rain to blame
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Local entities in charge of mos-
quito control are reporting a high
infestation in Jackson County
due to the relatively mild winter
and rainy past few weeks.
Ron Block, meteorologist with
the NationalWeather Service, said
the temperatures from December
to February have been, on aver-
age, 6-8 degrees higher than nor-
mal for this area. Although the
area is about 4-5 inches short of
average year's rainfall, during the
severe storms at the beginning
of the month, the area received
about 3 inches of rain, with some
isolated areas receiving more.
Samuel Everett, supervisor of
streets, facilities and fleet main-
tenance for the City of Marianna,
said this isn't just a local problem,
but one the whole state of Flori-
da is facing. Mosquito eggs can
survive a dry season only to hatch
with rain, Everett said. His team
has been spraying larvacide
everyday for the past two weeks.
The team is also gathering
landing rates for the insects. They
count how many mosquitoes
-land within a certain timeframe,
which helps them see how bad
the infestation is. Everett said the
landing rates are extremely high.
T.G. Harkrider, the county's en-
vironmental health director, said
they've been running two trucks
five to six nights a week and
may increase it to seven nights
if needed. They are also hiring
The county has a complaint
driven program, meaning resi-
dents of cities without a mos-
quito control program or of unin-
corporated areas call in and leave
their names and addresses. The
department uses Aqua-Reslin,
which kills adult mosquitoes in
the area during the spraying.
Besides calling their mosqui-
to control organization, locals
should remember "the five D's"
to lower the infestation. Avoid

Henderson compete in
chair slalom, the 200-

the motorized rally and a
relay game with two team
members. This year, Hen-
derson is dedicating his
performance to his father,
Samuel Henderson, who
died on Christmas Eve
last year at the age of 72.
To pay for his plane trip

derson needs donations
from the community. It
will cost an estimated
$1,500. He has about $200
of that; if his father had

his father would typically

The Tampa Tribune
SA at a great poet once said of the ocean is true
\1/\ of the nation's expansive new health care law.
SV "It's always ourselves we find in the sea," E. E.
Likewise, whether you are a defender of the insurance
mandate or want the law repealed depends on your
ideology and on which parts of the law you focus.
Where some see inspiration and security, others see
intrusive rules and fiscal danger. We have been among
the skeptics who expect the reform., to accomplish less
than advertised at a much higher price, but we're alert
for evidence to allay our fears.
Unfortunately with this law, what appears to be hope-
ful news often becomes less so as more light is shined
on it. So it was with headlines the other day that the
Congressional Budget Office now thinks the health care
bill will cut the federal deficit more than anticipated
Some hailed the news as confirmation the law is on
the right track. But the estimate was. changed partly
because fewer small businesses now are forecast to
participate. Growing numbers are expected to opt to
pay a federal fine instead of providing health coverage
for their workers.
The lower participation would help cut the budget
deficit in three ways. First, more fines will bring more
federal revenue: Second, fewer companies offering
insurance will mean fewer tax credits that must be paid
by the government. And third, because less personal
income will go to tax-sheltered health care, workers will
pay more income tax.
That all helps the nation's bottom line. But let's not
forget that the price is an additional 3 million people
without health insurance, plus higher taxes for busi-
ness. The increasing ineffectiveness of the law is noth-
ing to celebrate.
Another point of confusion is how supporters refer
to net costs. The law increases taxes and fees, which
supporters say helps balance the budget. They don't
concede that the added costs will be a drag on the
The whole package of costs and benefits has always
been a slippery fish to get a grip on. The total price is
now about twice as much as the early estimates. The
heavy spending doesn't start until 2014, which made
the initial 10-year estimate of costs appear smaller than
the real annual bill will be when everything is up and
Waivers have been offered to favored groups, such
as labor unions, making the law feel like something of
a penalty to everyone else. Plans to increase taxes and
cut Medicare give the illusion of financial responsibility,
but political resistance to both will be significant.
Already, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke
warns that a risky conversion of events is looming.
The scheduled end of the Bush tax cuts, the end of the
two-year payroll tax holiday and an agreed-upon $1.2
trillion in spending cuts will all arrive at the same time
on Jan. 1. The combination could send the economy
plunging off a "massive fiscal cliff," Bernanke warned.
Beyond costs and the unresolved question of whether
the health care mandate is constitutional is the issue of
whether it will help or hurt patients. In a recent na-
tional survey, 60 percent of doctors say they expect the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to pressure
them to treat more people at a lower cost, which they
expect will actually hurt overall patient care.
We can hope that doctors can treat more patients for
less money and do a better job of it, but it's a false hope.
It would also be helpful to the success of federal
health care reform if higher taxes and fees would feed
an economic boom and lower the federal deficit. But we
realists don't expect it to happen.
The law grew out of many good intentions and opti-
mistic assumptions. But a law, like a medical diagnosis,
is most helpful when based on facts, not hope.

History an excellent guidepost
BY DAN K. THOMASSON
Scripps Howard News Service
One has to wonder whether
politicians ever really read
history or pay any atten-
tion to it if they do. Rather, they
march toward the avoidable follies
(with an apology to the late histo-
rian Barbara Tuchman) that have
marred civilization since Troy.
The latest of these historic mis-
takes, of course, came with the in-
vasion of.Iraq and the subsequent
misguided efforts to turn Afghani-
stan into something it never will be,
a democracy, all in the benighted
belief that the United States could
accomplish what no other country
has been able to achieve. Having
watched the Soviet Union's rul-
ers commit political suicide in the
mountainous hardscrabble of a
nation where tribal and religious
culture make it impossible to alter
the political landscape, America
has done the same thing. '
After a decade of slugging away
against the forces of a ninth-
century idealism, this country
is no nearer its goal whatever
that may be than it was when
President George W. Bush foolishly
diverted limited resources only
inches away from routing the Tal-
iban to open a second front in Iraq
- which was no real threat to any-
one. Now, with the combat troops
finally out of Iraq, we have been
asked by Afghanistan's president to.
withdraw back to the cities where
the Russians once repaired before
fleeing in distress.
We went to Afghanistan on legiti-
mate business in the wake of 9 /11
- to rid the world of Osama bin
Laden. The Iraq invasion let him off
the hook, until Navy Seals dis-
patched him last May in Pakistan.
In between came years of disrup-
tions to the Mideast by those who
misguidedly believed our national
security was at risk in Iraq.
What is at risk, it seems to me,
is pride embedded in what we
attempt to teach our children:
that this nation never goes to war
except to protect truth and justice
and fair play. Did the terrorists
need quelling? Of course they
did, and they do. But Tuchman's
definition of folly is an overreaction
that produces results counter to
one's self-interests after repeated
warning. There was a reason to be
in Afghanistan originally, but it's
increasingly obvious that there is
none now and that our self-in-
terest probably lies in permitting
the inevitable to happen without
the loss of another American life or
of overstressed combat troops who
have been asked to fight too long
snapping either at home or in the

accused.of a murderous attack on
sleeping villagers, including many
women and children, had served
1,192 days in Iraq and Afghanistan
and was on his fourth deployment.
He had been denied promotion,
and his appeal to be let out of the
latest assignment had been denied.
He and his wife, who have two
young children, were forced to put
up the family home for sale.
In Iraq, he had received a head
Was Bales psychologically fit for
duty? The question might never
be settled, but the results of this
pressure are hard to deny. He has
been called a good soldier and,
obviously, thousands of his fellow
combatants haven't inexplicably
committed murder. But check the
military suicide and family violence
rates if you doubt the impact of this
prolonged nightmare. Every person
under similar circumstances reacts
What should the military and
its civilian leaders learn from this
episode that they couldn't have
learned from Vietnam or by listen-
ing to generals and there were
several prominent ones who
warned that the nation could
hardly sustain occupying Iraq and
Afghanistan with so few troops? To
be trite, the proof of these warnings
is in the pudding. There is no draft
to support such adventurism. If
there had been, we would have left
this miserable scene much sooner.
History is an excellent guidepost
if it is followed ask the Russians
or the British or the Trojans.

Too many laws stymie progress
BY PHILIP K. HOWARD
The Providence Journal
A merica is basically run by
dead people: We elect new
IL representatives, but continue
on with policy from decades ago.
To go forward, Congress needs to
confront the past.
America is mired in a tarpit
of accumulated law. Reformers
propose new laws to fix health care,
schools and the regulatory system,
but almost never suggest cleaning
out the legal swamp these institu-
tions operate in. These complex
legal tangles not only set goals but
allocate resources and dictate the
minutest details of how to meet
those goals. Most are obsolete in
whole or part.
Nothing important can get fixed
without remaking a coherent legal
The flaw is not one that can be
solved by deregulation. Almost no
one, for example, would disagree
about the need to provide educa-
tion for disabled children. But a
special education law, enacted in
1975, was structured as an open-
eaded mandate, and soon spun
out of control. Today, special ed
consumes 20 percent of the total
K-12 budget in America. Programs
for gifted children get less than half
of one percent, and pre-K educa-
tion gets almost nothing. Is this a
sensible allocation of education
dollars? No one is even asking the
Congress treats most laws as
if they were the Ten Command-
ments except they're more like
the 10 million commandments.
Most legislative programs do not
codify timeless principles of right
and wrong. They are tools of social
management. These laws allocate
social resources almost 70 per-
cent of federal revenue in 2010 Was
consumed by three entitlement
programs enacted a half century or
more ago. Congress almost never
goes back to rationalize these pro-
grams. Running government today
is like trying to run a business using
every idea every manager ever had.
There are four problems caused
by the accumulation bf old law:
Too much law causes paralysis.
Over the past century laws have
piled up, like sediment in the
harbor, until it's almost impossible
to do anything sensibly. Building a
"green infrastructure," for example,
is stymied by environmental pro-
cesses that sometimes consume
upwards of a decade.
Laws have unintended conse-
quences. Things never work out as
planned. Sometimes a well-mean-
ing idea, such as special educa-
tion, ends up undermining other
Priorities change. The more
specific a law, the faster it becomes
obsolete. In the 1930s, when many
farmers were struggling, Congress
enacted farm subsidies. The crisis
ended by 1941. Now, 70 years later,
farm prices are at record highs, and
much of farming is done by cor-
porations. But the farm subsidies
continue $15 billion in 2010.
Fixing what ails America is im-
possible, indeed illegal, without a
legal spring cleaning. The goal is
not mainly to "deregulate" but to
restate programs in light of current
needs and priorities.
As a practical matter, this requires
Congress to authorize special
commissions to make proposals,
area by area. Using the base closing
commission model, these propos-
als would be submitted to Congress
for an up or down vote.
Going forward, Congress should
incorporate sunset provisions in all
laws with budgetary impact. The
goal is not to end good programs
but to impose a discipline that is
essential for a functioning democ-
racy that must constantly make
Accumulated law is not a prob-
lem our founders anticipated.

protect the open field of freedom
against too much legal interfer-
ence. But 200 years later, the land of
the free is a legal swamp. It's hard to
dredge, because those same checks
and balances apply to repealing a
law with one additional impedi-
ment. Once a law is enacted, it is
immediately surrounded by an
army of special interests. Not one
word can be changed until a major-
ity of Congress has run a gauntlet
of special interests, flogging each
member with campaign fund-
ing. That's why changing old law
is so politically difficult as to be
"The difficulty lies not in the
new ideas," John Maynard Keynes
observed, "but in escaping from the
old ones." American government
is trapped in structures of its own
making. The essential first step in
rescuing America is a spring-clean-
ing. It's hard to fix things until we
can make fresh choices.

Feds probe teen's shooting by watch captain

Feb. 26 shooting and the local pros-
ecutor convened a grand jury to

April 10 to consider evidence in the
case, said Seminole County State
Attorney Norm Wolfinger.
The neighborhood watch captain,
George Zimmerman, has not been
charged and said he shot Martin,
who was returning to a gated com-
munity in Sanford after buying
candy at a convenience store, in self-
defense after Martin attacked him.
Police say Zimmerman is white; his
family says'he is Hispanic.
"She absolutely blows Zimmer-
man's absurd self-defense claim

Martin's girlfriend, whose name was
The case has ignited racial ten-
sions in this Orlando suburb of
53,500 people, sparking rallies and a
protest in Gov. Rick Scott's office on
Tuesday. The Justice Department's
Civil Rights Division said it is send-
ing its community relations service
this week to Sanford to "address
tension in the community."
More than 350 people packed into
the wood panelled sanctuary of the
Allen Chapel AME Church, located
in a traditionally black neighbor-
hood of Sanford. A line flowed down
steps with others trying to get in.
Residents attending the town hall
meeting cheered and jumped to

"This is just the beginning of what
is taking place," Clayton said. "We're
going to make sure justice prevails."
Prior to the meeting, Sandera
Duval held up a white sign in the
sanctuary that said in simple black
letters, "Justice for Trayvon."
"We want justice for Trayvon be-
cause this is a senseless crime," said
Duval, 62, a retired nurse. "That

was Martin who cried out when a
man bearing a 9mm handgun came
at him. Police said Zimmerman was
bleeding from his nose and the back
of his head, and told police he had
yelled out for help before he shot
Martin, who was in town from
Miami to visit his father in Sanford,
called his 16-year-old girlfriend in
Miami several times on Feb. 26, in-
cluding just before the shooting,
Crump said. The discovery of the
lengthy conversations, including
one moments before the shooting,
was made over the weekend by Mar-
tin's father by checking his son's cell
phone log, Crump said.
The teenager told the girl on his
way back from the store he'd taken
shelter from the rain briefly at an
apartment building in his father's
gated community, Crump said. Mar-
tin then told the girl he was being
followed and would try to lose the
person, Crump said.
"She says: 'Run.' He says, 'I'm not
going to run, I'm just going to walk
fast,'" Crump said, quoting the girl.
After Martin encountered Zim-
merman, the girl thought she heard
a. scuffle "because his voice chang-
es like something interrupted his
speech," Crump said. The phone
call ended before the girl heard
The last call was at 7:12 p.m. Police
arrived at 7:17 p.m. to find Martin
lying face down on the ground.
Zimmerman was handcuffed after
police arrived and taken into custody
for questioning, but was released by
police without being charged. Police
have interviewed Zimmerman two
times since then.
Crump called the treatment pa-
tently unfair and asked if Martin
would have received the same treat-
ment if he had been the shooter.
"We will not rest until he is arrest-
ed. The more time that passes, this
is going to be swept under the rug,"
Crump said he plans to turn over
information about the call to fed-
eral investigators; a grand jury in
Seminole County is also likely to
subpoena the records. The Florida
Department of Law Enforcement is
also involved in the state case.
Former federal prosecutors said
there are limitations to a Justice De-
partment civil rights probe, which
typically would involve a sworn
law enforcement officer accused of
abusing his authority.
In this case, they said, it's not clear
whether Zimmerman had any actual
law enforcement authority or if the
Sanford Police Department did any-
thing improper. Zimmerman had a
permit to carry a gun, but it was not
required for his neighborhood watch
"I think the community has the
feeling that there's some type of cov-
er-up," said Jeffrey Sloman, former
U.S. attorney in Miami. "At least the
department's involvement makes
sure it gets some review. He wasn't a
police officer. I'm sure that this is go-
ing to be a tough case to prosecute."
Authorities may be hamstrung by
a state "Stand Your Ground" law that
allows people to defend themselves
with deadly force and does not re-
quire a retreat in the face of dan-
ger. Asked Tuesday if that law needs
change, Republican Gov. Rick Scott
said "it's always positive to go back
and think about existing laws."
An online petition urging local au-
thorities to prosecute Zimmerman
has drawn more than 500,000 signa-
tures at website Change.org. About
50 defense attorneys and protesters
filled the lobby in the governor's of-
ficeTuesdayto deliver letter seeking
an independent investigation and a
task force to study racial profiling.
They applauded when Scott came
out of his office to talk to them.

"No one should be surprised if this
latest effort ends up in court just
as the governor's past efforts to im-
pose urine testing on applicants for
government benefits and his execu-
tive order for state employee testing
are now before the courts," said Si-
mon, who stopped short of saying
that his group would file a suit. "We
expect they will make it clear once
again that government cannot sub-
ject people to suspicion-less search-
es just because it wants to."
' Scott, however, said he believes
state employees should be subject
to the same scrutiny as those in the

State employees could be random-
ly tested every three months under
the plan. The random sample, how-
ever, can't be more than 10 percent
of the agency's workforce and must
be "computer-generated by an inde-
pendent third party."
The measure, which has an effec-
tive date of July 1, also makes it easier
to fire a worker after a first confirmed
positive test. No extra money was set
aside, so department heads have to
pay for tests out of existing budgets.
Urine tests, the most common, cost
from $10-$40 each.
Scott, a Republican, previous-
ly tried to enforce random drug
testing through an executive order,
but that was suspended due to a
, court challenge.
"It's amazing that the governor and
the Legislature would move ahead
with a law that so clearly violates the
Constitutional protections against
invasive government searches with-
out suspicion especially while
a legal challenge on precisely the
same issue is pending in the federal
court," Simon said.
Scott and Agriculture Commis-
sioner Adam Putnam both said Tues-
day that they already have drug test-
ing policies in place and that some
employees have been tested.
Attorney General Pam Bondi said
Tuesday that her lawyers will be
working on the case, but ducked a
question on whether she planned
to require employees in the attorney
general's office be drug tested.

mound and a six-run cushion going into
the bottom of the second inning, but that

"With your No. 1 pitcher on the mound
and'up 6-0, you think you have a pretty
good shot to get a win," Indians coach
Jeff Johnson said Tuesday. "We just made
too many mistakes. We walked seven,
hit a batter or two, made a couple of er-
rors, and struck out 13 times. You put that
whole mess together and it's going to be
hard to end up getting a win. We just kind
of gave it away."
It was the second start in Panhandle
play for Coles and the second time he has
struggled, giving up six earned runs in
five innings on seven hits and five walks.
The sophomore, who had been domi-
nant much of the season leading into
-league play, has now surrendered 11
earned runs on 14 hits and seven walks in
111/3 innings of Panhandle action.
Johnson said he was struggling to figure
out the reason for Coles' struggles.
"I really don't know to be honest. He's
just not throwing enough strikes," he
said. "In the first inning (Monday) he was
lights out, and then all of the sudden he
started struggling. I really don't know. I

Now a Bronco, Manning says hello to his new eateam
Now a Bronco, Manning says hello to his new team
The Associated Press
DENVER John Elway flashed
that mile-wide grin and turned
the microphone over to his new
quarterback, Peyton Manning.
Talk about a powerful pair.
Introducing Manning as the
newest Denver Bronco on Tues-
day, the two Super Bowl winners
each talked about hoisting an-
other Lombardi Trophy, this time
together. And soon.
"I realize I don't have 14 years
left, by any means," Manning
said.'"This isn't something where
I'm just building a foundation
to do something in two years or
three years. This is a 'now' situa-
tion. We're going to do whatever
we can to win right now. That's all
I'm thinking about right now."
Just so long as Manning's sur-
gically repaired neck goes along
with the plan.
Neither he nor Elway has a
doubt it will, and the Hall of
the NFL's only four-time MVP
was just what his club needed.
The franchise has won just two
playoff games since Elway's ca-
reer came to an end with a sec-
ond straight Super Bowl triumph
Denver's last playoff victory
came over Pittsburgh two months
ago, when Tim Tebow delivered a
stadium-rocking, 80-yard pass to
Demaryius Thomas on the first
play of overtime.
But things change, and in
the NFL, they can change fast.
Tebowmania is now a passing fad
A couple of photos of Tebow
-that once adorned the halls at
the Broncos' headquarters were
gone Tuesday by the time Man-
ning was introduced.
"I believe that he's got a lot of

"I believe that he's got a lot of great football left in him."
Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations
great football left in him," Elway
said of his new QB. And if that's
true, the Broncos will wind up
paying him $96 million over five
years under his new deal.
After holding up his new, bright
orange jersey in a photo op with
Elway and owner Pat Bowlen,
Manning answered many of the
questions that have been bounc-
ing around since March 7, when
his old team, the Colts, released
him to avoid paying a $28 million
bonus and set in motion one of
the most frenetic free-agent pur-
suits in history. I
The first issue on everyone's
mind: So, Peyton, how do you
"I'm not where I want to be. I
want to be where I was before I
was injured," Manning said, re-
ferring to the neck problem that
kept him off the field in 2011 after
he'd started every game for the
Colts for the previous 13 seasons.
"I have a lot of work to do in get-
ting to where I want to be from a
health standpoint and learning
this offense. This is going to take
a ton of work."
As far as being the man who
could bring about the end of
Tebow's stay in Denver, Man-
ning said: "I know what kind of
player Tim Tebow is, what kind of
person he is ... and what an awe-
some year he had this year. If Tim
Tebow is here next year, I'm going
to be the best teammate I can be
to him, he and I are going to help
this team win games. If other op-
portunities present themselves
to him, I'm going to wish him the
On Elway's role in leading him
to choose Denver over other suit-
ors, the most serious of which
were the Titans and 49ers: "Ev-
eryone knows what kind of com-
petitor he is as a player. I can tell
he's just as competitive in this
new role. That got me excited."
And so, the deal the club's
most dramatic since Elway was
acquired from the Colts in 1983
- was sealed.
With the new contract in place,
Manning plans to retire in Den-
ver. The Broncos, meanwhile,
have some protection in the way
the deal was formulated. There's
no signing bonus.
Manning will get $18 million
guaranteed for next season, but
must pass a physical before each
season, starting in 2013, to get
"I don't consider it much of a
risk, knowing -Peyton Manning,"
Elway said. "I asked him, 'Is there
any doubt in your mind that you
can't get back to the Peyton Man-
ning we know of?' And he said,
'There's no doubt in my mind.'"
Elway's move to the front of-
fice last year set off a whirlwind
of activity that landed the Bron-
cos in the playoffs. But the old
QB is in this to win Super Bowls
and he's throwing his hat in with
Manning, the 50,000-yard passer
who redefined the quarterback
position through the 2000s, not
Tebow who seems most com-
fortable carrying and not throw-
ing the ball.
"Tim Tebow's a great kid. If
I want someone to marry my
daughter, it's him," Elway said.
But to run an NFL offense, to
get a title, he wanted Manning. *
"My goal is to make Peyton
Manning the best quarterback
that's ever played the game," El-
way said, "and he's got that abil-
ity with the football that he's got
"He's a guy that raises all boats.
He's already made (his team-
mates) better, and they haven't
met him yet just because of the

tion and what he's done in this

Elway: Tebow took news of
Manning deal with class
The Associated Press
DENVER On the day
the Denver Broncos cel-
ebrated the arrival of Pey-
ton Manning, all the ac-
tion photos of Tim Tebow
that once graced the hall-
ways at the team facility
How's that for a subtle
Though executive John
Elway and coach John Fox
wouldn't exactly come out
and say it, the Tebow era
in Denver looks to be all
At a news conference
Tuesday to introduce
Manning, Elway said he's
exploring all his options
for Tebow, the incredibly
popular and polarizing
quarterback who led the
Broncos back to the play-
offs last season for the first
time since 2005.
"Tim Tebow is a great
kid. If I want someone
to marry my daughter,
it would be him," Elway
said. "But I think with the
opportunity to have Pey-
ton Manning's services,
we had to take advantage
of that. Now that it's hap-
pened, we have to go back
and address Tim and see
what the best situation is
for the Denver Broncos as
well as him."
A message was left by
The Associated Press for
Tebow and his agent, Jim-
at Manning's decision to
come to Denver, Tebow
took the news in stride
during a phone conversa-
tion with Elway.
"He's said, 'Well, we're
talking about Peyton Man-
ning. I understand exactly
what you're doing,'" Elway
explained. "He was very,
The next. step in the
process may be finding
a trade partner, but the
Broncos are in no hurry
to do so. As for an outright
release, well, the Broncos
said no way.
"He's a first-round pick,"
Broncos general manager
Brian Xanders said. "He's
just won the division, we
were 1-4 at the time, he's
got a guaranteed contract.
I can't see that."
Tebow's base salaries for
the next few seasons are
very cap friendly: $1.942
million ,in 2012, $2.266
million in 2013 and $2.590
million in 2014.
Teams such as San Fran-
cisco, Green Bay and Jack-
sonville could be in the
market for Tebow, at least
as a backup.
However, his next des-
tination likely will not be

on Tuesday and secure a
legacy unmatched in the
franchise's long history.
"I can say I'm a Steeler for
life and that's the bottom

wanted," Ward said.
Ward holds every signifi-

in Baylor's win
The Associated Press
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio
Brittney Griner- took
a pass from a teammate,
stepped toward the basket,
stretched out her right
arm and slammed the ball
Then the Baylor star
reacted in typically modest
"I think my team got fired
up a little bit more than
me. I got a little bit more
fired up, I think, on one of
the blocks I had," Griner
said. "But it definitely felt
good throwing it down."
Griner became the
second woman to dunk
in an NCAA tournament
game Tuesday night, and
top-seeded Baylor rolled
to a 76-57 win over ninth-
seeded Florida. The 6-foot-
8 junior phenom went
nearly 12 minutes without
scoring at the beginning of
the game, but she finished
with 25 points.
The highlight, of course,
was Griner's dunk early in
the second half.
"That wasn'tjust abarely-
over-the-rim type of dunk.
That was a monster dunk,"
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey
said. "I think Brittney is
so conscious of people
writing good or bad about
the dunk, that she's scared
to get excited sometimes
and celebrate a dunk,
because she's been written
about in a negative way.
I said, 'Honey, if I could
dunk it, I'd do backflips
down the floor.'"
Odyssey Sims added 14
points for Baylor (36-0).
Azania Stewart led Florida
(20-13) with 14.
Candace Parker of
Tennessee dunked twice
in an NCAA tournament
game in 2006 against
Army. Griner's dunk was
her first of the season and
sixth of her career. Parker
holds the career record
Baylor led 35-26 at
halftime, but Griner was
only beginning to assert
herself. She scored eight
points in the first half,
including six in the final
"It was hard to get her
touches," Mulkey said. "I
go back to what I've said all
along. I don't care how you
guard Griner. We've seen it
all. If you guard her with
two and three, the other
positions are going to be
exposed and we will score.
If you guard her with one
-you saw what happened,
tonight when they guarded
her with one."
Griner began the second
half with a turnaround and
a layup. Then Kimetria.
Hayden came up with an
offensive rebound near the
basket and passed to an
open Griner, who dunked
for the first time since Feb.
19, 2011, at Texas Tech.

Stewart said. "We said that

Baylor hasn't lost since
falling in the quarterfinals
of last year's NCAA
tournament. The Lady

playing only 22 minutes

rout of UC Santa Barbara.

When the game started,
Griner was called for
an early charging foul
when she tried to dribble
coast to coast following a
defensive rebound. She
didn't attempt a shot until
about midway through the
half and didn't score until a
layup with 8:18 remaining.
The Gators used a zone
defense to deny Griner the
ball inside, and although
Baylor led 26-11 at one
point, Florida answered
with a 9-0 run.
Griner then scored six
quick points for the Lady
Bears two free throws,
a putback and a shot from
out near the free throw line.
The Gators kept answering
for the rest of the half, but
that stretch was a sign of
things to come for Griner.
Griner went 8 of 14
from the field with nine
rebounds and six blocks.
Florida beat Ohio State
in the first round, defiantly
holding off the Buckeyes
in front of a partisan
crowd in northwest Ohio.
The Gators didn't back
down from Baylor either.

Phoenix Suns' Grant Hill (33) trails Miami Heat's LeBron James (6) as he goes for a layup during the second half of their game
in Miami on Tuesday.
Heat score 17 straight late, rally past Suns
The Associated Press
MIAMI Chris Iosh scored 29
points, LeBron James survived two
scary falls and the Miami Heat used
a 17-0 fourth-quarter run to erase a
10-point deficit and beat the Phoe-
nix Suns 99-95 on Tuesday night for
their 14th straight home victory.
James finished with 20 points, Dw-
yane Wade had 19, and Udonis Has-
lem added a season-high 15 for the
Heat, who survived, two huge late
scares a double-digit hole, and a
frightening collision between James
and Grant Hill in the final minute.
James was chasing a long pass and
never saw Hill, crashing into him.
James went down, failing on his first
attempt to get up and stayed on the
court holding his head for about a
minute. He remained in the game
after a timeout.
Hill led Phoenix with 19 points.
Marcin Gortat had 13, MarkieffMor-.
ris 12, Jared Dudley 10 and Steve
Nash finished with nine points and
The Suns had the NBAs second-
best record since Feb. 19, having
won 11 of their last 14 coming in.
Shannon Brown's 3-pointer with
7:29 lefteput Phoenix up 90-80, but
the Suns missed their next 10 shots.
James, Wade and Haslem all made
a pair of free throws to start Miami's
late run, and the Heat tied it when
Mario Chalmers stole the ball from
Nash and set up Wade for a break-
Bosh made two more foul shots
to put the Heat up for good, Wade
made a layup while sprawling to
the floor and stretched the lead to
95-90 after Suns coach Alvin Gen-
try was called for a technical, and
James' jumper with 1:52 left capped
the flurry. Miami made 13 of 16 free
throws in the final quarter, while
Phoenix was only 3 for 4.
The Suns missed four. straight
shots at the rim in one stretch, all in
a span of 34 seconds, and the Heat
started to roll.
James had another hard fall in the
early going, hitting the floor hard
and coming up wincing. On a drive
into the lane, James was hit by Mor-
ris and reached back with his right
arm to brace himself for the fall.
James appeared to hit his right el-
bow directly on the floor he was
wearing a pad on that one, though
not the left and stepped away
from the foul line briefly while shak-
ing the arm.
He remained in the game and did
not get any noticable treatment dur-
ing the next timeout.
Davis takes hard shot off ankle, stays in game
The Associated Press
JUPITER, Fla. After
watching Wade Davis take
a one-hop smash off his
right ankle and stay in the
game, Joe Maddon could
make light of it.
"The moral of the story is
to hit him in the foot, hard,
with a blunt object before
he goes out to pitch," the
Tampa Bay manager said,
"because he was entirely
different after that ball hit
him on the foot."

Dear Annie: My friend "Jodi" is 27 and
very sheltered. Her parents still pay her
rent and bills. I'm worried because Jodi .
has been acting out of character.
She cheated on her husband with
a 59-year-old man. He's now her new
boyfriend and so-called "soul mate." He's
creepy. He talks down to her all the time
and gropes her in public. She gives him
her paycheck and the use of her parents'
credit cards. '
Jodi has a daughter from her marriage,
and the little girl lives with her father. I
work for Child Protective Services and
know this "dream boyfriend" is a sex
When we go out as friends, she brings
him along, and he says crude, disgusting
things to us about our clothes and our
bodies. He even tried to take money ou.t
of my purse. Jodi thinks this is funny and
says I should lighten up.
I told her about his history and that
she should be cautious with him around
her daughter. She became very angry
and said she never wanted to speak to
me again. I'm OK with that. She's not the
One bridge deal should not be that exha
ing, but many, especially in no-trump, are b
tles for suit establishment as we saw yes
day and will see today.
How should the play go in three no-trump
ter West leads the spade six?
There are five scenarios. First, East wins w
his spade ace and returns the spade jack, c
ered by the queen and king. South takes
third spade and .plays three rounds of
monds, losing the last of those but taking
rest for an overtrick.
Second, West ducks at trick two, giving Sc
the trick he is due and retaining commun
tion with his partner. Then, when East get
with his diamond trick, a third spade gives \
three tricks in that suit to defeat the contract
Third, South does not cover the spade jac
trick two. This saves the contract whenevi
can be made.
Fourth, East plays his spade jack at trick o
(Since East can anticipate gaining the lead
diamonds, this is not far-fetched, trying
make South burn up his one spade stopper
mediately.) If South does win the trick, lie
fail. But, fifth, if he works out to duck, he
person I once knew.
My job obligates me to report that this
man is spending time with a young child,
and I have informed his parole officer.
But I also think I should advise the little
girl's father, who has primary custody,
and Jodi's parents, who have secondary
My boss says I've done my duty by
alerting the parole board, and that speak-
ing to the family is a personal choice. My
husband says I don't need to crusade to
protect every child.
Finding out that the creep stays over-
night when her daughter is in the house
made my skin crawl. Should I tell the
NOT A CRUSADER
Dear Crusader Yes. We doubt Jodi's par-
ents will do anything since they already
enable their daughter to be irresponsible.
But the little girl's father will want to do
everything he can to protect his child.
You can't prevent Jodi from being an idiot
about this man, but please don't turn
your back on her daughter.

JV Bulldogs get
two straight wins
BY SHELIA MADER
The Marianna High Bulldogs junior varsity baseball
team picked up a pair of wins this past weekend, handing
Crestview a 12-2 loss Friday and topping Wakulla 5-1
In Saturday's game, Walker Roberts went the distance
for Marianna, giving up one run on seven hits and no
walks while striking out five.
Marianna struck first with a run in the top of the first
Kody Bryan singled with one out. Walks to Andrew
Shouse and Chris Johnson, followed by Seth Singletary's
single plated a run.
Wakulla tied the game in the bottom half of the fourth
inning, but Marianna exploded in the top of the fifth
inning for its final four runs.
Heath Roberts got things going with a leadoff walk
but was out at second on a fielder's choice by Trenton
Tyler Colson tripled home Colson and scored on an
errant throw at third.
Nic Helms took advantage of another Wakulla error
to reach safely, with Bryan, being hit by a pitch to put
runners at first and second.
A walk to Shouse loaded the bases before an RBI single
by Johnson, a wild pitch and a passed ball, plated the
final two runs.
A single in the seventh inning by Helms was the final
hit of the game for Marianna.
Madison Harrell went the distance for the Bulldogs in
Friday's game, giving up two runs on no hits and three
walks while striking out seven.
The bats were alive for the Bulldogs, and they took
advantage of every Crestview miscue.
A total of six walks were issued to Marianna hitters,
with Chris Johnson picking up a triple to make it an 11-
Walks and errors plated the final run of the game for
Marianna, which was scheduled to host county rival
Sneads on Tuesday night.
