JACKSON COUNTY BUILDING


Courthouse getting a facelift


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dt'.uCt hj]jlr-'r ].ll.,.rid ri .1r,, |

The first stage of major reno-
vations are underway this week
at the Jackson County Court-
house in Marianna. Stucco fin-
ish is now being added to the
outside walls and columns and
plumbing adjustments are be-
ing made inside the structure.
Ajax Building Corporation's
Project Manager Chuck Les-
ter said Tuesday the entire $1.9
million project should take
about eight months and will
be done ih stages in order to
keep public access open to the
building.
He said 16 sub-contractors
. . \.will ultimately work the job, to-
:gether engaging about 80 peo-
ple on the project.
A demolition cre- will soon
take out all the existing concrete
steps and the walkway around
the building, replacing this with
new steps, a new hand rail sys-
tem and a new walkway inlaid
w ith brick pavers to match the
s. idewalk skirting the sidewalk.
The building will get a sloped
metal roof to replace the flat one
Which now tops the structure.
All second-floor exterior win-
dows are being replaced with
new energy-efficient units.
S Masons, painters, landscap-
S ets, electricians and other
w: workers will continue working
through late summer to com-
plete the work.
An arborist has also been hired
to help workers avoid damaging
the large oak trees around the
building as work continues.

around the state.
Currentl, local officials in each
region appoint members of those

employees, and to help members

l' The proposed House bill would
allow the governor to remove work-

"': In their resolution opposing this
05 change, commissioners asked leg-
S.islators to reject the proposal.
The bill was created after some ir-
. regularities surfaced in south-cen-
tral Florida, in which some boards
,.had reportedly awarded contracts
to companies associated with

A new commercial-free and
non-denominational Christian
radio station should be coming
on the air in the fall of 2012. It will
occupy the 91.1 frequency, which
may be familiar to many local
listeners as the original home of
the now-retired WINF Christian
channel.
Establishment of the new
VNHMF channel on that frequen-
cy is being spearheaded in part
by 80-year-old Leonard Moore
of the Panama City area. Moore
and four other members of the
Health and Happiness nonprofit
corporation own the channel.
All members of that group be-
long to Seventh Day Adventist
churches.
The Mlarianna Seventh Day
Adventist Church is allowing the
group to put its radio tower and a

expected to go on the air in fall of 2012.

The l-all Street.jo6rnal repqrteitihe fatherr day
.how in Marvland-a 60-ye'r-oldcehifl engineer
at a military retirement home ended 6ip with a
criminal record because he diverted a backed-up
sewage system into an outside storm drain that
ran into a creek and on to the Potomac River.
It was not the environmental offense it seemed.
He believed the drain was connected to the
sewage system, and federal officials conceded
as much. Yet the man with a spotless record
ended up having to plead guilty in federal court
to violating the Clean Water Act, was given one
year's probation and placed under court-ordered
supervision.
The case is not an indictment of the Clean Wa-
ter Act we don't want individuals or industries
cavalierly dumping pollution into our waters. But
it illustrates how heavy-handed regulators often
S lack common sense and perspective when deal-
ing with the public.
A modest review would have shown the offense
was inadvertent and took place during an emer-
gency. This was not a case of a mining company
deliberately ignoring safety standards and put-
ting lives at risk. The Journal reports there are an
estimated 4,500 federal crimes, and many more
regulations that have been written to enforce
those laws. These laws not only sometimes
needlessly make a "federal-offense" out of minor
transactions, they also drive up the cost of doing
business.
It has been estimated federal regulations cost
$1.75 trillion a year, and one out of every $3
earned goes to comply with federal rules. There
are, to be sure, sizable benefits from environmen-
tal and public health safeguards.
But there are grave dangers in giving federal
regulators unfettered control and,constandy
expanding the scope of Washington's authority.
The outrage in Maryland underscores the need
to curb the government's regulatory mania and
enforce rules with balance and common sense.
Yet if the Republicans correctly warn of the dan-
gers of the United States becoming a hectoring
"nanny" state, they are too quick to dismiss the
need for federal regulations or the value of the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Consider another recent Journal story that re-
ported the EPA had linked cracking to groundwa-
ter pollution in Wyoming. Fracking has allowed
access to large reserves' of natural gas..
Water, chemicals and sand are pumped deep
underground, fracturing the surrounding rock
containing natural gas and allowing its capture.
It has been hailed as a key advancement in the
nation's drive to energy independence and oil
industries have insisted it is completely safe,
despite environmentalistsworries it would
threaten the water supplies.,
The Wyoming findings, which are still being
reviewed, suggest cracking can bea pollution
threat, at least in some areas; and-highlight the
necessity of developing newsa4feguards for new
technologies. Such safeguards!afe in the indus-
try's interest, as,they protect the public, prevent
costly contamination and discourage unreason-
able fears.
It is precisely because the nation needs the en-
-ergy generated by cracking that it should develop
standards that will ensure it is practiced safely. If
cracking is causing the groundwater pollution in
Wyoming, it's likely the result of the specific drill-
ing practices and the geology in that area. No pol-
lution has been detected in most cracking sites.
But to completely dismiss the possible need for
additional cracking regulations is to gamble with
the public's water supplies and health. That's no
way to build public support for the controversial
practice.
Washington's regulatory zeal unquestionably
needs to be curbed. But politiciansiwhv'rightly.

Patience with the D..



Occupy-ers is wearing thin


', ':ripp., i. H :.,j r.1 II,-j. : ,Erei c-

M/ any of the Occupy camp-
ers dug in ivo long blocks
from the White House
have gone home tot a week or so of
holiday R and R, though they left
their tents standing for a NewYear's
return.
When they comeback, they
might find intensified impatience
with their protracted takeover of
McPherson Square, soon to enter
its fourth month.
Unlike in many other cities,
Washington, D.C., officials, along
with the National Park Service, have
largely left the protesters alone.
What's starting to grate is the cost
of the Occupation. And, American
taxpayers, you are likely to pick up
the ever-rising bill.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray last
week said the ciry's cost mostly
for the 24-hour police presence
accorded the campers, as well as


the mobilization needed when they
take over citr streets is $1.6 mil-
lion and growing.
Since the city routinely is reim-
bursed for the services it supplies
for national events such as inaugu-
rations and anti-abortion marches,
Gray said the Occupy-ers are a
federal problem, and the District of
Columbia with its own budget
blues should not be forced to
shoulder the cost. Odds are, it
won't.
There's another cost U.S. taxpay-
ers certainly will bear. The October
onslaught of the Occupy-ers came
a few months after the Park Ser-ice
had unveiled a $400.000 rehabilita-
tion of the park. The 100-plus tents
have rendered much of the im-
provements to mud.
Grumbling also is growing on
Capitol Hill, where House Oversight
Committee Chairman Darrell Issa,
R-Calif., has begun an investiga-
tion into why the encampment is


allowed to stay.
And the 99-Percenters the
working stiffs on whose behalf
the movement was formed are
getting fed up, too. The Occupy
forces periodically block K Street, a
thoroughfare synonNymous to some
with the lobbyists and lawyers with
offices there.
But K Street also is a key cross-
to.wn route for the buses that bring
thousands of 99-Percenters to their;
jobs every day, and, unlike the 1-
Percenters, they hav e no other way
to get to work or back home.
So what to the Occupy-ers is a
meaningful protest is to the ordi-
nary foes a miserable commute.
And those workers, more than any
protester, are the ones who deserve
a "break to rejuvenate," as one pro-
tester described her holiday respite
at home.

Watch out for the banana peel, Newt


BY JAY AMBROSE

N ewt Gingrich is slipping in
the polls, partly a result of
the banana peel he stepped
on in the latest debate of Repub-
lican presidential candidates. The
banana peel had a name. It was
Freddie Mac, and the issue was
what Gingrich did to earn $1.6 mil-
lion from this government-backed
company that helped wreck the
economy.
Michelle Bachman said he lob-
bied on its behalf, and the great
intellectual wit this man of fire.
facts and fluency replied er, uh,
hmm, not true, not true, gobble,
gobble, gobbledygook, his usually
red face turning skull white. When
Gingrich was done, it seemed
members of a previously cheering
audience had all gone to the bath-
room at the same time.The ap-
plause abstention was thunderous.
One lesson is that, if he should in
fact end up with the GOP nomina-
tion for president, conservatives
could no longer look forward to
his debating President Barack
Obama. Despite this former House
speaker'qiick recall and ability,
to score rat-a-tat points while his
opponenr is still figuring out the
day of the week, there is a surefire
Technique for rendering him a

'Embarrass him with the

Sinceit has long been the Gin-

Sdeital common sense with excep-'
ional weird ness, there are plenty
of embarrassing truths out there,
such as the Freddie Mac contracts.

weird than mercenary. Gingrich
says he was supplying Freddie Mac
with analysis of all the ways it was
going wrong. Snicker, snicker. Even
if technically not a lobbyist, he was
lending his name to a company
pursuing a catastrophic mission
- getting people to buy homes
they could not afford.
So a bunch of you got poorer
and Newt got richer, and so did
a number of Fannie and Freddie
executives arranging to buy reck-
lessly sold mortgages from banks
and resell them to W.all Street. In
lawsuits filed by the Securities and
Exchange Commission. some of
those executives now stand ac-
cused of failing to fess up about
the extent of risk to investors, but
let's get back to the debate and the
subject of weirdness.
During the debate, Gingrich said
his Whire House would ignore Su-
preme Court rulings it regarded as
unconstitutional. He said, as presi-
dent, he might well get rid of some
federal judges he did not like and
that he would hope to see others
subpoenaed by Congiesi to explain
their wayward decisions. Even if


you agree that the courts routinely
ignore explicit meanings of laws
and the Constitution, you still can
understand that the fix Gingrich
has in mind would cause unbelie\v-
able havoc seriously endangering
rule of law.
Has Gingrich backed up from this
horrifying campaign promise? No.
He made it worse by-spelling out
a harassing technique that super-
liberals could obviously emulate
when they were in power. lean-
while, he said he is sick and tired of
all the negative ads by several of his
opponents in the upcoming Iowa
caucuses, as though he had never
turned negative, once even to the
extent of dreading Mitt Romney's
saving jobs by cutting out waste in
businesses. And this from some-
one who pretends to understand
economics?
There is a lot to regret in presi-
dential campaigns going on forever
and ever, haranguing us morning,
noon and night, but there is this,
too: Candidates, with the help of
anxious opponents and a prob-
ing press, reveal themselves given
voters with half an ear unclogged.
Sometimes voters do not rely.
oni ears. Sometimes they mostly .
dream, as in the election of Obama.
But Gingrich, with that interesting
personality of his, disrupts dreams,
and suddenly we see him in bold
relief, and some reactbysaying to
pollsters nno, noon second thought,
no.

Cnn. mayor: Fire thatkilled 5notfoul play


TheA-c.Al;le.dl d Prel.

STAMFORD, Conn. -A Christ-
mas Day fire that killed three
children and their grandparents
was a tragic accident related to
a fireplace in the home, not the
result of foul play, the mayor said
Tuesday.
Investgators were expected to
reveal the cause of the fire later
Tuesday, but Stamford Mayor
Michael Pavia told The Associ-
ated Press that the cause was
"fireplace-related." He could not
provide more details.
"The preliminary information
; is it was just a tragic accident,"
he said, adding that foul play
had been ruled out.
S Neighborssaid theywereawak-
ened by screams shortly before 5
a.m. Sunday and rushed outside
S to help but could do nothing as
flames devoured the large Victo-
rian home.
The home's owner, New York
advertising executive Madonna
Badger, and a male acquaintance
escaped. Her parents, who were
visiting for the holidays, and her
three daughters 7-year-old
twins and a 10-year-old were
killed.
Pavia said Badger's father,
Lomer Johnson, was found out-
side, on the roof of a small porch
off a bedroom.
"It appears that he either was
; string to get to his granddaugh-
S ter from the outside or that he
was leading his granddaughter
out," he said.
Johnson had worked as a de-
S apartment store Santa Claus this
S. season after a long career as a
safety chief at Louisville, Ky.-
based liquor maker Brown-For-
man Corp.. which he retired
from several years ago.


IHL A PI" l. iL[l I[ PE
Brayden Davis, 10 (right) stands by as his mother, Jeanne Davis, and brother Rowan Davis, 7, lay down flowers
Monday outside the house where a fire left five people dead on Christmas Day in Stamford, Conn.


"He spent his career trying to.
keep others safe," retired Brown-
Forman executive Robert Holm-
es Jr. said Monday in a telephone
interview. "And the irony is that
he dies in a fire."
Flames were shooting out of
the house when firefighters ar-
rived short before 5 a.m., said
Brendan Keatley, a Stamford fire-
fighter who was at the scene and
president of the local firefighters
union.
"Two sidesof the structure were
walls of flame," Keatley said.
Firefighters used a fire truck
ladder and construction scaf-
folding outside the house to
climb into a third-floor window.
Authorities were told by some-
one outside Keatey wasn't
sure who it was that the chil-


dren's bedrooms weie on the
third floor and that Badger's par-
ents were inside.
Firefighters ran into extreme
heat and poor visibility in a third-
floor hallway. Four firefighters
were injured as they searched
for the victims, including a cap-
tain who suffered second-degree
burns on his face, Keadey said.
Fighting the fire took a physi-
cal and an emotional toll, he
said, and counselors were being
made available to firefighters.
"We are devastated, just like
everybody else is devastated,"
Keatey said Tuesday. "Today, we
are trying to get our folks taken
care of."
The other victims were Bad-
ger's mother, Pauline lohnson,
and daughters, 10-year-old Lily


and twins Grace and Sarah. The
lohnsons lived in Southbury,
about 45 miles northeast of
Staniford.
The acquaintance who es-
caped, Michael Borcina, was a
contractor who had done work
on the home.
Pavia said police and firefight-
ers were crying at the scene.
"Clearly it was an unbearable
situation," he said.
The severely damaged Victo-
rian house situated along the
Connecticut shoreline was torn
down Monday after the build-
ings department determined it
was unsafe and ordered it razed,
Stamford fire Chief Antonio
Conte said.
Lomer Johnson worked as
a Santa this year at Saks Fifth


Avenue's flagship store in Man-
hattan, a store spokeswoman
said.
Holmes, who worked with
lohnson for more than a decade
at Brown-Forman, remembered
his co-worker as a big man with
white hair and a commanding
presence.
"He was a man of not a lot of
words, but when Lomer spoke or .
gave his opinion, it was always
well thought-out,'" Holmes said.
During his tenure with Brown-
Forman, whose! many brands
include Jack Daniel's Tennessee
Whiskey and Southern Comfort,
lohnson was responsible for se-
curity, safety and helping plan
fire drills, Holmes said.
Badger, an ad executive in the
fashion industry, is the founder
of New York-based Badger &
Winters Group. She was treated
at a hospital and was discharged
by Sunday evening, a hospital su-
pervisor said. Her whereabouts
were unknown.
A person answering the phone
Tuesday at the Badger & Winters
Group said it had no statement
or comment.
Borcina was listed in fair con-
dition Tuesday at Stamford Hos-
pital, meaning his iital signs
were normal but he might be
uncomfortable. He declined to
comment through a hospital
spokeswoman.
Borcina, 52, of NewYork Ciy. is
the owner of Tiberias Construc-
tion Inc., which renovates ex-
pensive homes and businesses.
The company's projects have in-
cluded a Donna Karan store and
artist Alex Beard's studio, both:
in New York City. and the White
House Christmas wishing tree,
according to the construction
firm's website.


Survey: Home prices down in most major US cities


Trhe A- ocinted Pro-i

WASHINGTON U.S. home
prices fell in most major cities
for the second straight month,
further evidence that the hous-
ing recovery will be bumpy and
weigh on the broader economy
in 2012.
S The Standard & Poor's/Case-

showed prices dropped in Octo-
ber from September in 19 of 20

SThe decline reflects the typi-
cal fall slowdown after the peak

gust in at least half of the cities
tracked.
Still, home'prices have fallen
roughly 32 percent nationwide
S since the housing bubble burst
five years ago and are back to
2003 levels, according to, the
index.
Prices are even lower in hard-
hit areas, such as Atlanta, Cleve-
land, Detroit, Phoenix and Las
Vegas. Washington, New York,
Los Angeles and San Diego have
seen the smallest declines.


Home values remain depressed
despite some modest progress in
the housing market.
Residential construction is
likely to add to U.S. economic
growth in 2011, the first time
that has happened in four years.
That's mainly because apart-
ments are being built almost
twice as fast as two years ago -
reflecting a surgq in renting and
weaker home sales.
The Case-Shiller index mea-
sures prices for roughly half of all
U.S. homes. Prices are compared
with those in January 2000 and
the index is based on a three-
month moving average. The
monthly data are not seasonally
adjusted.
Atlanta, Detroit and Minneap-
olis posted the biggest monthly
declines. Prices in Atlanta and
Las Vegas fell to their lowest
points since the housing crisis
began. Prices rose in Phoenix
after three straight monthly
declines.
David NI. Blitzer, chairman
of S&P's index committee, said
steep price drops in cities such
as Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland,


THIE . li Tl.,FL' FI" HLE
This Dec. 20 photo shows a new home for sale in Winter Garden, Fla. U.S.
home prices fell in most major cities for the second straight month, further
evidence that the housing recovery will be bumpy.


Detroit and Minneapolis were
particularly worrisome because
their gains earlier this season
were so strong.
"Atlanta and the Midwest are
regions that really stand out in
terms of recent relative weak-


ness," Blitzer said. "These mar-
kets were some of the strongest
during the spring/summer buy-
ing season."
Americans are reluctant to
purchase a home more than two
years after the recession officially


ended. High unemployment and
weak job growth have deterred
many would-be buyers.
.Even the lowest mortgage rates
in history haven't been enough
to lift sales.
Some people can't qualify for
loans or meet higher down pay-
ment requirements. Many with
good credit and stable jobs are
holding off because they fear
that prices will keep falling.
Sales of previously occupied
homes are barely ahead of 2008's
dismal figures the worst in 13
years. And sales of new homes
this year likely will be the worst
since the government began
keeping records a half century
ago.
Prices are likely to fall further
once banks resume millions of
foreclosures. They have been
delayed because of a yearlong
government investigation into
mortgage lending practices.
Foreclosures and short sales
- when a lender accepts less
for a home than what is owed
on a mortgage are selling
at an average discount of 20
percent.


Police: Neighbor chopped up Ind. girl with hacksaw


TheA c-.SOCitd Press

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -A babysitter
and trusted neighbor has confessed
that he bludgeoned a 9-year-old In-
S diana girl to death with a brick then
dismembered her, hiding her head,
hands and feet at a home where he
was staying and dumping the rest
of her remains nearby, police said
Tuesday.
Allen County sheriff's investiga-
tors said in an affidavit that 39-
year-old Michael Plumadore ad-
mits he killed Aliahna Lemmon on
S Thursday.
According to the affidavit, Pluma-
dore told police that after beating
Aliahna to death on the front steps
of the home in the early morning
hours, he stuffed her body into
trash bags and hid her in the freez-
er at the home in a rundown trailer
park in Fort Wayne. He said he later
chopped up her body with a hack-
saw and stuffed her remains into
freezer bags.
Police said Plumadore told them,
he had hidden Aliahna's head, feetL
and hands at the trailer and dis'
carded her other remains at a near-
by business. Police obtained a war-:
r iant to search the trailer on Monday
and found the body parts.
Authorities didn't say Tuesday
why Plumadore killed the child, but
Sheriff Ken Fries said investigators
suspected Plumadore was involved
since soon after she was reported,
Missing Friday night.


THI :,, ru:l[(i FI:
In a Sunday photo, Mike Plumadore sits next to the chair Aliahna Lemmon, 9,
was last seen before she went missing on Friday. Authorities said Monday night
that Aliahna Lemmon had been found dead and Plumadore, 39, who was watching
Aliahna and her two sisters when she went missing Friday, was being held on a
murder charge.


Investigators questioned him
Friday and Saturday and he was
arrested :Monday after being in-
terviewed by detectives for several
hours more.
Fries said his long police career
told him that Plumadore's account
of the girl's disappearance had too
many inconsistencies.
"Things that were said in 29 years
of doing this that just didn't make
sense," Fries said during a Tuesday
news conference. "We needed to
get him to talk."
Fries said Plumadore was


"factual" in talking with investiga-
tors, but he wouldn't describe Plu-
madore's demeanor.
A judge ordered Plumadore held
without bail or bond at an initial
hearing Tuesday, sheriff's depart-
ment spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tin-
kel said. He has yet to' be formally
charged in Aliahna's death.
Mike NcAlexander, the Alien
County chief deputy prosecutor,
wouldn't say whether anyone else'
was suspected of being involved
and said "nothing has been ruled
out.


Obama nominates


Sto Federal


Reserve Board


'TheAssociated Press

HONOLULU A vaca-
tioning President Barack
Obaia has nominated a
Harvard University profes-
sor and a former Treasury
official under President
George H.W. Bush a
Democrat and a-Republi-
can to the Federal Re-
serve Board.
In a statement from Ha-
waii where he is vacation-
ing with his family, Obama
praised Jeremy Stein and
Jerome Powell for agreeing
to serve his administration
at a critical moment for the
U.S. economy.
"Their distinguished
backgrounds and experi-
ence coupled with their
impressive knowledge of
economic and monetary
policy make them tremen-
dously qualified to serve
in these important roles,"
Obama said.
Stein is an econom-
ics professor at Harvard,
where he teaches courses
in finance. His research


focuses.. on the behav-
ior of stock prices, cor-
porate investment and
financial. regulation. He
previously served in the
Obama administration as
a senior adviser to Trea-
sury Secretary Timothy
Geithier. ,
Powell is a visiting schol-
ar attheWashington-based
Bipartisan Policy Center,
where he focused on fed-
eral and state fiscal issue.
He served as undersecre-
tary of finance at the Trea-
sury Department in the
first Bush administration,
'where he was responsible
for policy on financial in-
stitutions and the treasury
debt market.
In nominating both a
Democrat and Republi-
can to the seven-member

State legislatorslkely




to cut budget agn


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE -. It's almost be-
coming an annual rite each year in
Tallahassee: Another year, another
billion-dollar plus budget shortfall.
Florida lawmakers head into their
annual session in January confront-
ed by a nearly $2 billion gap. This
time around it is primarily caused
by an unenviable combination
of growing expenses in safety net
programs such as Medicaid at the
same a sluggish economic recovery
is expected to keep tax dollars from
growing significantly.
In the last several years, as the
recession has taken its toll on the
state's bartered real estate market
and unemployment soared into
double digits, the Republican-con-
trolled Legislature has tried nearly
every way to balance the state bud-
get. They've cut spending, they've
eliminated state workers, they've
relied on billions in federal stimu-
lus dollars and one year they even
raised taxes.
This coming session legislative
leaders and Go\. Rick Scott have al-
ready ruled out one option: Raising
raxes or fees as a way to help bal-
ance the budget. That means law-
makers will instead have to come
up with another round of cuts.
"There's no easy choices in this
budget year," said House Speaker
Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park. "It's
a tough budget year and there's no
magic bullet."
The governor has already given
lawmakers his own recommenda-
tions that will likely be used as a
building block for the final budget.
Despite the shortfall Scott has
come up with own $66.4 billion
spending plan that would signifi-
cantly boost spending on schools
by making steep cuts in what the


Sstatrespends reimbursing hospitals
to take care of patients enrolled in
Medicaid. He also wants to.shut
down a handful of state prisons
and eliminate some 4,500 state
jobs. ,
The governor's second set of
budget proposals are dramatically
different from the one he offered
shortly after was he first sworn into
governor.
Scott, in early 2011. called fora 10
percent cut for education, as part of
a "jobs budget" that also called for
nearly $2 billion worth of tax cuts
as part of his push to jumpstart the
states economy.
Scott now says he's heard from
Floridians that they want more
money spent on education so he is
pushing a budget that would boost
public school spending by roughly
$1 billion. His tax cut proposals..
meanwhile, have been dramati-
. call scaled back. This year Scott is
calling for a modest change in the
state's corporate income tax and a
tax break for companies purchas-
ing machinery and equipment that
together would cost roughly $30
million.
Scott also hinted that he was, will-.
ing to veto the entire budget and
force lawmakers to do it over if
they approve a budget that did not
include a significant increase for
schools.
Initially the governor was unwill-
ing to say what a "significant" in-
crease is, but he also says he likes
what he recommended.
Scott's budget proposal drew a
sharp response from Democratic
legislators who accused the gov-
ernor of pitting seniors and prison
guards against teachers. The move
also drew fire because the Medic-
aid cuts would fall hardest on not-
for-profit hospitals. Scott led the


nation's largest chain of for-profit
hospitals in the 1990s until he was
forced out amid a probe into Medi-
care fraud.
But Senate President Mike Ha-
ridopolos, R-Merritt Island, has
called Scott's overall budget "very
much reflective of what the Senate,
will be pursuing this year."
State employees could also find
themselves getting targeted for
budget cuts once again.
Last spring legislators forced
public employees to start paying
for a portion of their pension costs
as a way to cover a nearly $4 billion
shortfall.
Now legislators may go after state
worker health care benefits as a po-
tential source of savings. The state
is spending nearly $1.9 billion on
health care benefits for state work-
ers, with about $1.45 billion com-
ing from taxpayers.
The Scott administration earlier
this year already negotiated new
contracts with health maintenance
organizations that limited the
number of HMOs available for state
workers and is expected to save the
state more than $350 million over
the next two years.
The governor, who currently pays
$30 a month to cover himself and
his wife, also has recommended
that'all state employees pay the
same for health insurance. That's
a move,that would affect roughly
30,000 state workers, including
Scott, his agency heads, managers
and state legislators.
Rank-and-file state workers pay
$50 a month for individual cover-
age and $180 a month for fam-
ily coverage. Scott's push to require .
everyone to pay that rate would in- -
crease health insurance premiums
for some employees by $1,800 a
year for family coverage.

SARASOTA Johnny the sea
turtle has traveled more than many
people do. But the journey that
took him from the Gulf of Mexico
to Europe and back isn't over yet.
The 68-pound, rare Kemp's ridley
turtle was released into the Gulf on
Tuesday morning near Sarasota.
About 300 people stood on the
beach to bid Johnny farewell as he
swam off into the surf off Lido Key.
The endangered creature was
found stranded on a beach in The
Netherlands in 2008. thousands
of miles from its usual sea habitat.
Marine experts think the turtle -
which normally swims. feeds and
breeds in and around the Gulf of
Mexico got swept up in the pow-
erful Gulf Stream and carried off to
Europe.
"It just had the misfortune to
get in the current and go with the
flow," said Tony Tucker, the manag-
er of Mote Marine Laboratory's Sea
Turtle Conservation and Research
Program in Sarasota.
But experts didn't give up on the
turtle, which was found cold and
disoriented in 2008.
Rescuers in The Netherlands
named the creature Johnny -
though it's sex is unclear and
made sure the turtle received good
care at the Rotterdam Zoo. Then
Johnny was sent to an aquarium in
Portugal. Oceanario de Lisboa, and
afterward for rehabilitation at Zo-
omarine, another site in Portugal.
The turtle traveled so much that
the Portuguese experts named it
johnnyy Vasco da Gama," after


the Portuguese explorer Vasco da
Gama, who opened a sea route from
Europe to India centuries ago.
,bout three years later. John-
ny was flown to Miami and then
trucked to Sarasota by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission. There, Johnny was
outfitted with a satellite tracking
system that will allow scientists to
monitor its travels to come.
Kemp's ridley sea turtles are
among the smallest sea turtles,
only reaching 100 pounds. They
nest on the beaches in lMexico and
spend most, of their lives along
the Gulf coasts of lMexico and the
United States, although they can
also be found on the Atlantic coast


of the U.S.
On Tuesday, Mote staffers pulled
up to the beach in a truck and lifted
the turtle, with its greyish blue head,
out of the pickup bed. The turtle
was gently, and briefly, placed on a
platform so onlookers and the me-
dia could take photos. Then, two
workers carried the turtle across
the sand and to the water's edge.
They rested the turtle on the sand
and it waved its flippers. Mote ex-
perts carried it into the surf and it
swam away quickly to the applause
of onlookers.
"Every time you return an animal
to where it belongs, that's a good
thing." said Tucker, who was helped
carry the turtle to the water.

Tourist center planned at sensitive Jerusalem site


: TheAssociated Press

JERUSALEM A hard-
line Israeli group said Tues-
day it w'as launching plans
for a ne\w tourist center at
the site of a politically sen-
sitive archaeological dig in
a largely Arab neighbor-
hood outside Jerusalem's
Old City. drawing fire from
Palestinian officials.
The project's sponsor,
the Elad Foundation, said
:the new t visitors center
and parking garage \ill
be built above a section of
the excavation area known
as the Cirt of David, leav-
ing the ruins below acces-
sible. The foundation said
no additional land beyond


the excavation site would
be used and that con-
struction is several years
'away.:
Israeli archaeologists at
the Cirt of David, named
for the biblical monarch
thought to have ruled
from the spot 3,000 -ears
ago, are investigating the
oldest part of Jerusalem.
Finds there linked to life
and ritual in ancient Jeru-
salem regularly make in-
ternational headlines, and
the dig has become one of
Jerusalem's most popular
tourist attractions.
The site is just outside
the Old City walls at the
edge of the neighborhood
of Silwan in east Jerusa-


lem, the part of the city the
Palestinian Authorit- says
it wants as the capital of a
hoped-for state.
Israeli construction in
east lerusalem is regularly
subject to international
criticism. Critics say the


new plan will cement
Israel's hold on Silwvan
and could destabilize the
volatile neighborhood,
where Palestinian resi-
dents clash on occasion
with iewiish residents and
police.

Tigers begin tournament


action today in Dothan

BYDUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Malone Tigers will begin
play in the Dothan Downtown
Hoops Classic today when they
fake on Rehobeth High School in
the Dothan Ciic Center at 3:30
Sp.m. ,
Malone (11-2) will need to
win today to get another game
Thursday, and with wins today
Sand Thursday the Tigers would
stay in the tournament through
'Saturday.
It's the fifth consecutive year


that the Tigers have participated
in the Downtown Hoops Classic,
and coach Steven Welch said it
always provides his club with a
great experience.
"We always like coming up,
here. The best thing about it
is the open atmosphere," the
coach said. "When you get into
the playoffs, you don't know
whether you're going to be play-.
ing in a small gym or a big gym.
This helps us playing in more of
an open air -gm if we get in a sit-
uation like that down the road.
"The officiating is also differ-
ent. It's a little more physical.
which is kind of like playoff bas-
ketball. That's what I'm hoping
we get out of it, the chance to
play in a different environment


and learn how'to play through
some rough play."
The Tigers enter the week on a
high following a three-game win-
ning streak that included a dis-
trict win over Central and non-
league wins over Holmes County
and Blountstown last week.
To extend that to four straight,

with a 5A Rehobeth Rebels 16-81

be a big challenge.
"They're pretty athletic, and
they've got a couple of guards

he said. "Their record is not
very good, but at the same time,

Cottondale's D.J. Roulhac tries to shake off a Bonifay defender last week.


CHS looks for 10

of 11 against PSJ

BY DUSTIN KENT
erni1I|:ll.:.irid n cL .n

After notching one of their biggest
victories of the season, the surging
Cottondale Hornets will look to mike
it 10 wins in their last 11 games when
they play host to the Port St. loe Ti-
ger Sharks on Friday night at 6:30
p;m.
CHS 110-2) comes into the game
on a major high after hating hosted'
the Boys Christmas Classic last week
in Cottondale and notching a pair of"
close victories, the first a 65-63, win
over Blountsto.wn.
The second was a 72-65 triumph
o ver the Holmes Counry Blue Dexils
in a thrilling double overtime game
in which the Hornets overcame a
nine-point deficit in the final 2:30 of
regulation and a four-point deficit.
:late in the first OT.
Jerrod Blount scored 27 points to
lead the Hornets, while DJ Roulhac
S added 17 and Brandon Franklin 14.
Blue Devilsistandout Chris Walker
finished with 20 points but fouled
out at the end of regulation on a-cru-
cialoffensive foul.
"It was a big win for us. Holmes


County is one of the better teams
in the state, so to pull out a w-in like
that was good, especially going into
the break," Cottondale coach Chris
Obert said. "But honestly, it's just one
game. In the grand scheme of things,
it doesn't mean a whole lot. It just felt
good to be able to pull one out against
them, especially since they put us out
of the playoffs last year.
"The main thing was that I was
proud of how hard the kids played.
Everybody played real well and ev-
eribody focused and played hard,
played together and played the right
way and w\e were able to pull out a
big win."
On paper, the Sharks present much
less of a challenge than the Blue Dev-
ils did, as they've struggled out of the
gate to a 5-6 record.
But Obert said his team: can't afford
to overlook anyone. '
"(Port St. Joe) lost a couple of big
time players to graduation in (Calvin)
Pryor arid (Roman. Quinn, but there's
still talent there, even though it's
young," he said. "Every time I watch
them, they play extremely hard. Any
time we play them, we have to be
ready for a war.".
The Sharks are coming off of a 59-
35 win over Liberty County, which
followed a 63-21 road loss to unde-
feated Rutherford.
:PSJ has also suffered defeats to


*- qL- -


Mosley, South Walton, WVewahitchka
and Bozeman.
The Hornets have only lost to 4A
Georgia school Thomas County Cen-
tral and to an 11-2 Malone team that
is ranked No. 1 in all of 1A.
Of Cottondale's 10 victories, six have
come against district opponents, as
the Hornets have surged to the top of
the District 3-1A standings.
However, Obert said that it's much
too early for any sot of coronation
for his team.
"Record-wise, I'm kind of happy
and surprised with where we're at,
buthonestly as far as howwe're play-
ing, I think sometimes the record can
be a false indicator of where you're
really at," he said. "We--have had
some good games, but we've also had
some struggles. I feel like at times we
haven't played with as much effort
and desire as we should.
"The positive is that the kids have
found ways to pull out some tough
wins in close games, and that's prob-
,'ably the thing I'm most proud of.".
The Hornets had to eek out close
district games on the road. against
Wewahitchka and at home against
Vernon, with CHS trailing in the lat-.
ter stages until a basket by Clifford
Canty in the waning seconds gave
the Hornets a one-point win.

SBY DUSTIN KENT


The Malone LadyTigers will try to shake
off the rust from a long layoff and contin-
ue their momentum from the first half of
the season wvhhen they travel Friday to take
on Biountstown at 5 p.m.
Malone i10-2, 4-1 in District 1-lAi last
played on Dec. 19 at home in a lopsided
win against district foe Central, but Fri-
day's game will be the first for the Lady
STigersin 10days. .
SThe time away is cause for concern for
first-year Nlalone coach B\Ton Williams
going against a Blountstown team that he
hasn't seen this season.
S"I don't know anything about (Blount-
stown) and that's what scares me, espe-
cially with us not having played a game
since Dec. 19," the coach said.Tuesday.
"I'm a little afraid of how we'll come out."
Williams gave his girls the holidays off
before returning to practice Monday, tak-
ing Tuesday qff, and then coming back to
work today.
The coach said his team will do some
conditioning to get back into game shape
and get up as many shots as possible
before Friday's tip-off to try to avoid the
rust.
After a strong start to the season, the
Lady Tigers hope Friday is the beginning
of an even stronger second half of the
year.
"I'm happy with the way the first half
went, but I hope we didn't peak out and

keep getting better and working hard so we can be
hopefully playing in late February."
Williams came to Malone this year from Hous-
ton County (Ala.) and said he didn't know what to
expect from this team, but he's been pleased with
what he has seen thus far.
"I had never seen the girls play before, and I'd
always heard that the Florida competition was a
little better than Alabama," he said. :'I wasn'tt sure,
what to expect, but I'm certainly not disappoint-
ed. The thing that has impressed me the most has
been the loyalty oft de girls and how everyone is
committed to the common goal. ,Everybody kind
of bought in. I didn't really think it would go this
well this early.
"I just hope that none of the girls get content
with what they've done. They just have to continue
to work hard and get better. We can still get better
at defensive rebounding and better in transition.
.We've cut the turnover margin down, so if we can
cut down on offensive rebounds, we'll be in great
shape."

The Tigers had trouble
with that -last year, play-.
ing .500 basketball in the
season's second half before
suffering district and play:
off losses to FAMU to end
their season.
Welch said he knows that
questions about Malone's
ability to sustain its high
level of play .remain, ,but
he believes his team is jist
scratching the surface of
'how good it can be.
"We've heard the com-
ments before from fans or
maybe opposing fans about
how we've already peaked,
but we don't see it that
way at all," he said. "Yeah,
if we're sitting here feeling
good about ourselves, then
we're in trouble. But the
way we're approaching it is,
'yeah, we've played well to
this point, but we still have
so many things we can do
better.'
"We're hoping to stay
hungry because we've got
several goals ahead of us
that we haven't reached
yet at the district level and
hopefully in the playoffs.
We have to keep our eyes
on those goals and don't
get spoiled by what we've
done in the first half of the
season."

STheAssociE -d Fre.-:

NEWYORK- Tom Brady

"it does have special sig-
S nificance, because when I
Swas voted in in 2009, 1 was
S the third guy and I was very
thankful to be voted in,
and got the opportunity to
start because of some in-
juries and guys not going,"
S Rodgers said. "It's great
to be voted in as a starter,
that means a lot to me and
it's a special honor."
Four of the NFL's biggest
headline makers this sea-

and Harrison's one-game
suspension for his helmet-

"If you look around
the NFC, you see a ton

the Saints' Jimmy Graham,
the starter at the posi-

Bowler. "And to be thought
of in that company by my
peers, the head coaches
and the fans who follow
the NFL is something I
take seriously."

Schools object to NCAA multi-year scholarships


COLUMBIA, Mo. For
the second time in less
than nvo weeks, schools
are objecting to a reform
measure sought by unLi-
Sversity presidents and en-
S dorsed by NCLA president
Mark Emmert.
More than 75 schools are
asking to override a plan
approved in October to
allow multi-year athletic
scholarships rather than
the one-year renewable
; awards schools currently


provide. That's the mini-
mum number of dissent-
ers needed for reconsid-
eration by the Di\ision I
Board of Directors when
it meets next month in
Indianapolis at the an-
nual, NCAA contention.
The NCAA announced die
change the Friday before
Christmas.
On Dec. 15, the NCAA
suspended plans to give
athletes a $2,000 stipend
for ling costs not covered
by scholarships after at
least 125 schools objected.


The higher number of pro-
tests allows the organiza-
tion to immediately put
the change on hold.
Both measures were
pushed by Emmert and
adopted as emergency leg-
islation after a presidential
summit in August.
"The NCAA and presi-
dents step up with this
legislation and then the
universities want to vote
it down," said Christian
Dennie. a former compli-
ance officer at Missouri
and Oklahoma who now


practices sports law in Fort
Worth, Texas, and writes
an NCAa oversight blog.
"They say, 'We don't have
enough money,' and then
the coach gets a $2 mil-
lion raise," Dennie added,
speaking in general terms
rather than about a spe-
cific school. "It's really a
resource allocation issue."
The Division I Board
of Directors now faces
three options: scrap the
two reform measures and
operate under previous
NCLA rules; modify the


rule or create a new pro-
posal that would go back
to the schools for another
60-day comment period;
or allow members to vote
on the override, which
needs a 5/8ths majority of
the roughly 350 Division I
members to pass.
A permanent reversal
could force the NCAL and
its schools to have two sets
of standards, with an obli-
gation to honor multi-year
scholarship offers and sti-
pend payments for some
students but not others.


David Berst, the NCGA's
%ice president of gover-
nance for Division I, said
that most schools support
the-concept of multi-year
scholarships but have
concerns about how to en-.
act such change.
"The overriding con-
cern had to do with the
time to prepare and plan
ifor a change) rather than
objecting to the concept,"
he said. "I'm anticipating..
the rule will still be in ef-
fect (after the nex board
meeting)."

No plan yet for Brees in finale
1? ,


METAIRIE, La. A
day after Sean Payron
helped Drew Brees break
the NFL's single-season
passing record the coach
wouldn't divulge whether
he'd enable his star quar-
terback to maintain that
distinction.
With 5,087 yards pass-
ing this season after Mon-
day night's victory over
Atlanta, Brees enters the
final week of the season
190 yards ahead of New
England's Tom Brady. Yet


the Saints' regular-season
finale may not matter in
terms of playoff seeding,
meaning the prudent
choice for Payton could
be to rest Brees for much
of Sunday's game against
Carolina.
The Patriots, b\ con-
trast, need to beat Buf-
falo to ensure they'll have
the top seed in the AFC,
and Brady has proven
time and again he can
put up a lot of yards in
a single game. He had a
season-high .517 yards
against Miami in ,Week 1


and threw for 423 against
San Diego. The last time
New England played Buf-
talo. Brady threw for 387
yards.
So it's not out of the
realm of possibility that
Brady could finish the
season with the passing
record Biees now\ holds,
particularly if the Saints'
quarterback sits out.
"I'm not really aware
of the space between the
Rwo. I am probably better
off not knowing," Payton
said Tuesday of Brees and
Brady's yardage totals.


' ook bak' at 2011s best tales from the tour


Thr A ,u'. 'ied Prt::

IACKSONVILLE Mike
Tuten has spent the last
20 Years on the North
Shore of Oahu shaping
-surf boards. He joined his
brother, Tideist rep Chris
Tuten, for a round of golf
on the Plantation Course
at Kapalua at the start of
the year.
Walking down the sev-
enth fairway, the Pacific
Ocean on the horizon,
Tuten said he found a lot
of similarities between
surfing and golf.
"It's all about control-
ling your inner self and
enjoying the environment
around you," Tuten said.
That made sense to
Adam Scott, who does a
fair bit of surfing.
Ditto for Geoff Ogilvy.
who described himself
as a "splash-in-the-water
kind of surfer."
"A lot of surfing is just
sitting on the back of your
board and just enjoying
the place you're at," Ogilvy
said. "You can do it with
friends or on \ylur own.
Some of the appeal is that
you're out there on your
own with golf, too. Surfing
is similar. A lot of guys
'who go surfing would be
those types of guys who
like to get out and do their
owin thing."
For a technical answer,
Kelly Slater weighed in.
"Physically, there's
not a lot of similarities,"
Slater said at the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am.
"When you surf, you do
twist your body. You twist
your shoulders and bring
the board to where your
shoulders are. When you
catch a wave, you don't
want to be thinking about
the crowd. cameras, how
prertM it is. You want to
have a calm mind when
you take off on a \wae.',
It all sounded good in
theory until the question
w-. as posed to Ernie Els on
the range at Waialae.
Are there any similarities
-:.-benveen golf and surfing?
_-"No, I don't agree with
that," Els said.
S He pointed to the 30-
S foot palm trees lining both
sides of the range to make
his argument.
"You see a wave that big
puangat you, I don'tsee
v you can enjoy your
~ \ironment. Els said.

Oahu. Rory NMcllroy wiped
out at the Masters and
had the ride of his life
at the U.S. Open. Luke
Donald is riding a wave
that doesn't seem to end.
And late in the year, Tiger
Woods showed signs of
paddling back out to sea.

Ding-Dong
Saturday at the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am is
when CBS Sports focuses
primarily on the celebri-
ties in the field, who don't
always take golf- or
the interviews all that
seriously. Da\id Feherty
attempted to interview
comedian George Lopez,
who essentially spent
his Lime in front of the
camera making fun of the
Irishman.
Feherty decided it was
time for revenge. It was
6 a.m. and he knew the
house where Lopez was
staying, so Feherty went
to the front door and be-
gan ringing the bell. Over
and ov er and over.
No answer.
He took out his phone
and called Lopez, and the
comedian answered with-
a groggy voice.
"George! Why aren't you
answering the door?"
Lopez informed him
that his door bell wasn't
ringing. Just at that mo-
ment, Feherry heard
another groggy voice.
slightly perturbed,
through the intercom.
"\ho is this?"
Feherry froze. He was at
the wrong house.
"I was looking at him
across the street." Lopez
said. "I think I'\e still got
a picture of it. He looked
like a wet rat."


Good for nothing

Fred Couples was
outside the ropes near
the'first tee at Royal
Melbourne, holding court
on the world of sports
as only Couples can do,
while Tiger Woods and
Dustin lohnson prepared
to play for the first time as
partners in the'Presidents
Cup.
Couples wanted to
know about the sale of
the Houston Astros, and
how they could go to the
American League, and
if someone bought the
Seattle Mariners, could
the new owner demand
they be in the National
League? The'conversation
shifted to hockey, back to
baseball, a brief stop for
the NFL, back to hockey.
And then he stopped.
"You know. I should
be over there talking to
Dustin and Tiger instead
of you two clowns," he
said.
. Maybe so. But, as one
reporter asked, what
would be his preference?
"You guys," Couples
said. Nodding in the
direction of Woods and
Johnson, he added with a
smile, "Those guys don't
give me anything."

Arnold Palmer was
, asked to describe his per-
fect day. and he frowned.
"I'm in a dilemma right
now because I can't hit
the ball the way I want
to," Palmer said. "I can
do things that will allow
me to hit the ball where I
want to hit ii, but not as
far. But straight isn't the
answer for me because I
can't hit it far enough. At
82, am I going to put the
effort into it that I have to
for me to enjoy playing?
It's very difficult."


At the end of a long day
that included a golf-
course opening, Palmer
made up his mind.
"I've decided I'm going
to give it a shot this winter
at Bay Hill, for my own
satisfaction," he said. "I'm
going to work at it."
Three weeks later, using
a 5-iron from 163 yards on
the Charger Course at Bay
Hill. the King made his
20th career hole-in-hole
and shot 79.

Dairen Clarke couldn't
do the math.
For a giy who spent two
decades chasing the claret
jug. Clarke did a remark-
able job keeping a clear
head until he approached
the 18th green at Royal
St. George's and tried to
figure out what remained
for him to capture golf's
oldest championship.
He played the final hole
the way he w\ianted, taking
the bunkers out of play off
the tee and hitting to the
back left of the green.
"The crowd was roar-
ing and shouting, and I'm
thinking,'How many putts
do I have from there?' I
promise you. that's what
I was thinking." Clarke
said. "And I cotddn't get
the number in my head.
The only time that I really
figured it out was when I
was standing over the ball.
l've got five putts."
He took three to make
a meaningless bogey and
win by three shots over
Phil Mickelson and Dustin
lohnson.

.' ?011 uiF : C.I C, Urn, .erizal c L i i.I I.r UFJ


' i '- :' '1- ::


Ani'e-i's. Mailbox


Dear Annie: NMy sister is snide and com-
petitive and makes hateful comments
whenever we're together. She's a bully. I
tried to make things right for my parents'
sake, until I realized they were too spine-
less to say no to her. These days, I rarely
speak to her.
Her wedding is in three months, and I
told her I would not be attending.After
all, if she dislikes me so much. why
would she want me there anyway? Now,
of course, she is furious.
hly parents are hurt that I won't attend.
and my grandmother says she doesn't
know what's gotten into me. Frankly, I
don't care what they think. But I do care
what my aunts, uncles, cousins and mu-
tual acquaintances will believe about me
if I don't show up. If they ask what's going
on, I will tell them. but I'm sure my sister
will come up with an alternate version.
and who knows which one of us they
will believe? If 1 boycott the wedding, a
huge number of people connected to my
family will look at me as the worst kind of
person. What should I do?
NMASSACHUSETTS

Dear Massachusetts: When you take a
stand, you must be willing to live with


the consequences: Avoid the wedding
and take your lumps from the rela-
tives, or attend and hope your sister will
behave. But-we also think you should tell
your sister how much it hurts when she
bullies and belittles you, and ask why she
finds it necessary to treat you this way. If
you can get to the root of her animosity,
perhaps things could improve.

Dear Annie: I disagree with your re-
sponse to "Grandma in Missouri," who
requested payment for child care for her
grandchildren. The parents now have
resources. If they value having family
care for their children, they should be
willing to pay. The other option is to put
the children in day care. where it will cost
plenty. No one should expect others to
watch their kids for free.
PAID A FAMILY MEMBER

Dear Paid: We are not disputing the
merits of paying Grandma. The prob-
lem is. Grandma inadvertendy pushed
the daughter to transfer child care to
someone else who will do it for free. Now
Grandma doesn't get to see the grand-
kids. This is a difficult result, and we feel
she should talk to her daughter.


Bridge


A bridge player's ability to learn about the
four hands from an auction and to translate
that learning into accurate competitive bid-
ding gives him a definite advantage. This week
we are studying competitive auctions. Let's
look at the bidding in this deal.
North is nearly worth a one-diamond open-
ing, but with only one king and no aces, he
passes. East opens one heart. I Remember, aces
are undervalued at four points.) South sensibly
passes: If you overcall with limited high-card
values, at least be showing a suityou would like
your partner to lead. West raises to two hearts.
Now Nor th, with a maximum pass and suitable
distribution, should risk a takeout double. East
passes, of course. And then South should con- .
tent himself with three clubs because his part-
ner is a passed hand.
Note that three clubs can be made, but three
hearts goes down two, losing two spades, one
heart, two diamonds and one club. If either
East or West makes the mistake of bidding
three hearts, South should happily double and
collect 500.
