From .: 1jn rep:r
Two people were arrest-
ed on Monday after po-
lice found drugs and drug
paraphernalia in their car

ox-codonel, three counts
of possession of prescrip-
tion pills without a pre-
scription and possession


of drug paraphernalia.
Police pulled over the
pair during a trat.-ic stop
on Baltzell Seet because

hypodermic needles. A
small amount of cocaine
and oxycodone was also

Compass

oflegislative


meeting

Id, IC.i ,,',"- '.l o ," 1,rid.r3 .:.:.ob'rl

State Representatives larti Coley
and Brad Drake, and State Senator Bill
Nlontford met with lackson County
residents on Tuesday, with issues sur-
rounding Compass Lake in the Hills
taking the forefront at the legislative
S delegation meeting.
Compass Lake's Properry Owners As-
sociation wants the subdivision to tran-
siton from a M-iiicipal Sernice Taxing
District to an Independent Special Tax-
ing District. Nevin Zimmerman, the
attorney hired by the association, said
this decision was brought about after
an audit and a review of the law.
Most of the residents that came for-
ward had no problem with the change
to an ISTD. Se\erai listed an a\ailabil-
ity of grants and government aid to the
commwuritv's volunteer-based services,
like the fire department, as a major
benefit to the change.
The main point of contention was
with the voting style proposed by the
new ISTD. it still uses a one-parcel, one-
vote method in some elections. One
example used to'describe the negative
aspects of this by the present residents
is that someone who owned a number
of unimproved parcels and may not ac-
S mally reside in Compass Lake has more

LEADERSHIP AMBASSADOR AWARD

Kenny Griffin talks about the rewards of working with people and about the honor he feels in having received the statewide Leadership
Ambassador Award from the Florida Workforce Development Association.

Griffin receives award from Florida Workforce Development Association


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
tjul: I hjl-r' II'lllolrrlja r .:I T,
eK nny Griffin was -ice-president
of LeHigh Furniture when the
company closed its doors in
Marianna back in the late 1990s.
In the blink of an eye, he went from
a high'-paying, high-level job to being
"on the street." beating the pavement
for a job.
So he knows a lot about the agony
of unemployment. There's a sense
of shame, or worthlessness, that can
overtake a person, even if they were
not at fault in any way for the loss of a
job. Despair can set in as the newly-
idle breadwinner looks for a way to
put food on the table for a son or


daughter.
He went though it himself back then.
Today, he spends his life'helping other
people work their way into new jobs,
but his job entails more than that. He
can also help them work their way
through the despair they feel. He's
handed tissue to people while they
cry, been a sotmding board as they
vent their anger, lent a listening ear as
they express their doubts and fears.
He has also put together more than
one exit session for people laid off en
masse with the closing of a facility
or business that employed multiple
local workers. He was called with little
prior notice one morning this year to

U.S. Senate candidate speaks at Republican Club of Northwest Florida


SProposes new tax system
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
-' ", dL J.u,. ialt r .. I ll,:,ri.dar, : .n

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Deon
Long laid out this campaign platform for
the Republican Club of Northwest Florida
on Tuesday. Guest speaker at the organi-
zation's monthly meeting. Long said he
has simple solutions for the nation that
w-ill be difficult but critical to carry out
if the country is to continue as a world
leader.
He wants to repeal current tax laws and
establish a retail-based "fair tax" in place
of the personal and business income taxes
now in place. That, he said, would accom-
Splish multiple needed remedies. Taxpay-
ers would determine their own tax rate by


controlling their spending. 'The flat rate,
he said, would apply to all consumers
equally. If the federal income tax system
were abolished, it would automatically
do aw\ay with the loopholes and exemp-
tions that frustrate American taxpayers
who bear the brunt of the burden.
Further, he said, a new tax system would
help strip the federal government of the
money and therefore the control he feels
it uses to the detriment of the taxpayer.
"We don't need a manager in Wash-
ington), we need to permanently hand-
cuff the federal government from doing
tilings that result in deficit spending)," he
told the crowd. "The main thing is to get
the power out of \Washington and back
to the states. We need to have limited

Other Opinion


Water steardship


economic driver:: :
The Tampa Tibune
The Southwest Florida Water Management District
is up to its neck in financial woes, and while se-
vere cutbacks are necessary, Gov. Rick Scott and
lawmakers should be prepared to throw a lifeline. Its
stewardship is critical to the state's economic growth.
As the Tribune's Keith Morelli reports, reduced tax
revenues resulting from lower property values and cuts
by the Legislature and Scot have reduced the regional
water district's budget almost by half.
The district, commonly called Swiftmud, is using
reserves to carry on critical responsibilities, such as
cleaning rivers and lakes, helping agriculture reduce
groundwater use and developing alternative water
sources.
The money will run out within a couple of years, and
then much of the district's vital water protection func-
dons will be compromised.
Already the district has virtually halted land acquisi-
tion and now is looking at selling land.
All this should be intensely troubling to anyone who
cares about Florida's future.
Florida can't grow without clean and abundant water
sources. And it won't prosper if it wrecks its natural
beauty.
Swiftmud's water controls have helped the region
meet the water demands of a growing population while
protecting critical resources. Its land conservation
preserves beautiful stretches of wilderness that provide
key wildlife habitat and offer countless recreational
opportunities.
These lands also buffer rivers, springs, lakes and bays
from polluting runoff. They avert costly flooding proj-
ects by preventing construction in flood-prone areas.
Land purchases prevent,harmful development without
property rights disputes.
Yet some politicians act as if conserving land is a
waste of money. That is a shortsighted attitude that will
prove costly to taxpayers and the environment. Scott, to
his credit, provides $15 million for the Florida Forever
land conservation program in this year's budget. It's a
minimal amount but shows the state intends to keep
the effort alive even during these tough times.
We don't suggest that Swiftmud and the other four
state water districts be exempt from serious cuts. Like
many state agencies, they grew accustomed to a heavy
flow of tax dollars during the boom years.
New Southwest Florida Water Management District
Executive Director Blake Guillory now is seeking to
wring every possible efficiency from operations.
It should be a beneficial exercise for taxpayers and the
agency as long as the district's vwater-protection
mission remains the priority.
Similarly, selling some land of limited environmental
value may be appropriate, particularly if the district
sells it with restrictions that will prevent harmful uses.
But such transactions deserve the utmost scrutiny.
The better approach is to encourage more public use
of the land, which the district has emphasized in recent
years. It offers an excellent guidebook detailing all the
land available for hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing
and other activities. Officials also are right to pursue
expanded use, particularly hunting, which is prohibited
at many sites. It can be managed so it has little impact
on the land or other users.
Hunters outdoor enthusiasts should be natural
allies of the district's conservation work. In these finan-
cially difficult times Swiftmud needs all the advocates it
can get.
The painful austerity steps the district is undergoing
now may result in a leaner more efficient operation.
But voters should watch to ensure the district's critical
stewardship responsibilities are not crippled.
A Florida that doesn't invest in safeguarding its natu-
ral riches will soon find itself wanting for water and
economic oppormmuties.

Where is prince (or princess) charming?


BY COKIE ROBERTS AND
STEVEN V.ROBERTS

WT were talking to a group
of senior Republicans re-
centy about the election,
and here's the essence of what they
said: Damn it. We should have got-
ten Chris Christie or Mitch Daniels
or Paul Ryan to run.
A sense of lost opportunity is
starting to seep through GOP ranks.
Republicans believe the president
is eminently beatable. But they're
increasingly convinced that none of
their candidates are up to the job.
The two contenders with any real
chance, Mitt Romney and Newt
Gingrich, each display devastating
drawbacks. That's why so many
Republicans mourn for the putative
Prince Charmings who never even
tried to kiss the princess Chris-
.tie, the New Jersey governor;
Daniels, the Indiana governor; and
Ryan, the Wisconsin congressman.
Republican pollster John Zogby
offers numbers to illustrate his
party's miasmic mood. Forty-two
percent of all Republicans still rate
their choices as only fair or poor.
Among independents, the rate of
dissatisfaction jumps to 72 percent.
And in a survey of all voters, Pew
reports that by a margin of 2-to-1,
their impression of the GOP field is
actuallygetting worse, not better.
Until recently, Republican insid-
ers kept their deepening dismay to
themselves, but now it's breaking
through the surface. Conservative
columnist George Will writes of
Romney and Gingrich: "Both are
too risky to anoint today." Com-
mentator Charles Krauthammer is
equally distraught: "This is a weak
Republican field with two signifi-
candy flawed front-runners."


The Democrats certainly don't
have an ideal candidate either.
Obama enters the race with huge
vulnerabilities of his own. The
unemployment rate has edged
downward but remains dismal, and
will probably stay that way through
the election; only one in five voters
think the country is headed in the
right direction; only 44 percent
approve of the president's perfor-
mance. Few Americans can say
they're better off today than they
were four years ago.
But one of the oldest adages in
politics remains one of the tru-
est: You can't beat somebody with
nobody. Romney has been running
for president full-time since 2008,
yet only one in five Republicans
endorse him today and his support
is receding, not rising. In the latest
NBC-Marist poll, Romney dropped
eight points in Iowa and six in New
Hampshire.
The core reason is pretty simple:
Folks just don't like him. Democrat-
ic pollster Peter Hart conducted a
focus group among a dozen Repub-
licans and asked: If Romney were a
member of your family, who would
he be? "Second cousin." said one.
The snobby relative who's "richer
than the rest of us," said another.
And the most damning descrip-
tion of all: "The dad who's never at
home."
Romney is frosty, remote, awk-
ward even his laugh seems
scripted and phony. But his prob-
lems go deeper than mere manner-
isms. Romney seems too privileged,
too unmarked by failure or disap-
pointment. One Republican told
The New York Times he was "a little
too perfect." How can someone
like that understand the fears and
frustrations of the rest of us?


In American politics, scars of
survival are essential badges of
honor. Barack Obama, Btll Clinton
and Ronald Reagan all grew up with
alcoholic or absent fathers: George
Bush the elder and lohn F. Kennedy
almost died serving their country;
Franklin Roosevelt overcame the
ravages of polio and George Bush
the younger conquered addiction
and found God.
Romney grew up wealthy, mar-
ried well, fathered five sons and
expanded the family fortune. What
story of suffering or redemption
can he tell?
Gingrich does have such a story.
After two divorces and a humiliat-
ing failure as Speaker of the House,
he married a third time, converted
to Catholicism, and can plausibly
argue that he's well acquainted
with the trials andtemptations that
Romney has never encountered.
He could be the next recipient of
Clinton's nickname, the "Comeback
Kid."
But if Gingrich can surmount
his past, he cannot suffocate it. In
Hart's focus group, one Republican
voter called him "careless and com-
bustible" and another said he rep-
resented "the same ole ballgame."
Will is even nastier, arguing that
Gingrich "embodies the vanity and
rapacity that make modern Wash-
ington repulsive." Krauthammer
adds, "Gingrich has a self-regard
so immense that it rivals Obama's
- but unlike Obama's, is untamed
by self-discipline."
One of these "risky" candidates
will almost certainly carrn the
Republican banner against Obama
next fall. But for many Republicans,
this story has no Prince (or Prin-
cess) Charming. And how can you
have a happy ending without one?


Letters to the'Editor


Get ready for GOP primary
election on Jan. 31
It's still 2011 but already we're
ankle-deep in political activities
for the 2012 national election in
November. Across America some
states have sought to boost their
political clout by advancing their
primary elections and thus be-
come early decision-makers for the
presidential election. Right here at
home, Florida's GOP has decided to
move its primary election forward
to lan. 31. That's next month!
The following comments are not
intended to criticize that decision
(made far, far away in another time
zone), but rather to call attention
to a looming deadline that permits
Florida voters to change their parry
preference. With all the hustle and
bustle of the Christmas and New
Year's activities, the date of lan.
3 could slip up on the most loyal
Florida voters. If missed, citizens
will lose their opportunity to ex-
ercise one of the most prized and
rev ered franchises known around
the world: The freedom to pick a
candidate to run for the President
of the United States.
In lackson County, the current
registration numbers are 17,947
Democrats, 7,674 Republicans
and 2,482 Independents. Here is
an interesting statistic for lackson
County from the 2008 presiden-
tial election; nearly 64 percent of
voters preferred the Republican
candidate. In 2010, lackson County
voted 60 percent Republican for
U.S. Senator and 58 percent for U.S.
Representative.
This is a reminder: If you want
to be in on the selection of the
GOP candidate to run in the 2012
presidential election, and you're
not a registered Republican, then


you need to go to the Supervisor of
Elecdons Office and change your
party preference. If you don't, you'll
have to watch from the sidelines
as Republicans pick the candidate
that could be your next President of
your United States.
CLINT PATE
Chairman. Jackson County
Republican Executive Committee


Register Republican and
choose the next president
Our country is an economic mess.
Our American values, principles
and traditions are being trounced
by President Obama and his ad-
ministration. It is very likely that
he will be defeated for reelection.
One of the Republican presiden-
tial candidates will be the next
president of the United,States. That
candidate will be chosen by voters
in the coming primaries. Florida is
an important factor in the nomina-
tion. Our primary will be held on
lan. 31,2012. Only registered Re-
publicans will be able to vote. If you
want a say on who will be our next
president, you must be registered
as a Republican by lan. 3. That is
only a few days away.
Democrats, ask yourselves: Does
my party really represent my ide-
als? Is my party really serious about
saving our economy and American
way of life?
Independents, aski yourselves:
What do I stand for? What do I want
from my representatives? Why dol
have to sit out primary elections?
In other words, ask yourselves:
Why am I not a Republican? If yoiu
can not give yourself an honest
answer to these questions, then
register Republican by Jan. 3. Get
a voice in who will be your next


president.

Solve the problems now
How is this for a novel way to win
an election: I have a way to solve a
problem, whether it be for the city,
county, state or "all of us." Instead
of just saying, "Elect me & I'll solve
the problem." I go to the appro-
priate department, tell them the
solution (with a lot of press cover-
agei and if they do it and it works
- voila! I am the person to elect
to continue solving the problems.
If they don't do it, then I might
still get elected because the smart
masses versus the dumb masses
will see that I have the smarts to do
the job.
I am sick of all the people run-
ning for office saying they have
the solution but we have to let the
problem continue on until they
are elected to correct it. Get the
problems solved when they pop up
and get it out there that you did it
and you will get elected/reelected.
And that really goes for congress.
If they want to get Obama and his
czars out of there, get the solutions
into bills and send them to O)ama.
If he doesn't sign them, hopefully,
he's out of there!
Isn't that why they're all there in
the first place, to get the problems
solved?
I have always wondered about
that and haven't been able to figure
out why, if the "runners" have the
solutions, they don't fix the prob-
lems and they wouldn't even have
to campaign. I don't want promises,
I want actions.

Police reveal details about FAMU band hazing


The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Three
Florida A&M University
marching band members,
all.men, appeared before a
judge Tuesday to face haz-
ing charges in the beating
of a woman band mate
police said was hit so hard
with fists and a metal ruler
S that she broke her thigh
and had blood clots in her
legs.
, The arrests marked the
S first details from authori-
ties about the secret rituals
this fall among the famed
Marching 100 band. Police
said Bria Shanme Hunter,
who played clarinet, was
beaten about three weeks
before drum major Rob-
ert Champion died during
what was believed to be
hazing on a band bus.
Investigators have not
said exact what hap-
pened to Champion, who
S was also a clarinet player,
and like Hunter. from Geor-
gia. Champion's death set
,off several investigations
of the marching band and
school administrators who
appear to have long known
about the hazing tradition.


Ti I : :T I 'I I' : E' I T'ii
On Nov. 19, the Florida A&M University Marching 100 perform
during the halftime show of an NCAA college football game
against Bethune-Cookman in Orlando, Fla.


Hunter, in an inter-
view with Orlando station
WVFIT-TV, was asked why
band members take part
in hazing.
"So we can be accepted,"
she said. "If you don't do
anything, then, it's like
you're lame."
Tallahassee police said
the three men arrested
were involved in hazing
Hunter at an off-campus
apartment because she
tried to get out of a meet-
ing and couldn't recite
information about their


clique of Georgia natives,
known as the "Red Dawg
Order."
Authorities said lames
Harris, 22, helped plan
the hazing at his apart-
ment and, at one point, he
stopped the other two men
from hitting Hunter fur-
ther. He has been charged
with hazing and his bond
was set at $2,500.
Harris' attorney, Eric
Abrahamsen, insisted
there was no evidence his
client took part in the haz-
ing and that he would fight


the charges.
Sean Hobson, 23, and
19-year-old Aaron Golson,
were charged with haz-
ing and battery, and their
'bail was set at $10,000. An
attornr for Golson said
he would also plead not
guilt. Golson was released
front jail and ducked into a
car driven by his mother.,
He refused to answer any
questions.
Hobson did not yet have
an attorney '
Authorities said HI-nter
w\as targeted Oct. 31 by
other members of the "Red
Dawg Order" because she
tried to get out of going to
a group meeting. She was
repeatedly punched on
the tops of her thighs by
Golson and Hobson, wit-
nesses told police.
The following day, police
said, Hunter was beaten
with a metal ruler when
she could not recite in-
formation about the "Red
Dawg Order" properly.
Police said Hobson sent
Hunter a text message Nov.
5 to say he was sorry.
"I apologize for the hurt
I put you through. I apolo-

physical strain you have

the message, according to
police.
When authorities in-
terviewed him,, Hobson
acknowledged he ,vas a
member of the "Red Dawg
Order" but denied harm-
ing Hunter or sending her
-a text message.
Attorney Craig Brown,
who is representing Gol-
son. told the judge his cli-
ent was a good student
and should be released
without bond because he


was cooperating with po-
lice. Leon Counth Judge
Ronald Flurry, however,
required Golson to post
a bond. The judge said if
the charges were true, they
were "egregious."
After the hearing, Brown
said there was a "differ-
enice in the stories" of what
actually took place.
Champion's death ex-
posed a hazing tradition
that has haunted the uni-
versity. Performances by
the Marching 100 have
been suspended.

Retail sales helping economy grow


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Economic.
growth is picking up in the final:
three. months, of the year, fueled
by higher consumer spending,
rising business stockpiles and.
modest increases in hiring.
The start of the holiday shop-
ping season in November helped
produce the sixth straight month-
ly increase in retail sales. Gift-
buying Americans spent more
on clothing arid electronics, and
sales of autos and furniture also
rose.
Still, the improvement might

That's likely to restrain growth

worsening of Europe's financial
crisis.
Because pay raises have been
slight, consumers have dipped
into savings to finance much of
the additional spending. That
trend may not be sustainable.

the economy to grow at an annual
rate of at least 3 percent in the Oc-
tober-December quarter, up from
2 percent in the July-September
period.
Retail sales rose 0.2 percent in
November, the government said
Tuesday. That was lower than
October's gain, which was revised
up-to show a 0.6 percent increase.
And it was.the smallest increase
in five months.

.An increase in furniture and
auto sales, suggested that con-
sumers made more big purchases
in November. So-called "core"
sales, which exclude the volatile
categories of autos, gasoline and
building materials, rose for an
11th straight month.
SAt the same time, sales fell at
gasoline stations-and restaurants.
"People decided to go to the
.store and do their shopping
rather than go to the restaurant,"
Jonathan Basile, an economist at
Credit Suisse.
The dip in job openings in Oc-
tober followed a three-year high
in September.
Each opening is sparking heavy
competition. Nearly 14 million
people were unemployed in Oc-
tober. That means there was an
a erage of 4.25 people out of work
for each available opening. That's
worse than September's ratio of
4.14. In a healthy economy, an
average of only about nvo people
vie for each opening.
And business inventories rose
0.8 percent in October. When
companies build up their inven-
tories, it usually signals that they
expect more sales.
The report is the government's
first read on monthly consumer
spending, which accounts for 70
percent of economic acti-ity.
Even though retail sales rose
only slightly from October to No-
%vember, they've increased more
sharply over a broader period.
Sales have surged 6.7 percent, for
example, over the past 12 months.
That's less than the 7.5 percent in-
crease from October 2010 to Oc-
tober 2011. But it's still evidence
of healthy spending.
Chris Christopher, an econo-
mist at.IHS Global Insight, fore-
casts. hat holiday sales will rise
by slightly less than 5 percent this
year, compared with 5.2 percent
in 2010. Holiday sales fell in 2008
and 2009. Christopher defines
holiday sales as retail sales in No-'
xember and December, excluding
autos, gas, and restaurants.
Christopher cautions, though,
that about a third of this year's
increase is due to rising prices.
Inflation rose 3.5 percent in the
12 months that ended in October.
Thats up from a 1.2 percent rate


for the 12 months ending in Oc-
tober 2010.
Higher inflation, spurred by a
jump in gasoline prices, reduced
consumers' buying power in the
spring and early summer. That's
a big reason why the economy
barely grew in the first half of this
year.
Higher inflation has also eroded
wages. After-tax, inflation-adjust-
ed incomes dropped 2.1 percent
in the July-September quarter.
That's the biggest drop since the
third quarter of 2009.
Fortunately for the economy,
those trends have showed signs
of reversing. Gas prices have
dropped. And inflation has slowed
in recent months; it dipped 0.1
percent in October. After-tax, in-
flation-adjusted incomes rose
0.3 percent in October. It was the
first gain after three months of
declines.
Paul Dales, a senior U.S. econo-
mist at Capital Economics, notes
that the larger spending increases
over the summer came after con-
sumers had dipped into their sav-
ings to make up for smaller gains
in income. He thinks consumers
might be forced to pull back.
"November's modest rise could
therefore be the start of a period
in which households start to
spend more within their means,"
.Dales said.

lion over the Thanksgiving holi-
day weekend, according to the

consumers held back on spend-
ing in the rest of November, to
wait for the deals and discounts
that weekend.
Online holiday sales are also
growing, although they are ex-
pected to peak this week. Mlany
shoppers tend to complete orders
by mid-month to allow time for
presents to be shipped.
Merchants can make up to 40
percent of their annual revenue
during the holiday shopping sea-
son, which includes November
'and December.
Automakers have reported
strong sales for November. Chrys-
ler, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai re-
ported double-digit sales 'gains.
November is usually a lackluster
month for auto sales because of
cold weather. But automakers of-
fered steep discounts and many
consumers can't wait any longer
to replace their aging vehicles.
More demand has helped boost
hiring. Employers added a net to-
tal of 120,000 jobs last month. The
economy has generated 100,000
or more jobs five months in a
row the first time that has hap-
pened since April 2006.
Consumers might also have to
cut back on spending if Congress
.doesn't extend a Social Security
tax cut or emergency federal un-
employment benefits. Both expire
at the end of this year. The Social
Security tax this year boosted
take-home pay for the average

Texas school may build


safety wall after shooting


T,-i; A' ;Cuctled Pr[i,-

EDINBURG. Texas -
School officials in South
Texas confined students to
campus buildings and pon-
dered erecting a cinder-
block wall to block bullets
from hunters on adjacent
ranchland one day after
two middle school boys
were shot while trying out
for the basketball team on
an outdoor court.
It seemed the most im-
mediate solution for a
problem specific to rural
schools. With no law in
Texas prohibiting hunt-
ing on private land next to
schools and high-powered
rifles firing ammunition-
that could go more than a
mile, school officials said
a barrier seemed a good
idea.
Harwell Middle School
opened just this year on
rural property northeast of
Edinburg, which is about
50 miles northwest of
Brownsville. Homes line
the road approaching the
school, but ranchlands
covered with thickets of
short trees and under-
growth stretch out to the
vest and the north.
"We were not'aware that
there was hunting on the
west side of the school. or
that there were (hunting]
leases on the west side
until last night," school
district Superintendent
Rene Gutierrez said. A wall
stretching along the back
Sof Harwell Middle School
and a neighboring ele-
mentary school and curv-
ing around to protect the
middle school from the
north are being consid-
ered. Gutierrez said.
Now, a chain link fence
separates the campus from
about 200 yards of open
field, and there a tree line
starts an expanse of thick
scrub to the west.
The boys, ages 13 and 14,
were in a parking lot that
had been converted into a
temporary basketball court
behind Harwell when they

50 children there trying

other staff tended to the
wounded students, Guti-
errez said. Both boys un-
derwent surgery and were
listed in stable condition,
he said.
Investigators were able to
retrieve a bullet from one
of the boys. Hidalgo Coun-
ty Sheriff LupeTrevino said
they will check for a ballis-
tics match with rifles taken
from three men who were
questioned.
Two of the men were
shooting target practice
about 800 yards, or nearly
a half-mile, from where
the boys were shot, Tre\ino
said.
"Their initial statement
leads us to believe that
they were in the right line
of uajectory," Trevino said.
The men were released


around 2 a.m. Tuesday, but
are still tinder investiga-
ion, he said.
A third man remained in
custody Tuesday. He was
trespassing on adjacent
land and carrying an AR- 15
assault rifle. Trevino said he
was in the countr- illegally
and could face trespassing
charges in addition to his
immigration violation. In-
vestigators were still trying
to pinpoint his location at
the time of the shooting to
determine whether he-was
in line with the victims.
Mike Cox, a spokesman
for Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department, said he was
not aware of a specific law
or regulation that prohib-
its hunting close to public
buildings, such as schools
or hospitals.

Fed says economy is healthier


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Federal Reserve on Tues-
,day portrayed the U.S.
economy as slightly
healthier and held off on
any new steps to boost the
economy.
Hiring is picking up and
consumers are spend-
ing more despite slower
growth globally, the Fed
said in its latest policy
statement.
Fed officials cautioned
that unemployment re-
mains high. And it warnedl
of strains in global finan-
cial markets that pose
a threat to the world's
economy a reference to
Europe's debt. crisis. They
left open the possibility of
taking new steps next year
if the economy worsens.
The Fed made only
slight changes to No\em-
bei's statement. The poli-
cy committee approved it
by an identical 9-1 vote.
Charles Evans dissented
for the second straight
meeting, arguing again for
more action by the Fed.
Stocks fell after the Fed
released its statement.
The Dow ones industrial
average lost 90 points in
gains and fell another 60
points after the statement
was released. Broader in-
dexes also dropped.
Many economists said
Fed policymakers likely
spent their final meeting
of the year fine-tuning a
strategy for communi-


rating changes in interest
rates more explicitly. The
Fed has left rates near zero
for the past three years.
More guidance would help
assure investors, compa-
nies and consumers that
rates won't rise before a
specific time.
The Fed made no men-
tion ofa new communica-
tions strategy in its state-
ment. But economists say
it could be unveiled as
soon as nevw month, after
the Fed's Jan 24-25 policy
meeting.
Diane Swbnk, chief
economist at Nlesirow
Financial, said the No-
vember minutes showed
the Fed discussed adding
an interest rate forecast
to its quarterly economic
projections.
Swonk said the Fed may
be trying to build a stron-
ger consensus before an-
nouncing the change. She
also noted that three Fed-
eral Reserve regional bank
presidents who opposed
key policy changes this
year will not have votes


next year.
Charles Plosser of Phila-
delphia, Richard Fisher of
Dallas and Nata\ana Ko-
cherlakota of Nlinneapo-
lis all dissented from the
Fed's policy statements
in September and August
after citing concerns that
the actions introduced at
those meetings could fuel
inflation.
In September. the Fed
said it would re-arrange
its bond holdings to stress
longer-term maturities, to
try to exert more down-
ward pressure on long-
term rates.
That followed the Fed's
announcement in August
that it planned to keep
its benchmark rate at a
record low until at least
mid-2013. as long as the
economy remains weak.
The Fed repeated that
timeframe in its Decem-
ber policy statement.
"I think the Fed will shift
its communications pol-
icy once the most vehe-
ment dissenters rotate off
in lanuar,." Swonk said.

Marianna rallies past Graceville, 49-44


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Bulldogs over-
came a late deficit at home Mon-
day night against Graceille, ral-
lying back to take a 49-44 victory:
over the visiting Tigers.
The win was just the second of
the season for the Bulldogs (2-4),
but it was by no means easy, as
S the Tigers led for the majority of
the game before a late surge al-.


lowed Marianna to go in front
for good.
"It feels a lot better to win than,
it does to lose," MHS coach Tra-
vis Blanton said after the game.
"We haven't felt good very much
around here latel."
Quay Royster scored 14 points
to lead the Bulldogs, while An-
thony Speights added 10.
Marquis White had 16 points
to lead the Tigers.
The game was challenging for


both coaches due to the fact that
both clubs had games Friday
night and had limited prepara-
tiontime, but Graceville certain-
ly appeared the sharper team at
the start.
A 3-pointer by Rasheed Camp-
bell and a bucket and two free
throws by \W"hite gave the Ti-
gers an 11-4 lead late in the first
quarter.
Early in the second period,
NMarianna went on a 7-0 spurt


thanks to five points from Roys-
ter and a basket by Keyman Bor-
ders on a pass from Royster to tie
the game at 13-13 with 5:38 left
in the half.
But White answered with a 3-
pointer and a 3-point play on an
offensive put-back to quickly put
the Tigers back up six.
Graceville led by four at half-
time and pushed the lead to
28-19 early in the third after a 3-
pointer by Marquavious Johnson


and another basket by Johnson
off of a Marianna turnover.
The Tigers kept the lead at 36-
31 entering the fourth \when the
Bulldogs made their run.
A basket by Speights was fol-
lowed by a Marianna steal and
a lay-up by Shaquarious Baker,
with Speights scoring again mo-
ments later to give the Bulldogs a
37-36 lead with 6:33 to play.

Unbeaten Tigers try to

dW er, t, choran c-om

A Just as they did last year, the NMalone Ti-
S- gers are off to a red hot start to the season.
The Tigers hope, however, that they can
finish off this season with as much mo-
mentum as they started it with.
Nlalone is 7-0 after taking a 74-58 w in
over Laurel Hill on Friday in the Tigers'
Homecoming, with Chai Baker scoring 20
points, LaDarius NlcEIroy 12, and Ty Baker
It was the sixth winr of 15 or more points
this season for the Tigers, with the only
single digit win coming at Mlarianna
against the Bulldogs in a gym where Nlalo-
ne hadn't won in half a decade.
But Tigers coach Steven Welch said he is
String his best to keep things in perspec-
tive and keep his players grounded.
"We try to ignore it as much as we can,"
the coach said of the undefeated record.
"We don't want to get away from what
we've been doing. We just want to focus
every day on the little things like rebound-
ig;, playing unselfishly, paying hard, and
playing for each other."
Last season, the Tigers started out 11-
S1, but faded down the stretch, losing the
district to FAlIU and eventually getting
knocked out of the playoffs by the Baby
Rattlers as well.
"That's kind of why we're ignoring the
record," Welch said. "It's fickle. Any time
you've got a bunch of guys playing well,
things can start to go poorly for no appar-
ent reason. We're trying to focus on the
little things. I don't know if last year we got
away from that, but something happened.

ing by a point on the road last week against
Cottondale.
They Lady Tigers had no trouble at all with
Vernon, scoring the first 10 points of the game
and jumping out to a 27-5 halftime lead.
Tiara Sorey had 13 points and five steals to
lead Graceville. whileWynterra Pittman had 12
points, eight rebounds, and five assists.
Taylor McDaniel added six points and siL
rebounds.
"I thought we played in spurts," Grace\ille
coach Jpn Habali said. "Our pressure looked
nice, but we still need to finish around the bas-
ket better. But the subs got a lot of playing time,
and we're going to need them to start stepping
up and playing more and contributing more to
the team."
Graceville was scheduled to travel o \Wewa-
hitchka on Tuesday night to take on the Lady
Gators before going on the road Thursday to
take on Ponce De Leon.

Titans
Fromrr age le

It was the Raiders that
got on the board first on
a touchdown run by Isaac
Smith, but the extra point
failed, leaving the lead at
6-0.

time, that's my job to pre-
pare for it because I don't
want the same thing to
happen this year."
However, the coach said
that he believes this is a dif-
ferent team than last year,
primarily because of its im-
provemen't on one side of
the court particularly.
"Last year, we were play-
ing very well offensively
early in the year and shoot-
ing the -ball well, but this
S year its different," Welch
said. "We're just kind of
grinding our way through
it defensivel; We really
haven't played that well of-
fensively yet. We've been
terrible from the free throw\
line, and we're not shooting
it as ,velI as I know we can.


ed with a score on their
next drive, as Malachi
NlcNealy found the end
zone on a 30-yard reverse
play to rie it up.
Quarterback Caleb Cal-
lahan ran it in for the ex-
tra point to give the Titans
a ;-6 lead at halftime.
Callahan added to
the Titans lead early in
the third quarter with


"W\e've been doing it
mainly with otur defense.
If we can get some things
cleaned up and play better
offensively, I can see where
we can get a lot better this
year.
The Tigers will get their
next test Thursday night
when a physical and ath-
letic Sneads team comes to
Malone for a county battle.
The Pirates were 4-2 going
into Tuesday night's game
against Ponce De Leon, and
Welch said he expected his
team to be challenged from
start to finish.
"The last time I saw them
was this summer, but
they're typical Sneads," he
said. "They're physical, they
play hard, and they have
the ability to make shots.
(lohn) Locke's tough, and
IAaron; Green's good too.
They have good guards,
and' any time you've got


a touchdown run, and
converted the extra point
again to make it 14-6.
Blake Donaldson scored
for the Raiders late in the
fourth quarter from 2
yards out after a 50-yard
run by Mlax Olds set up a
first and goal.
The Raiders got the
ball back with one last
chance to go ahead, but


good guards, you've got a
chance. iSneadsl coach
Kelvin Ilohnson does a
good job with them."
Malone will be with-
out starting guard and
top perimeter defender
Chris Mlurff, who is out of
town due to a death in the
family.
With Thursday's game
being the first of three
straight the Tigers go to
Bainbridge, Ga., on Friday
and Saturday for games


Grant Williams picked up
a key sack to help seal the
victory.
Following the game,
Raiders coach Rex Torbett
said his team made some
.mistakes, but he gave,
credit to the Titans for the:
win. *
"Offensively, we put the
ball on the ground too.
many times, and they
always seemed to be on
critical plays.", he said.
"But the Titans played a
great game and deserved
to win"
.. In the %%in over the Ea-
gles, Smith ran for 43-yard
touchdown on the first
play from scrimmage.
On the Raiders' third
possession, Caleb Torbett
ran for a 49-yard touch-
down to put the Raiders
up 13-0 at the half.
In the second half. Tor-
bett picked up another
TD on a 4-yard run, while
Tucker Moody had a 9-
yard TD run.


against Bainbridge and Val-
dosta being a man down
could be tough on the team
physically.
'I'm assuming it will be
preny difficult, but we don't
want to make any excuses,"
Welch said. "But Nlurff is
our vocal leader, the guy
that gets everybody going.
.Without him, the question
is if someone will fill that
role. If not, we might be in
trouble. That's my biggest
concern.


Bulldogs
From Page 1B

GHS again respond-
ed, however, as John-
son scored on a'lay-
up, and White and
Isam Britt each scor-
ing buckets to make it
a 42-37 Tiger lead with
3:33 remaining.
A 3-point play by
Royster brought the
margiri back to two,
and a 3-pointer play
by Trae' Pringley tied
it up at 43-43 with 2:30
to play.
Trailing by a point
with under a minute to
play, the Bulldogs got a
pair of big plays to go
ahead, with Speights
blocking a Graceville
shot at one end, and
Royster finishing the
play at the other end
with a lay-up to make
it 45-44 with 46 sec-
onds on the clock.
After getting a de-
fensive stop on the


Tigers' next, posses-
sion, Marianna scored
again on a lay-up by
Borders to push' the
lead to three.
After Johnson missed
a 3-point attempt
for Graceville, Baker
made two free throws
with 6.5 seconds left
to seal the win.
Baker and Borders
each had six points
for MHS, while Camp-
bell added nine for
Graceville, and John-
son eight.
"I thought we played
hard," Graceville
coach latt Anderson
said. "We just had way
too. many turnovers
and we didn't execute
at the end."
Graceville was
scheduled to go to
Wewahitchka for a key
district game against
the Gators on Tuesday
night, while Marianna
was off until Friday's
key league contest
against Pensacola
Catholic.

Wie in

contention-

at Dubai

Masters
The Associated Press

DUBAI, United: Arab
Emirates Michelle Wie
is looking for a strong fin-
ish to a season she calls
S"a' work in
progress"
after being
hindered
by injuries,
and rtinker-
ing with her
S Wie swing.
The. 22-;
Syear-old American his
fallen to 17th in the rank-
ings after spending much
of 2010 in the top 10. And
o with only two,.second-
place finishes this season,
ishe called this year"a work
in progress."
"I had a couple of good
Finishes. But it is frustrat-
ing just because some-
times weeks didn't go my
way, but at the same time
you learn every week," said
S Wie, who struggled with a
back injury toward the end
of 2010.
Ever week I gave it my
all and as frustrated as I
, can be, I try to take a posi-
tive from it, and I feel like
I improved quite a bit,"
Wie said. "\Vhether or not
my results show it or not,
I'm feeling like I'm get-
ting healthy again with my
body. My body feels pretty
good."
WVie is among the biggest
names at the Dubai Ladies
Masters, the season-end-
ing European Tour event
which starts Wednesday.
Lexi Thompson, the 16-
year-old American who
became the youngest win-
ner on the LPGA Tour in
September, is expected to
challenge alongside sever-
al top Europeans, includ-
ing Anna Nordq\ist.

No surprise, Donald is player of the year


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE Al-
ready No. 1 in the world,
Luke Donald now is No.
1 in the eyes of PGA Tour,
players.
Donald capped offa sen-
sational season Tuesday by
winning PGA Tour player
of the year, the most sig-'
nificant of the postseason
awards because it's a vote
of the players.
He became the first Brit-
ish player to win the award
since it began in 1990?
"It's ,a great honor to
cap off what has been an
amazing year for me,",
Donald said from the Aus-
tralian Masters in Mel-
bourne. "Thank you to all


the players for their votes.
There was obviously some
other worthy people to
vote for, and I guess-.my
overall consistency and
having to go to Disney and.
win, and win the money
list like I did, was a decid-
ing factor..
"I feel very honored at
the moment."
Donald won the award'
over Keegan Bradley, Bill
Haas, Webb Simpson and
Nick Watney. An official
familiar with the results
described it as a landslide.,
The official spoke on con-
dition nof anonymity be-7
cause the tour does not
release the votes or the
order in which the players
finished.


,T i : :.,:l-Tr H ;c :
After finishing third at the Dubai World Golf Championship
last week, Luke Donald won both the European and PGA Tour
money titles. The first time any golfer had accomplished the


Bradley, whose two wins
included the PGA Cham-
pionship, was voted rookie
of the year.
It was only the fifth time
in the last two decades

that the PGA Tour.,player
of the year did not win a
major. Even so, Donald
made a compelling case,
especially at the end of the
year.


He won two tourna-
ments, as much as any-
one else this year. He won
the Vardon Trophy for the
lowest ,adjusted scoring
average. He had top 10s-in
14 of the 19 tournaments
he played, a rate of con-
sistency only Tiger Woods
has known in this era.
But it still came down to
the end of the year.
Simpson won twice in
the last three months of
the season, and entered
the McGladrey Classic to
try to capture the money,
title.
He took over the lead
with his runner-up finish,
and Donald decided to
enter the season finale at
Disney.

Horoscope
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Keep faith in
yourself and your ideas,
'even if others are not fully
in accord. Chances are,
it won't be you who is off
track, but your boorish
associates.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) If you know you lack
the necessary knowledge
concerning a commercial
involvement, don't hesi-
tate to rely on a trustwor-
thy associate.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Once others see that
you are not trying to put
anything over on them,
they will treat you fairly in
turn.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Conditions in gen-
eral look to be extremely
favorable where your work
or career is concerned.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Yield to your need to
spend some relaxing time
with good friends and com-
panions. You don't have to
penalize your budget.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Allocate a reasonable
amount of time to tending
to the needs of those you
love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
There are a couple of dy-
namic forces at work with-
in you that could vield you
much success.
,CANCER (June 21-July 22)
It is admirable how gen-
erous you are with your
resources. You'll hot only
spend them on things you
want, but also put them
toward supplying pleasure
for others as well.
.LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Because your showman-
ship qualities will be very
much in evidence, every-
thing you do will carry a
flair for the dramatic and
even attract an audience.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You'll likely choose to
operate in the background,
planting your ideas in the
minds of associates.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct, 23)
Maintain a positive at-
titude and a victor's vision,
and all the dealings you
have with large groups will
come off well.

22) Freed from the bur-
den of your own spurious
premonitions, you'll begin
to make slow but definite
improvements.

Dear Annie: I am a recently divorced 40-
year-old woman and have started seeing
someone I really enjoy being with.
My problem is, four years ago, I had to
have four of my front teeth pulled due to
a gum disease. I am wondering when and
how to tell this man my teeth are fake. I
want him to know, but I am embarrassed
and scared of his reaction. Please help.
-TOOTHLESS IN PENNSYLVANIA

Dear Toothless: Unless you are afraid
your teeth will come loose with vigor-
ous kissing, this is one of those things
that don't require revelation until the
relationship has progressed to physical
intimacy. Hopefully, he will care enough
about you that it won't bother him when
you say, "There's something you should
know about my teeth."

Dear Annie: I am "Spell Check Is .our
Friend." I wrote about a college friend
who is a special-ed teacher with poor


Bridge


The count signal doesn't occur often at the
bridge table, especially below the expert ranks.
Yes, a high-low (an echo) to show a doubleton
when you hope to trump the third round of the
suit occurs from time to time. However, there is
one time you must give a count signal, playing
your lowest with an odd number of cards in the
suit, or starting an echo with an even number.
South is in three no-trump. West leads the
spade queen. How should the.play proceed?
South's rebid shows 18, 19 or a so-so 20 points,
and is in principle game-forcing. At trick one,
East must play his eight, the high card being
an attitude signal saying that he has'the king.
South will probably duck. Then West should
continue with the spade nine, the bottom of his
sequence. East will overtake with his king and
return the suit.
South has seven winners: one spade, one
heart and five clubs. He needs to get two dia-
monds. South does best to lead a diamond at
trick four, not tell the defenders that he has
five club tricks. Since South has at least two
diamonds, West ducks and notes his partner's
two. Since this must be East's lowest, it shows
an odd number of diamonds, which West as-
sumes is three. He wins the second diamond
with his ace, cashes his spade winner, and exits
with a heart or a club. Now the contract must
go down one.


English skills. I was stunned at the re-
sponses. It seems most people feel that
as long as a teacher is a nice person, it
doesn't matter whether she is qualified to
do the job.
I am not spiteful or jealous. I am simply
concerned about the children who are
learning improperly. And although they
are special-ed kids, they are not babies.
They are fifth and sixth-graders. Trust
me, I'm talking about endless run-on
sentences, no knowledge of homonyms
or punctuation and repeat misspellings
of basic common words. Yes, she is a very
nice person, but would you want your
kids in her classroom? I wouldn't.
Today my friend posted on Facebook
that she is worried about the upcoming
evaluations. I didn't call the Board of Ed
about her, but I still wonder whether I
should. My intent is not to get her fired.
Rather, it is to get her into an English
refresher course.

College Football


THI : "T
Braxton Miller and Ohio State will face off against Florida in
the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville on January 2nd.


' Tis the season,


college football


Goes bowling


The i -.,3i7i ld 'Pre- ,

Like it or not, the BCS
; championship game will
be a rematch between LSU
and Alabama.
Oklahoma State com-
plained it should have had
a shot at the top-ranked
Tigers, BCS bashers had
more fodder for the we-
need-a-playoff debate and
many fans scrunched up
their noses at the thought
of another field goal-kick-
ing contest like the pre-
vious incarnation of the
Game of the Century.
The good news, particu-
larly if you're in the no-re-
match camp, is that there
are 34 other bowl games
with some great players.
great matchups and 'even
some interesting nick-
names, starting with that
rascally Honey Badger in
the Bayou.
Here's a rundown of
some of the things to look
for over the next month or
so:
TOP GAMES

Even if you're not a fan
of LSU and Alabama get-
ting a return engagement
in the BCS tide game, you
HAVE to watch. It is for the
national tide, after all.
But there are plenty
of other games worth
watching.
Fiesta Bowl, Stanford
vs. Oklahoma State, Jan.
2, Glendale, Ariz. If the
national championship
game were to have an un-
dercard, this could be it.
lnvo great offenses, two
great quarterbacks in An-
drew Luck and Brandon
Weeden expect lots of
yards and points in what
has the potential to be the
most entertaining bowl of
them all.
Rose Bowl, Wisconsin
vs. Oregon, Jan. 2, Pasa-
dena, Calif. Speaking of
shows, how about Badgers
running back Mbontee Ball
and Ducks dynamo LaMli-
chael lames trading jukes


and touchdowns? Going to
be some day on the couch
the day after New Year's.
Alamo Bowl, Baylor vs,
Washington, Dec. 29, San
Antonio, Texas Rob-
ert Griffin III on one side,
Keith Price and Chris Polk
on the other, not a lot of
defense. Yeah, this is going
to be good.
Cotton Bowl, Arkansas
vs. Kansas State, Jan. 6, Ar-
lington,Texas Arkansas'
two losses were to LSU and
Alabama, K-State's to the
two big Oklahoma schools.
All you need to know.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Robert Griffin III, Bay-
lor. The Heisman Trophy?
Ybu may have heard of it
- and him.
Andrew Luck, Stanford.
The Cardinal quarterback
is the fourth player to be
Heisman runner-up in
consecutive seasons, a
threat to pass or run, the
likely No. 1 overall pick in
the NFL draft.
Tyrann Mathieu, LSU.
The Honey Badger has a
knack for coming up with
big plays at big moments.
Now he gets his chance on
the big stage.
Case Keenum, Houston.
The sixth-year senior will
leave Houston with his
own section in the NCAA
record book. Being relegat-
ed to the TicketCity Bowl
after a late-season loss will
likely have him motivated
to go out with a big game.
Justin Blackmon, Okla-
homa State. The .Al-Amer-
ican is just the second
two-time winner of the
Biletnikoff Award, given to
the nation's top receiver,
and a big-play threat every
touch.
Trent Richardson, Ala-
bama. The Crimson Tide's
running back won the
Doak Walker Award as the
nation's best running back
and was third in Heisman
voting.
Montee Ball, Wisconsin.
Montee should have a ball
at the Rose Bowl.

Harrison


suspended
The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh Steel-
ers linebacker lames Harrison has
carved out a niche as one of the
NFL's most feared defenders over the
last five years by straddling the line
between clean and dirty play.
After one dangerous hit too many,
the league apparently has seen
enough.
The NFL suspended Harrison for
one game following his helmei-to-
facemask hit on Browns quarterback
Colt McCoy last Thursday, mak-
ing Harrison the first player to miss
game time as a penalty under the
league's revamped policy on such
collisions.
Harrison's agent Bill
Parise said Tuesday
afternoon Harrison has already filed
an appeal and expects it to be heard
later this week by Art Shell or Ted
Cottrel, jointly appointed by the
NFL and the players' association to
hear such cases.
They'll have to determine Harri-
son's intent when he laid out McCoy.


On Sunday, December 25, 2011 the Floridan will
publish it's annual In Loviing Miernot page.
