Woman charged with aggravated assault


Charge downgraded from attempted murder


BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com

The attempted murder charge
for Marianna woman Jamerika
Byrd, 20, was downgraded to ag-
gravated assault with a deadly


weapon, said Assistant State
Attorney Shad Redmon.
The charge was changed at
first appearance because the
facts did not support the prob-
able cause for the attempted
murder charge, Redmon said.


Any attempted murder charge
requires substantially more evi-
dence than aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon.
The State Attorney's Office has
the final charging decision, Red-
mon said. The office will look at


change the


all the facts again
and possibly call
officers or wit-
nesses to ensure
everything is
found out.
Then the of-
fice can keep the
current charge,
current charge, or


add to the current charge as it
sees fit.
On March 6, Byrd was ini-
tially charged with attempted
first degree murder after being
accused of trying to run over
another woman with her car.
Two other women, both mi-
nors, are also being charged in
connection with this incident.


DETECTION LOOP INSERTED

B rad McLemore moves a street saw into position as he, Olie Rhames and Clifford Brown work
at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Kelson Avenue Wednesday. They were cutting
grooves into the asphalt so the vehicle detection loop could be inserted into the road. The
loop uses a magnetic field to detect vehicles and then feeds the. information to the traffic signals.
They were installing the system for the Department of Transportation and had already installed
several around Marianna.

Judge Woodrow Hatcher will be retiring
from the bench on Jan. 6,2013. He will have
served as Jackson County judge for 35
years.


Judge


Hatcher


announces


retirement
BY LAUREN DELGADO
.delgado@jcfloridan.com

Judge Woodrow Hatcher, county judge
for Jackson County, will retire when his
term expires on Jan. 6 after serving for
about 35 years. He is one of Florida's
longest serving judges, along with Mad-
ison County Judge Wetzel Blair.
Judge Hatcher grew up on a farm just
outside of Marianna. His friend of 60
years, Herman Laramore, now the Chief
Public Defender for the 14th Judicial
Circuit, said it was his education and
humble background that helped hirn
bring justice to locals.
Criminal justice was always Hatcher's
passion. He was a probation and pa-
role supervisor for,six years, an adjunct
professor in criminal justice for Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical University,
and the district supervisor of Florida's
Division of Youth Services. While work-
ing, several judges told him he'd make
an outstanding judge..
Hatcher decided to run for county
judge in the 1976 election. He said he
wanted to use his skills to ensure every-
one received justice.
"The courts are the last stop as pos-
sibilities for fairness are concerned,"
Hatcher said.
Hatcher's prior work experience and
penchant for innovation helped him
implement new programs and technol-
ogy in the courtroom.
"It was an opportunity to make the
system progress," Hatcher said. "I'd
like to think I had a hand in the prog-
ress from where we were 30 years ago to
where we are now."
Although he didn't initially under-
stand the new technology coming into
the courts, Hatcher said he surrounded
himself with knowledgeable people.
"I wanted to get the court to the 20th
century before the 21st century got
here," Hatcher said.
He was the first Florida judge to use

GOP establishment starts



to coalesce behind Romney


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON-The Republican
establishment started to coalesce
around Mitt Romney in earnest
on Wednesday, with Jeb Bush and
other leading Republicans pres-
suring Rick Santorum to leave the
race after a thumping in the Illinois
primary.
But, on what should have been
a triumphant day, Romney also
found himself having to defend his
conservative credentials anew after
one of his own top advisers quipped
that the GOP front-runner's policy
positions are "almost like an Etch A
Sketch" in that they could be shaken
away and redrawn.
"The issues I'm running on will be
exactly the same," the former Mas-
sachusetts governor said in Arbutus,
Md., as Republicans and Democrats,
alike mocked him. "I'm running as
a conservative Republican. I was a
conservative governor. I will be run-
ning as a conservative Republican
nominee hopefully, nominee at
that point. The policies and the po-
sitions are the same."
The remark earlier in the day by
adviser Eric Fehrnstrom fueled
criticism that Romney molds his
principles to fit with political goals.
Democrats pounced, and by day's
end his GOP opponents were wav-
ing the draw,.shake and erase toys at
campaign events in Louisiana.
It all nearly overshadowed the en-
dorsement from Bush, the son of
one president and the brother of an-
other. He had stayed out of the race
for months, and some party elders
publicly had urged him to become
a candidate as Romney struggled to
close the deal with the conservative
base of the party.
Bush refused, and on Wednesday
he made his preference in the race
known after Romney's double-digit
Illinois victory.
"Now is the time for Republicans

Arbutus, Md. on Wednesday.


to uhite behind Gov. Romney and
take our message of fiscal conser-
vatism and job creation to all vot-
ers this fall," Bush said in a written
statement. He congratulated the
other Republican candidates "for a
hard-fought, thoughtful debate and
primary season."
His backing comes amid fresh
signs that big GOP donors and oth-
er party figures will follow Bush's
lead after sitting on the sidelines for
much of the primary season.
Romney is on pace to win the
nomination in June. He has 563
delegates in the overall count main-
tained by The Associated Press, out
of 1,144 needed to win the party
nod. Meanwhile, Santorum has 263
delegates, Newt Gingrich 135 and
Ron Paul 50.
Hours after Bush weighed in, Bob
Dole, the former Senate major-
ity leader and a longtime Romney


supporter, suggested that Santo-
rum must decide soon whether to
stay in or surrender his bid for the
nomination.
"Rick, I think, he's got a real prob-
lem," Dole, who became the GOP
nominee in 1996 on his third try,
told The Associated Press in a tele-
phone interview. "It's getting close
to the point where he's got to take a
hard look at it."
At the same time, campaign fi-
nance reports released Tuesday
showed that big donors to a GOP
political organization founded by
political strategist Karl Rove have
boosted their financial support for
Romney in recent weeks.
Bush's support came as a sur-
prise to the Romney campaign. The
former Florida governor persoh-
ally contacted Romney Wednesday
morning to say he planned to make
the endorsement.


Teacher's body likely found in North Dakota


The Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. Au-
thorities said Wednesday
they believe a body found
outside Williston, N.D., is
that of a missing Sidney,
Mont., high
school math
tea c.her
who disap-

7 during a
morning
d run.
Arnoldr rSidney As-
sistant Police Chief Robert
Burnison said the body,
likelythat of SherryArnold,
is being sent to the state
medical lab in Missoula
for further identification.
Authorities told The As-
sociated Press the body
had been buried. The re-
covery effort started Tbes-
day, in western North Da-
kota about 50 miles from
Sidney, and the body was
found early Wednesday,
authorities said.
It's still not clear what
led them to that location.
The location of the body
across the state line from
where the alleged kid-
napping occurred means
there could be federal
charges against the two
suspects in the case, Mi-
chael Keith Spell, 22, and
Lester Van Waters Jr., 47,
both of Parachute, Colo.
Arnold was a popular
veteran teacher at Sid-
ney High School, where
her husband, Gary, also


openl


worked. She grew up on
a ranch outside the city of
5,000 near the confluence
of the Yellowstone .and
Missouri Rivers.
Her father, Ron Whited,
said he met with authori-
ties Wednesday afternoon
about the possible recov-
ery of her body. "Whatever
there is to say, the law en-
forcement and FBI have to
say it," he said.
Sidney Mayor Bret
Smelser said that if au-
thorities confirm it's Ar-
nold's body, it would pro-
vide "the closure that we
needed" after the case has
dragged on for more than
two months.
"It's been tough for the
family and the communi-
ty," Smelser said. "Hope-
fully the family will have
some final closure and be
able to put the body to
rest."
FBI spokeswoman
Deborah Bertram said no
further details would be
immediately released re-
garding where Arnold's
body was found or wheth-
er any other evidence was
present.
Spell and Waters plead-
ed not guilty last month to


one count each of aggra-
vated kidnapping during
an arraignment in state
district court in Sidney.
The charge carries a po-
tential death penalty in
Montana if the victim is
not released unharmed.
A similar federal charge
could also carry a death
penalty upon conviction.
U.S. Attorney Michael
Cotter said Wednesday he
could not comment on
whether the case would
change jurisdictions.
Court documents filed
by the prosecutor in the
case indicate Spell has
confessed to his role in
what an affidavit described
as the crack-fueled abduc-
tion and killing of Arnold.
Authorities have said Spell
attempted to take FBI
agents to the site but he
could not find it.
Arnold was grabbed
from along Sidney street
- apparently at random
- while she was jogging
near her home. Spell told
investigators he pulled
her into a car and Wa-
ters choked her to death
before they buried her
in a shallow grave on a
farmstead near Williston.
Farmers and other prop-
erty owners were alerted
by the FBI to be on the
lookout for stirred up plots
of ground or grass that
might conceal a grave.
Authorities have said the
alert drew multiple leads,
but none panned out until


this week.
Dennis Stomme, 'who
raises crops and cattle 25
miles north of Williston,
said he and his neighbors
had been on the look-
out for unusual ground
disturbance.
"It's been traumatic," he
said of Arnold's murder.
"You don't think of that
kind of thing happening
around here, but it appears
some people are changing
their habits now."
Williston Mayor Ward
Koeser said the city had
been asked by the FBI to
scour the city landfill for
Arnold's body or clothing
remains. City employees
spent several days sift-
ing through the landfill,
costing Williston about
$10,000 on overtime, but
nothing was found, he
said.
The alleged kidnapping
of Arnold raised concerns
among Sidney residents
about the changes fast
over-taking their com-
munity with the influx
of thousands of oil field
workers. Concealed weap-
ons permit applications
have been soaring and
residents say the close-
knit town is now more sus-
picious of strangers. Still,
community leaders have
insisted the oil industry is
not to blame.
State District Judge
Katherine Irigbin set sepa-
rate trial dates for the two
men beginning in July.

Hartford, Alabama. She
was the daughter of Mr.
Marcus Cleveland Everett
and Lilla Dell Conrad, both
natives of this county. Mrs.
Burch was born and raised
on the Everett farm, not far
from the Alabama border
and was a descendant of
several Jackson County

Hatcher makes sure fines

Jail overcrowding was a
constant problem for the
county. Hatcher worked
to implement the public
works program. The pro-
gram allows defendants
to work for the county
and cities. The defendants
work off their fines and get
a day off their sentences,
and the local entities save
tax dollars.
A pretrial release pro-
gram that let defendants
support their families and
reduced the jail population
was also started by Hatch-
er. The program took into
account every defendant's
situation and assigned
them either conditional
release or a monetary bail.
Those under conditional
release were given special
conditions to keep the
community safe.
Programs treating those
with domestic violence or
substance abuse problems,
and educational programs
were made available to de-
fendants without using tax
dollars by Hatcher.

classes at the community col-

gated part of town, calling police
close to 50 times over .the past
eight years to report such things
as slow-driving vehicles, strang-
ers loitering in the neighbor-

"He's a wannabe police officer,"
lawyer Benjamin Crump said.
"Why did he have a gun?"
But some neighbors welcomed
his vigilance, at least before the
shooting.
Samantha Leigh Hamilton, an
auto-dealership employee who
has lived on Zimmerman's street
for about a year, said that she
once left her garage door up and
Zimmerman noticed it while
out walking his dog. He notified


another neighbor, who let Ham-

"The only impression I have

Zimmerman, who was captain

46 calls to police since 2004, ac-

Neighbor Raffle Gaffar said
he is troubled.by the fact that
Zimmerman patrolled the

TALLAHASSEE The

The Justice Department
on Tuesday notified a
federal court in Washing-

a change-of-address provi-
sion also is discriminatory.
It previously had in-
formed the court it would
be opposing a reduction in


the number of early voting
days and new restric-

shall RBI sacrifice fly in the bottom of the frame.
In the top of the second, Clay Jenkins doubled

scored on an errant throw while stealing third base.

Lady Hornets



fall to Wewa

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Cottondale Lady Hornets fell to the Wewahi-
tchka Lady Gators 6-2 Tuesday night at home, drop-
ping to 3-11 on the season and 2-8 in District 2-1A
competition.
Kelsie Obert started in the circle and took the loss
for the Lady Hornets, giving up seven hits, three
walks, hitting one batter and striking out eight.
Wewahitchka scored three runs in the top of the
first inning on three hits and a walk, but Cotton-
dale answered back with a run in the bottom of the
frame.
Valerie D'Ambrosio led off with a walk and scored
on an RBI single by Connor Melvin.
The Lady Gators added a run in the top of the
fourth inning and added two more in the sixth to go
up 6-1.'
The last run of the game came from Cottondale,
as an RBI single by Haley Boggs scored Sue Ellen
Mosier.
Melvin finished 2-for-2 with a walk and an RBI for
the Lady Hornets, while Kayla Lathan and Cheyenne
Corbin also had hits.
"We played good defense, but they hit and we
didn't," Cottondale coach Dianne Wilson said of the
game. "That has been our struggle all year. You have
to hit to win. Until the girls get their minds made up
that they want to hit and win, we will struggle at the
plate and continue to lose ballgames."

played pretty well overall,

working on our biggest
problem, which is getting
behind in the count.

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Five years ago, an encoun-
ter with a large, vicious dog put me in the
ER and left me with lasting scars, physi-
cal and otherwise. I'm almost 20 now.
I can pet and play with small, quiet
dogs, but larger ones strike panic in me.
I cringe when I hear barking. I still have
nightmares and sometimes feel phantom
pains where I was attacked. Spending
time with my parents' medium-sized dog
doesn't help, especially since it has bitten
people before, and my family still treats
it like the best dog in the world. I never
got professional help, because I was told
shortly after the attack that I needed to
"get over it." I feel no one understands
my fear because it's an American tradi-


Bri

In this deal, concentrate on what inter-
feres with collecting nine tricks in three
no-trump after West leads the spade
two.
Declarer apparently starts with nine
winners: one spade, three hearts and five
clubs. However, some players at trick one
would play low from the dummy almost
without thinking. West "must" have led
from the spade king, so why not get an
overtrick or two?
Here, though, after East wins with his
king, he must not suffer from the "always
return partner's suit in no-trump" inter-
ference. From the two-lead, West and
South are known to have started with
four spades each, and it is rarely right for
the defense to attack declarer's long suit.
If East shifts to the diamond queen, the
defenders take the first five tricks.
However, declarer should be happy
with his nine tricks, assuming he sees
how to get around the interference in the
club suit. With the 3-1 split, if South plays
off his top clubs, he will have to take the
fourth round in his hand with the eight
or nine. To reach the fifth club, declarer
will need a dummy entry and that has
just evaporated by taking the first trick
with the spade ace.
What is the solution?
Right after winning with dummy's
spade ace, play off South's top hearts.
Then, after taking the three top clubs
ending on the board, the blocking club
nine can be discarded on the heart
queen.


tion to love dogs. Besides, I don't have
money for therapy. What can I do?
TERRIFIED

Dear Terrified: People who tell you to
"get over it" do not understand the extent
of the problem. Your fear is not irrational.
You were viciously bitten, and such a
trauma is difficult to overcome. The fact
that you can pet and play with small dogs
is quite an achievement, all considered.
If you regularly encounter larger dogs
and wish to work on your fear, please
know that low-cost therapy is available.
Ask your doctor, and check your church
and United Way. You can even search
online for tips on overcoming phobias.

Saints' coach Payton



suspended for season


The Associated Press


New Orleans Saints head
coach. Sean Payton was
suspended without pay
for the 2012 season by
NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell, and former Saints
defensive coordinator
GreggWilliamswasbanned
indefinitely on Wednesday
because the team's players
were paid bounties for big
hits on opponents from
2009-11.
The NFL said it is the first
time the league has sus-
pended a head coach. The
explanation for Payton's
ban indicates he tried to
cover up what the Saints
were doing.-
According to the NFL,
Payton ignored instruc-
tions from the league and
Saints ownership to make
sure bounties weren't be-
ing paid. The league also
chastised him Wednesday
for choosing to "falsely
deny that the 'program
existed," arid for attempt-
ing to "encourage the false
denials by instructing as-
sistants to 'make sure our
ducks are in a row.'"
Handing down sweeping
and serious punishment
for a system that paid out
thousands of dollars for
knocking specific play-
ers out of games, Goodell
also banned Saints general
manager Mickey Loomis
for the first eight regular-
season games next season,
and assistant coach Joe Vitt
for the first six games.
In addition, Goodell
fined the Saints $500,000
and took away their sec-
ond-roundf draft picks this
year and next.
Goodell called what the
Saints did "particularly un-
usual and egregious" and
"totally unacceptable."
"We are all accountable
and responsible for player
health and safety and the
integrity of the game. We
will not tolerate conduct or
a culture that undermines
those priorities," Goodell
said in a statement re-
leased by the NFL. "No one
is above the game or the
rules that govern it."
After the NFL first made
its investigation public on
March 2, Williams admit-
ted to and apologized
for running the program
as the Saints' defensive co-
ordinator from 2009-11. He
was hired by the St. Louis
Rams this offseason.
Goodell will review Wil-
liams' status after the up-
coming season and decide
whether he can return 'to
the league.
The Saints now must
decide, who will coach
the team while Payton is
barred, his suspension is
effective April 1, and who
will make roster moves
while Loomis is out. Af-
ter the NFL made clear
that punishments were
looming, Payton and Loo-
mis took the blame for
violations that they ac-
knowledged "happened
under our watch" and
said Saints owner Tom
Benson "had nothing to
do" with the bounty pool,
which reached as much as


THi, : : I : 1:0F f : FIL
In this Sept. 26, 2010 photo, New Orleans Saints head coach
Sean Payton (foreground) and defensive coordinator Gregg
Williams (background) look on during a game at the Louisiana
Superdome in New Orleans, La. The NFL has suspended
Payton for the 2012 season on Wednesday and former Saints
defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is banned from the
league indefinitely.


$50,000 in 2009, the season
the Saints won the Super
Bowl.
The NFL said the scheme
involved 22 to 27 defensive
players, and that targeted
opponents included quar-
terbacks Aaton Rodgers,
Cam Newton, Brett Favre
and Kurt Warner. "Knock-
outs" were worth $1,500
and "cart-offs" $1,000, with
payments doubled or tri-
., pled for the playoffs.
According to the league,
Saints defensive captain
Jonathan Vilma offered
$10,000 to any player who
knocked then-Vikings QB
Favre out of the 2010 NFC
championship game.
All payouts for specific
performances in a game,
including interceptions
or causing fumbles, are
against NFL rules. The
NFL warns teams against
such practices before each
season, although in the af-
termath of the revelations
about 'the Saints, current
and former players from
various teams talked about
that sort of thing happen-
ing frequently although
not on the same scale as
the NFL found in New
Orleans.
In a memo sent out to the
NFL's 32 teams, Goodell
ordered owners to make
sure their clubs are not of-
fering bounties now. Each
club's principal owner and
head coach must certify in
writing by March 30 that
no pay-for-performance
system exists.
Punishment for any
Saints players involved
will be determined later,
because the league is still
reviewing the case with the
NFL Players Association.
"While I will not ad-
dress player conduct at
this time, I am profoundly
troubled by the fact that
players including lead-
ers among the defensive
players embraced this
program so enthusiasti-
cally and participated
with what appears to have
been a deliberate lack of
concern for the well-be-


ing of their fellow players,"
Goodell said.
The discipline for the
Saints' involvement in the
bounty scheme is more
far-reaching than what
Goodell did in 2007, when.
the NFL came down on the
New England Patriots for
illegally videotaping an op-
ponent. Goodell fined the
Patriots $250,000, stripped
a first-round draft pick,
and docked their coach,
Bill Belichick, $500,000
for what was known as
"Spygate."
As recently as this year,
Payton said he was entirely
unaware of the bounties
- "a claim contradicted
by others," the league said.
And according to the inves-
tigation, Payton received
an email before the Saints'.
first game in 2011 that
read, "PS Greg Williams
put me down for $5000 on
Rogers (sic)." When Payton
was shown that email by
NFL investigators, he ac-
knowledged it referred to a
bounty on Rodgers, whose
Packers beat the Saints in
Week 1.
The league said that in
addition to contribut-
ing money to the bounty
fund, Williams oversaw re-
cord-keeping, determined
payout amounts and who
got cash, and handed out
envelopes with money to
players. The NFL said that
Williams acknowledged
he intentionally misled
NFL investigators when
first questioned in 2010,
and didn't try to stop the
bounties.
Vitt was aware of the
bounties and, according
to the league, later admit-
ted he had "fabricated the
truth" when interviewed in
2010.
Loomis knew of the al-
legations about bounties
no later than in February
2010, when he was told by
the league to end them. But
the NFL said he later ad-
mitted he didn't do enough
to determine if there vere
bounties or to try to put an
end to them.

Report: Tebow deal



to Jets hits snag


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Just an-
other crazy day for the
NewYork Jets.
Hours after the Jets an-
nounced they had agreed
in principle to acquire Tim
Tebow from the Denver
Broncos, ESPN reported
that the deal hit a snag.
Tebow Time on Broad-
way? Well, not quite yet.
Citing anonymous
sources, ESPN says
Wednesday that provi-
sions in the quarterback's
contract are causing com-
plications in the comple-
tion of the trade. ESPN
says Tebow's contract has
$5 million worth of "re-
capture language," which
means the Jets would
have to pay back some-
money to the Broncos.
The hang-up came'
hours after the Jets de-
clared they were bring-
ing the polarizing quar-
terback to New York as
a complement to starter
Mark Sanchez. Denver
general manager Brian
Xanders said the Broncos
would receive fourth- and
sixth-round draft picks,
while NewYork would get
a seventh-rounder.
It's just another bizarre
moment for the Jets, a
team that has had its
share of them over the
years, conjuring memo-
ries of Bill Belichick's
hiring as coach and his
resignation one day
later.
The Jets would have
lots of explaining to do
- no matter whether
the deal goes through or
falls apart.
If the sides work things
out, "Tebowmania" like-
ly would take over New
York, just a few weeks
after "Linsanity" swept
the New.York area and
the rest of the NBA with
the sensational Jeremy
Lin.

expendable when the
Broncos signed Peyton
Manning to a five-year

deal Tuesday, would be
expected to complement
Sanchez, who received
a $40.5 million contract
extension, with $20.5 pil-
lion guaranteed, earlier
this month.
.Rex Ryan's Jets also had
pursued Manning before
bowing out on the sweep-
stakes when there was
little interest by the four-
time NFL MVP.
Tebow led the Broncos
to the playoffs last season
- along the way beat-


ing Sanchez and the Jets,
who missed the postsea-
son. But Denver execu-
tive John Elway believed
. Manning gave the team a
better chance at winning
a championship now.
For the Jets, Tebow
would add a versatile
dimension to the of-
fense, including run-

package something
new offensive coordina-
tor Tony Sparano enjoys
using.
