Man accused of robbing, beating father


A Marianna man is accused of
stealing money from his father
last week, and then beating him
when he thought his dad had
called police about the theft.
According to the complaint
filed against 45-year-old Bruce
E. Martin, the Marianna Police

Department has charged Martin
with aggravated
* abuse on a person
CIL over 65 years of
age and with bur-
glary in the case.
According to
., the complaint,
Bruce Martin Martin allegedly
beat his frail 69-
year-old father with closed fists

in an attack that lasted about an
hour on March 22. The beating
was alleged to have happened
several hours after a neighbor
summoned police to the father's
The neighbor had told officers
around 1:30 p.m. on March 21
that Bruce E.,Martin "was knock-
ing (his father) around and took
his money," according to the

complaint. The later attack al-
legedly occurred around '1:30
a.m. on March 22. The victim,
Lee Edward Martin, came to the
police station with a friend on
March 23 to report the incidents.
The investigating officer wrote in
his report that Lee Martin "could
not walk in without assistance"
from the friend, and added fur-
ther comment. "The victim's

difficulty walking is due to in-
jures inflicted.. .by the defendant
(Bruce E. Martin)," the officer
stated. The reporting officer took
pictures of the victim's visible in-
juries, noting that "he had swell-
ing and cuts on his gums and
lips. His right cheek was swollen
and bruised. His chest had some

Students allowed


messages" at

school events

Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 98
on Friday, clearing the way for school
boards to create policies allowing stu-
dents to organize and deliver "inspira-
tional messages" at school events.
The policy must allow students in
charge of the student-led part of an
event to have sole discretion on whether
the message will be said and which stu-
dent volunteers to deliver the message.
School district personnel cannot de-
cide or influence whether the message
will be said, who will say it or what
exactly will be said.
SB 98 states that its purpose "is to pro-
vide students with the opportunity for
formal or ceremonious observance of

Parts of Fort Road to be closed as bridge gets fixed


Beginning today, a section
of County Road 162 (Fort
Road) will be closed for two
to three weeks while a crew
completes its task of fortifying
the Chipola River bridge on
that roadway.
Erosion caused the prob-
lems. An addition support pil-
ing is being added, along with
materials to help minimize
further degradation due to
erosion, as well as other struc-
tures to support each section
of the bridge.
The closed area is a six-mile
stretch, project engineer Frank
Tucker ofVolkert Inc. said. The
detour will send drivers just a
couple of miles out of the way.
Drivers approaching from
the west will take Holyneck

to Highway 2, then on to Old
U.S. Road to avoid the work
area, then travel back down to
CR 162. Drivers approaching
from the east would reverse
the circuit.
The bridge repairs have been
underway since last Novem-
ber, but until now the road
has not been closed for an
extended period. A significant
traffic crash in the construc-
tion zone last week, however,
spurred Volkert to request the
The Florida Highway Patrol
did not initially issue a press
release on the crash, and no
more information on the
accident was immediately

ficials concluded that not all

them to mind the business
at hand and not concern
themselves with his pri-

The Baptist College of
Florida's Business Law
students have been busy
this semester immersed
in the legal and social en-
vironment for multiple
business operations. On
Wednesday, March 21,
four BCF Business Lead-
ership majors were able to
experience the legal side
of their business degree
firsthand by taking a trip
to the Houston County
Courthouse in Dothan,
BCF students Celia Bass,
Katie Butts, Chantel Oney
and Anda Scott, along
with their business law in-
structor Professor Taylor
Barbaree, were able to ob-
serve during a civil trial.
"We enjoy being in the
classroom, but going out
and experiencing the
business world is price-
less, said Bass.
"From our first stop at
visiting with Honorable
Judge Brady E. Mend-
heim Jr., Twentieth Ju-
dicial Circuit Judge, to
meeting Douglas Albert
Valeska, District At-
torney, to sitting in on
a Civil Lawsuit in the
Houston County Court-
house, and ending our
day meeting local city
officials at Dothan City
Hall, this experience will
prove to be a valuable
asset in our future busi-
ness endeavors."
The Bachelor of Arts in
Business Leadership de-
gree was launched two

graduates are expected
in May.

Fight claims put teen's side on defense

The Associated Press

SANFORD The fam-
ily and supporters of slain
Florida teenager Trayvon
Martin found themselves
on the defensive Monday
following revelations he
had been suspended for
marijuana before he was
shot to death by a neigh-
borhood watch volunteer.
Police also confirmed a
report that the watchman
claimed Martin was the
aggressor, punching him
in the nose and smacking
his head on a sidewalk.
Martin, 17, was sus-
pended by Miami-Dade
County schools because
traces of marijuana were
found in a plastic baggie
in his book bag, family
spokesman Ryan Julison
said. Martin was serving
the suspension when he
was shot Feb. 26 by George
Zimmerman, who was pa-
trolling the neighborhood
that Martin was visiting
with his father.
Martin's mother, Sybrina
Fulton, and family attor-
neys blamed police for
leaking the information
about the marijuana and
Zimmerman's claim about
the attack to the news me-
dia in an effort to demon-
ize the teenager.
"They killed my son and
now they're trying to kill
his reputation," Fulton
told reporters.
The Sanford Police De-
partment insisted there
was no authorized release
of the new information
but acknowledged there
may have been a leak.
City Manager Norton
Bonaparte Jr. said it would
be investigated and the
person responsible could
be fired.
Martin family attorney
Benjamin Crump said the
link between the youth
and marijuana should
have no bearing on the
probe into- his shooting
death. State and federal
agencies are investigating,
with a grand jury set to
convene April 10.
"If he and his friends

experimented with mari-
juana, that is completely
irrelevant," Crump said.
"What does it have to do
with killing their son?"
The state-Department of
Juvenile Justice confirmed
Monday, that Martin does
not have a juvenile of-
fender record. The infor-
mation came after a pub-
lic records request by The
Associated Press.
Zimmerman, 28, claimed
he shot Martin in self-de-
fense and has not been
arrested. Because Martin
was black and Zimmer-
man has a white father
and Hispanic mother, the
case has become a racial
flashpoint that has civil
rights leaders and others
leading a series of protests
in Sanford and around the
Meanwhile, the Or-
lando Sentinel reported
that Zimmerman told po-
lice 'he lost Martin in the
neighborhood he regularly
patrolled and was walking
back to his vehicle when
the youth approached
him from behind. The two
exchanged words, Zim-
merman said, and Martin
then punched him in the
nose, jumped on top of
him and began banging
his head on a sidewalk.
Zimmerman said he be-
gan crying for help; Mar-
tin's family thinks it was

out. Witness accounts dif-
fer and 911 tapes in which
the voices are heard are
not clear.
The Sanford police state-
ment said the newspaper
story was "consistent"
with evidence turned over
to prosecutors.
Earlier, city officials
named a 23-year veteran
of the Sanford police de-
partment as acting chief.
The appointment of Capt.
Darren Scott, who is Af-
rican-American, came
days after Chief Bill Lee,
who' is white, temporar-
ily stepped down as the
agency endured withering
criticism over its handling
of the case.
"I know each one of you
- and everyone watch-
ing would like to have a
quick, positive resolution
to this recent event," Scott
told reporters. "However, I
must say we have a system .
in place, a legal system.
It may not be perfect but
it's the only one we have.
I urge everyone to let the
system take its course."
The Sanford City Com-
mission held its first meet-
ing Monday since giving
Lee a no confidence vote,
which led to his ouster.
Martin's parents both ad-
dressed the panel, urging
them to take steps to arrest
Zimmerman. More than

500 people crowded into
the meeting, which was
moved from City Hall to
the Sanford Civil Center.
"We are asking for jus-
tice," said Tracy Martin,
the teenager's father.
Civil rights leader Al
Sharpton warned com-
missioners that Sanford
risked becoming a 21st
century version of civil
rights struggle in the South
during the 1960s.
Sharpton said Martin's
parents endured "insults
and lies" Monday over
reports that their son at-
tacked Zimmerman.
Outside the commission
meeting,.several thousand
people carried signs, ral-
lied and marched in Mar-
tin's support. Organizers
said some 2 million signa-
tures had been collected
on an online petition de-
manding Zimmerman's
"It seems like the police
did not do the normal
things they should have
done. But that's going to
have to take its own pro-
cess now," said the Rev.

odist minister who came
from Daytona Beach to
attend the rally. "It's im-
portant that we all stand
for justice and that the

that this is not going to be

Witness: Slain U.K. tourists begged for their lives

The Associated Press

SARASOTA A friend of the Flor-
ida teen accused of killing two Brit-
ish tourists in 2011 said on Monday
that the teen shot the men even
though they pleaded for their lives,
claiming to be lost.
Shawn Tyson, 17, is accused of kill-
ing James Kouzaris and JamAes Coo-
per in April of 2011. He's charged
with two counts of first-degree
murder and could face life in prison
-if convicted.
On Monday, 18-year-old Latrece
.Washington testified that Tyson told
her he saw the two tourists walking
through a Sarasota housing project,
drunk. Washington testified that Ty-
son said he intended to rob the two
men, but the men said they had no
"He said 'Well since you ain't got
no money I got something for your
ass,'". Washington recalled Tyson
saying on the day after the killings.
Tyson told Washington that the
men begged for their lives and one
said, "please let me go home, I'm
lost," she said.
Recounted Washington: "He shot
one of them in the side and one of
them fell instantly and the other
one was crying for his life. He shot

in the second week of the trial, a
portrait of yson began to emerge.
He was 16 at the time of the shoot-
ing, was in the eighth grade and had
a tattoo that said "Savage" on his
chest. He and friends many of
whom had criminal histories re-
peatedly watched "Shottas," a 2002
movie about gangsters in Jamaica
and Miami.
Kouzaris and Cooper were in
Sarasota on a three-week holiday.
On April 15, they went to dinner
and then had- drinks in downtown
The pair went to two bars and left
on foot early in the morning of April
16 after several drinks. They ended
up in the Newtown neighborhood
known for its high crime activity
more than a mile from downtown.
It's unclear why the men ended up
there. But witnesses say they saw
Cooper and Kouzaris walking shirt-
less and stumbling through the
neighborhood and that they were
being followed by two men, one
with a red bandanna around part of
his face.
Prosecutors are trying to link Ty-
son to the shootings by showing he
had a friend bury,22-caliber bullets
in a yard. That was the same caliber
of ammunition used to kill Cooper,
25, and Kouzaris, 24.
Defense attorneys contend there
is no evidence linking Tyson to the
bullets and that witnesses tying him
to the scene are not credible.

said Tyson accidentally called him
the night of the slaying, and Bane
heard Tyson say to someone "Who
are those crackers walking past the
park" referring to the two British
tourists. Bane described a cracker as
a white person. Shortly thereafter,
Bane said, he heard gunshots.
Bane and another witness said
Monday that he saw Tyson with a
.22 caliber revolver prior to the April
16 shootings.
Bane also told the jury of nine
women and five men that he initial-
ly didn't help police in the case. But
in May of 2011, Bane was charged
with carrying a concealed weapon
- a felony and he eventually told
authorities what he knew about the
tourist shootings. Bane said his own
charge was reduced to a misde&
meanor and 11 months' probation
in exchange for cooperating.
Bane said in court that people
have called him a "snitch," which is
a derogatory term for someone who
cooperates with police.
"I figured they knew I knew some-
thing," he said of the police. "I
couldn't hold back."
Bane's brother Joshua Bane, 25,
also testified. He told the jury that
he saw Tyson shoot the .22 at a car
on April 7, 2011, about a week be-
fore the tourist killings.
Authorities say it was initially dif-
ficult to get people in this case to
reveal details about the shootings -
many of the witnesses were friends
of Tyson's.

of record with DOC is his
father's residence at 2915
Orange St., where the re-
cent incidents are alleged
to have happened.

taken no action at that
time because he was afraid

Dear Annie: I have been with "Tony" for
three years. When I started seeing him, I
didn't realize he was still legally married
to a woman who cheated on him. He
promised to divorce, but things remain
the same.
He claims "it's just a piece of paper"
and we are married in our hearts. I've
tried explaining that it feels disrespectful,
but he doesn't get it.
Tony and his wife wanted to avoid
court, so they drew up papers with a
mediator. But each time she sends them,
he finds she has hidden something that
goes against what they agreed, and he
refuses to sign until the papers are fixed.
But Tony always waits for her to make the
next move.
In the past, whenever he pushed for
resolution, she made it difficult for him
to see their children.
It annoys me that Tony doesn't try
harder to end this. Worse, he and his wife
still have a joint checking account. He

ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Although your fertile
imagination will supplyyou
with many brilliant ideas,
unless you implement at
least some of them, they'll'
be of little value. Don't be
all talk and no action.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- A better-than-usual day
in terms of your finances
is not a signal to loosen up
the purse strings.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- As long as you don't al-
low negative inclinations
to weaken your resolve,
you should be able to suc-
cessfully promote a prom-
ising idea. Remain positive
throughout the day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Although conditions for
personal acquisition look
good, you need to be smart
about howyou handle your
newfound wealth.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Social involvements with
friends should prove to be
rather pleasant, as long as
you don't get carried away
and spend more than you
can afford.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
There is nothing wrong
with fulfilling your ambi-
tious aspirations, but only
if you don't do so at the
expense of others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.23) -
In order to get your points
across, yqu should try not
to be coy or circuitous
when explaining them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) If and when your
schemes work out well,
make sure you get some of
the credit.
Dec.21) If a partnership is
to work out well, both you
and your cohort must be
in total agreement, down
to the last detail. When you
are, it will be a slam dunk.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) You have what it
takes to accomplish a lot,
but remember, you still
have your limitations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) In order'to maintain
a smooth relationship with
a valued friend, do not pry
into personal matters he or
she wishes to keep secret.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) When it comes to
something you're tying to
accomplish, much pro-
ductivity can be achieved
through consistency.

keeps saying he'll close it, but he hasn't.
Tony is a known procrastinator, but
I am hurt and frustrated. Enough is
I don't want to throw away what we
have, but I'm beginning to resent him
and his promises. I think the only way he
will open his eyes is if I leave. But I love
him, and our family is happy together.
Am I being unreasonable?

Dear Tired: Tony doesn't want to rock-
the boat and figures you'll stick it out.
But it could take a long time, and his
wife enjoys holding the puppet strings.
(And there is absolutely no excuse to be
sharing a bank account.) Tony needs to
see a lawyer who will establish visitation
rights and make sure the wife sticks to
the agreement.
If he refuses, it is your choice whether
your life is better with him or without

Ross says Dolphins made 'big effort' for Manning

The Assocaited Press

When a couple dozen protesters
showed up outside the Miami
Dolphins complex last week,
team owner Stephen Ross took
So he called two of them, ask-
ing what the team could do
"We all have one thing in com-
mon," Ross said. "We all want to
see a winning football team."
And while speaking at the
NFL owners meetings, on
Monday, Ross said he believes
the Dolphins are getting better,
even after trying in vain to land
quarterback Peyton Manning
earlier this offseason, along with
past coaching candidates such
as Jim Harbaugh and Jeff Fisher,
who both spurned Miami as
Those have been the three
highest-profile known pursuits
Ross has made since taking over
the Dolphins, and he said he
isn't deterred by going 0 for 3.
"I'll do it again and again,"
Ross said. "I'm going to be bold.
You know what you don't lose
for trying. And if I can find the
right guy, I'm going to be bold in
getting him. I can't worry about

"That's history," Ross said. "We

losing. Because nothing ven-
tured is nothing gained."
Ross made a big change late
last season, firing Tony Sparano
and eventually bringing in for-

coordinator Joe Philbin to take
over. Ross raved about Philbin
on Monday, saying he's already

Kickoff rule reduced concussions

The Associated Press

Moving kickoffs up 5 yards
last season did exactly
what the NFL sought, re-
ducing concussions.
"The kickoff rule had an
effect on the game," said
Rich McKay, chairman of
the league's competition
committee. "There was a
40 percent reduction in
concussions on that play."
The league repeatedly
has said the change to
kicking off from the 35-
yard line was done solely
for player safety. McKay
said Monday at the own-
ers meetings it served that
But he admitted surprise
that total kickoff returns
dropped 53 percent.
For all plays, concussions
were down 12.5 percent,
from 218 in 321 games in
2010 to 190 in 320 games
last season. There was no
Hall of Fame game last year
because of the lockout.
Owners will vote this
week to enhance player
safety by outlawing horse-
collar tackles on passers
in the pocket, a proposal
made by the Pittsburgh
Steelers. .
"There was a lot of talk

about quarterback inju-
ries," he said. "We watched
every play where the
quarterback was hurt. We
looked at every rough-
ing-the-passer penalty,
100-plus, and we were
comfortable that the quar-
terback is being protected
Owners will consider ex-
panding protection of de-
fenseless players to those
who are hit by crackback
blocks. The proposal calls
for outlawing contact to
the head area or being
blocked by an opponent
"We saw some hits we
wanted to make sure that
players changed their hit
points on," McKay said.
McKay believes play-
ers and coaches are more
comfortable now about
adopting the postseason
overtime rule requiring a
team losing the coin toss
to get a possession if the
opponent kicks a field goal
on the first series. That rule
was passed in 2010, but has
had no impact on a playoff
game yet.
Originally, the commit-
tee believed it was easier
to get the change adopted
just for playoff games and
the Super Bowl because

"there was a distinction.
In the postseason, you lose
and you go home," McKay
Now, the owners will vote
on Pittsburgh's proposal to
use the same system in the
regular season.
The Steelers would have
benefited years ago from
a change, in the injured
reserve rules being con-
sidered. A player hurt in
preseason or the first week
of the schedule could be
designated to return to
practice after six weeks
and play after eight weeks
rather than sit out the en-
tire season. The idea is to
keep marquee players who
get hurt early available to
return late in the seasbn.
In 1995, Pittsburgh kept
star defensive back Rod
Woodson on the active ros-
ter after a major knee inju-
ry. Woodson came back to
play in a Super Bowl loss to
"Why not give that nar-
row flexibility?" McKay
said. "We sent a survey to
the teams and they wanted
it very much."
Instant replay also could
see two significant chang-
es: booth replay officials
reviewing plays rather than
referees, and all turnovers

Tigers-Marlins ends in a 3-all draw

The Associated Press

Porcello reinforced his bid
to claim the second spot in
the Detroit rotation with
another solid outing on
Just try telling him that,
"I need to do a better job
getting ahead of hitters,"
Porcello said after allowing
one earned run in an exhi-
bition-high seven innings
during a 3-all tie. with the
Miami Marlins. ,
Marlins starter Mark
Buehrle did fine for six in-
nings, and the game was
stopped after the 10th. It
was Detroit's fifth tie this
Porcello allowed one
earned run and five hits.
He walked one and struck
out four. He is the likely No.
2 starter for the Tigers be-
hind AL MVP and CyYoung
winner Justin Verlander.
Buehrle also looked ready
to go. He was 13-9 with a
3.59 ERA for the Chicago
White Sox last season, then
signed with the Marlins as
a free agent.
Buehrle has struggled
to a 7.30 ERA this spring,
but didn't walk anyone
in six innings against the

Guaranteed the Most Comfortable

Pillow You'll Ever Own!

Hi, I'm Michael J. Lindell, Inventor, Manufacturer,
and President of MyPillow, Inc. Years ago, like you, I
found myself extremely frustrated with my pillow going
flat. Most pillows are designed to break down. I would
wake up in the morning with a sore arm, my neck would
hurt, my fingers would be numb, I would toss and
turn all night not knowing why. I tried many different
pillows on the market and none of them worked. So, I
started to research pillows and study sleep disorders. I
was adamant about creating the world's healthiest, most
comfortable, and most durable pillow. MyPillow uses our unique, patented medical
.fill that stays cool, conforms to your exact individual needs regardless of sleep
position, and stays healthy for your full 10-Year Warranty. It is dust mite resistant,
non-allergenic, and you can wash and dry it as easily as your favorite blue jeans.
MyPillow is not available in stores.
I have spent the last seven years selling MyPillow face-to-face at fairs, expos and
events. Hundreds of chiropractors and medical doctors carry and recommend them
for their patients. I have been featured on medical talk shows that air around the
world. I have sold hundreds of thousands of pillows and have received thousands
of testimonials (refer-to mypillow.com) from satisfied customers regarding how
MyPillow has changed their lives and helped relieve their disorders such as:

* Snoring and Sleep Apnea
* Fibromyalgia & TMJ
* Restless Leg Syndrome
* Migraines/Headaches
* Neck & Back Pain
* Asthma/Allergies
* Anxiety & Insomnia

Many people, like me, are in search of the pillow that will help them sleep
comfortably. At night, you may sleep with your arm under your head for support,
flip-flop from side-to-side, flip your pillow over because of overheating, basically
robbing yourself of highly beneficial REM sleep. Even if you are asleep for a full
night, if your vertebrae are not fully supported, you may not be getting any quality,
healing sleep.
I'm so confident MyPillow will help you that I'm offering an unprecedented
60-Day Money-Back Guarantee in addition to the 10-Year Warranty! My customer
service is the best there is. My company is a member of the Better Business Bureau,
and we have an "A+" rating. MyPillow is patented.
U.S. Patent #7461424. We do all of our own manufacturing, and all materials are
100% made in the U.S.A.
I truly believe MyPillow is the best pillow in the world, and that if everyone had
one, they would get better sleep, and the world would be a much better place.
God Bless!

was a trade. He wasn't cut. And
we think we got fair value and
we think the football team is
better for it."
Ross and Ireland both lauded
the "passion" of the smattering
of fans some of whom wear-
ing grocery bags over their heads
- that turned out for the im-
promptu protest last week. Ross
said after talking with them, he
understands their urgency to
win, and hopes they understand
He said the nucleus of the
Dolphins is solid, and acknowl-
edged that there's plenty of work
left to be done.
"Let me tell you; Money will
never be an issue for us becom-
ing a winning football team.
That I can tell you right now,"
Ross said. "We have to live with
the limitations of the cap, the
salary cap, as all teams do. So
sometimes you lose players. But
I think we have a lot of players
expiring and we have to make
sure we don't make stupid mis-
takes by signing players that
have big names and big salary
bonuses that are really going to
impact the cap."
