeks after a $69.2 billion budget
a oe-term pr.esw :]ident.
passed in the House.
The House budget is about $1.6
billion less because the Senate
wants budget control over two local
expressway authorities. The Senate
,budget, which totals nearly $70.8
billion, boosts funding for road-
building while also establishing cuts
for substance abuse programs. Both
target thousands of state workers'
jobs. The House budget would raise
the cost of college and cut health
care programs while the Senate's
proposal cuts spending on hospitals,
and limits emergency room visits.

Legislators refuse to
hike their premiums
The Assoqiated Press
TALLAHASSEE Florida legislators,
saying that they differ from rank-and-
file state workers, shot down an effort on
Tuesday to force themselves to pay more
for their health insurance.
The 160 members in the Florida Legis-
lature pay among the lowest premiums
in state government.
Legislators pay $8.34 a month for in-
dividual coverage and $30 a month for
family coverage. That's the same amount
that about 32,000 state workers and top
officials such as Gov. Rick Scott pay.
Rank-and-file state workers, however,
pay $50 a month for individual coverage
and $180 a month for family coverage.
Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, said legis-
lators should pay the- same for health
insurance as janitors and prison guards.
"There is no rationale for the Legis-
lature to pay significantly lower health
insurance than our co-workers in state.

we pay less for health insurance than

ing of Dalton Hendrix,
Varnum and King, took

bers, Varnum and King

don produced animated

Republicans on the Senate Budget Com-
mittee. They argued that they are already
sacrificing financially to be in the Legis-
lature and that their salaries have been
reduced or frozen in recent years. Leg-
islators earn slightly less than $30,000
a year while, the two legislative leaders
earn slightly more than $41,000.
Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, argued
that lawmakers were "different from jan-
itors" since they have to contend with
contested elections and can be accused
by political opponents of ethical wrong-
doing. Siplin has battled several ethics
charges over the last decade.
"This is an expense for us, this is not a
benefit," Siplin said.
Sen. Ellyn.Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauder-
dale, blasted Negron's proposal as an at-
tempt to make a political statement that
can be placed on a campaign mail piece,
while Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton,
said the hike in premiums would result
in only wealthy people getting elected.
This marks one of the few times that
lawmakers have openly debated how
much they pay for health insurance.
The issue is normally addressed in the
state budget. The health insurance cov-
erage provided to legislators used to be
free but the state started charging the
current rate in 2010.
Lockey asked the county's staff plan-
ning director get in touch with the advi-
sory board and see if it will be possible
to convene a special early meeting of
that group to consider what might be in-
cluded in an ordinance change, so they
would be ready to make a recommenda-
tion at the regularly-scheduled planning
-session on March 13.
County Attorney Frank Baker was
also directed to participate in drafting a
proposed ordinance amendment, with
input from. the county's staff planning
director, for the planning board to con-
sider when it does meet. Whether a spe-
cial planning session is called or not, the
county commission board gave itself an
opportunity to soon' hear the planning
In anticipation of a planning recom-
mendation by the time the county com-
mission meets again on March 27, the
county board voted to set a public hear-

Later in Tuesday night's county meet-
ing, commissioners also put one more
item on the planning commission's
special session agenda. Business owner

the land he owns, the Eagles Landing

Got Coin? It might be just the
time to cash in. This week, starting
Monday and continuing through
Sunday, the International Collectors
Association, in conjunction with the
Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery,,
will be purchasing all types of silver
and gold coins direct from the public.
All types are welcome and the event
Collectors will be on hand to
identify and sort your coins. Then the
quality or grade will be determined.
According to collectors I talked with,
the better the grade the more they
are worth. With the current silver
and gold markets, prices are up for
older coins too. Any coins minted in
1970 and before in the U.S. are 90%
silver, except nickels and pennies.
The coins worth is determined
by the rarity and the grade. Old silver
dollars are worth a great premium
right now. Even well worn and heavy
circulated ones are bringing good
premiums. Franklin and Kennedy
halves, Washington quarters and
Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are all
worth many times their face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins
are worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a
lot right now according to Brian
Eades of the International Collectors
Association. "This country didn't
start minting coins until 1792," says
Eades. "Before that people would
trade goods using gold dust and
nuggets. Some shop keepers would
take more gold than needed to pay
for items purchased. There was no
uniform system of making change."
$4600.00, with one of the watches
in this collection bringing
$375.00 of the $4600.00 talley.
A husband and wife brought
in a box of old Jewelry,
wristwatches, coins, and two
German daggers from WW2 and
left $785.00 richer.
This is cool that something
like this would come here to our
town. Where else would this stuff
ever be sold? The refinery has
teamed up with the collectors for
a 24 month tour of the United
States, both.big and small towns
to dig up hidden gems.

The government opened the
first mints and began distributing
the coins in 1792. By the beginning
of the 19th century, coins and paper
currency were wide spread and our
monetary system was here to stay. In
1933, Roosevelt required all banking
institutions to turn in all gold coins.
Once all banks turned in this
gold, the president raised the gold
standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way
of stimulating the economy during
the great depression. However, gold
coins were never redistributed after
the recall. Not all gold coins were
turned in. Many folks during that
time didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their
These gold coins are sought after
by collectors today and bring many
times the face value. Any gold coins
with the mint marks of CC, D or O
will bring nice premiums. Collectors
at the event will be glad to show you
where to look. Other types of coins
will, also be purchase including:
foreign coins, Indian head cents, two

earlier were bringing big premiums
as well. Silver dollars, halves and

BY DUSTIN KENT
After dropping three of their last
five games, the Chipola Indians will
try to get back on track this week
with six games, starting today with a
road trip to face Middle Georgia.
Chipola (11-10) started the season
6-7 before winning three straight
over Wallace State-Dothan, Chatta-
hoochee Valley and St. Johns River
to move two games over .500.
But the Indians had the streak
broken with a 4-3 loss to Darton
on Feb. 21 before splitting a pair of
games with LSU-Eunice and doing
the same with Middle Georgia last
The lack of consistency is what
Chipola coach Jeff Johnson said has
been the most frustrating part of the
season thus far.
"One game, we'll play decent, and
then the next, we'll play with no in-
tensity," he said. "We've got to get
that fixed. We're making way too

Dear Annie: I have been friends with
"Laura" since my husband and I moved
here 22 years ago. She is financially bet-
ter off than I am (and flaunts it), but it
never bothered me until she decided we
should exchange Christmas gifts a few
Laura can be very judgmental, and
finding the right present for her was
difficult. Costume jewelry would be re-
jected, and the real stuff was out of reach.
Meanwhile, whenever Laura was selling
Tupperware or purses, I always bought
something in order to be supportive.
Last year, she started a baking business,
so I bought her a cupcake holder for
Christmas. However, she had a Christmas
party a few days before the actual holi-
day, so instead of giving her the holder,
I gave her a hostess gift of a cookbook,
intending to give her the cupcake holder
at our personal gift exchange.
The day after her party, she called and
told me off. She said my presents were
"cheap." I tried to explain about the host-
ess gift, but she would hear none of it.
This deal is tough to get right. One defe
looks so obvious and "sure" to work that n
players would not even stop to consider tha
alternative plan might be needed.
East is defending against four spades, hav
overcalled in hearts. West leads the heart n
which must be a singleton or from a double
(With 9-x-x, he would lead his lowest he
since he did not support his partner's st
How should East plan the defense?
South's jump to four spades was a slight o,
bid, but he and his partner had not discus
using a double over three hearts as an artifi
game-try. (Note that three hearts goes dc
one if North and South promote South's hc
jack with a third club lead by North.)
After cashing two heart tricks, and know
that South has a heart left, East will be temp
to lead a third heart, expecting West to be a
to ruff higher than dummy's spade eight. Hi
though, that lets declarer collect an overtric
East should take a safety-play, first ca
ing the diamond ace. Here, West encoura
enthusiastically with his eight, and a secc
diamond lead defeats the contract. But if'
does have a spade higher than dummy's eig
he would discourage in diamonds. If there
two chances to defeat a contract, try both.

the master of your own fate
when making and keep-
ing pledges to others. No
one will be forgiving if you
break your promise and
fail to do as you say.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Relying on your
hunches regarding a spec-
ulative risk is a bad idea.
I was angry, and so was she. On her birth-
day two weeks later, I texted, "Happy
birthday," but she didn't respond. In fact,
Laura has not spoken a word to me for
more than a year.
Last summer, I tried to mend things.
I sent a letter saying I was sorry I'd hurt
her feelings, but a Christmas gift seemed
like a silly reason to end a 20-year friend-
ship. I heard nothing back. I'm still upset
about it. My husband says I am better off
without her if she measures a friendship
by the quality of the gifts.
The problem is, when Laura was selling
real estate, she helped my son purchase
his first home. He is getting married in
July. Should I send her an invitation?
Dear California: You are not obligated to
invite Laura to the wedding. But if you do
and she chooses to attend, it creates the
opportunity to renew the friendship (if
that's what you want). Unless you cannot
afford to have her as a guest, there is no
downside to sending an invitation.
