Traffic stops increase with spring breakers


County recreation director to ask for early opening of Blue Springs


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Jackson County law enforce-
ment is beefing up patrols on
U.S. 231 as spring breakers make
their way through the commu-,
nity en route to Panama City
Beach from points all over the
United States.
Last Sunday, deputies


conducted 112 traffic stops, an
unusually high number. That's
about 10 times more than on a
typical day.
Maj. Donnie Branch of the
Jackson County Sheriff's Office
said two extra patrol officers set
up in the Campbellton and Jacob
areas last Sunday and the Sun-
day before. Next weekend, the
area of special attention could


shift. He reported no arrests for
significant infractions through
the period.
High school and college spring
breaks will continue through
most of April.
Just as traffic on the roadways
is picking up, recreation on Jack-
son County's plentiful array of
parks natural resources is also
gathering momentum.


Spring Creek Park on U.S. 90
in Marianna is getting its share
of spring breakers who want to
tube or canoe down the Chipola
River. And demand for an earlier
opening of Blue Springs Recre-
ation area on Blue Springs Road
is so high that county recreation
officials will ask the county
board, to make it so. Calls are
coming in from locals as well as


many residents of nearby Geor-
gia and Alabama communities.
Parks and Recreation Director
Chuck Hatcher said he's received
more inquiries this year that ever
before.
Typically, the park officially
opens to the general public on
Memorial Day weekend at the
last of May. The park is then
open seven days a week through
Labor Day.

Greenwood


man wins


$10,000 in


lottery
From staff reports
A Greenwood man is $10,000 richer as
the result of playing and matching four
of the five numbers in last Friday night's
multi-state Mega Million lottery'game.
He also picked the right Megaball num-
ber in that set.
Michael K. James, 65, said he will use
the money to pay off bills.
He was one of 48 Georgia lottery
players who won that sum. Winners
in other states also took home a share
of the record-breaking $656 million
jackpot. Amounts varied, depending
on how many numbers they. matched
and whether they picked the right one
as the Megaball. Because Florida is one
of the eight states that don't participate
in the game, James drove to the Super B
Express No. 0002 in Donalsonville, Ga.,
to buy his ticket. The winning numbers
were 2-4-23-38-46, and the Mega Ball
number was 23.
More than half the jackpot went to
winners, about 15 percent went to the
outlets selling the winning tickets, and
the rest goes back to the participat-
ing states to fund education and other
projects.


Man charged

with vehicular

homicide
From staff reports
A Cottondale man has been charged
with vehicular homicide in the death of
an elderly Marianna resident killed in a
crash last October.
According to a Florida Highway Pa-
trol report, Joseph Herman Simmons,
25, was speeding southbound on State
Road 73 when he crested a hill and
then crashed into a vehicle driven by
Johnnie B. Branch.
Branch was making. a left turn from
his driveway to travel north on SR 73

earlier ones that had suc-

Dog Island.

WHTC Foundation awarded Motorola Solutions grant


Special to the Floridan

Washington County high
school students enrolled in the
Pharmacy Technician program
will have a new opportunity to
learn and apply science, technol-
ogy, engineering and math skills
beyond the classroom through
an Innovation Generation grant
from the Motorola Solutions
Foundation, the charitable arm
of Motorola Solutions Inc.
The Motorola Solutions Foun-
dation provided $50,000 to chal-
lenge Florida's local education
foundations to inspire students
through projects designed to
help them solve real-world prob-
lems in STEM areas. The grants
are administered through the


Consortium of Florida Founda-
tion, an organization for Flori-
da's local education foundations,
which seeks to advance students
achievement in Florida by in-
creasing private sector invest-
ment and involvement in public
education.
The WHTC Foundation's
"Clean Room" project was one
of 11 chosen to receive $4,750
through a competitive judging
process by a panel of STEM in-
dustry professionals through
CFEE In an effort to stimulate
more interest in the science and
math careers, both Washing-
ton County high schools began
Pharmacy Technician programs
with the assistance of Washing-
ton-Holmes Technical Center.


The clean room will provide a
work environment like those
found in hospitals, pharmaceu-
tical manufacturing companies,
nuclear pharmacies and scien-
tific research facilities.
"The future of American in-
novation depends on a diverse
pipeline of critical thinkers who
are well versed in STEM princi-
ples," said Matt Blakely, director
of the Motorola Solutions Foun-
dation. "Through the Innova-
tion Generation program, we are
thrilled to partner with program
CFEF and their member educa-
tion foundations in Florida to
provide students and teachers
with the necessary tools to ex-
plore their STEM interest and
purse innovation."

The sheriff's office says
the man shot at deputies
clearing the neighbor's
house but then surren-

fire. No one was injured.
In Dade City, the sheriff's

71-year-old running to


California to raise funds


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Rick Hermelin chal-
lenges himself through
running.
He ran a bit in high
school, but mostly stuck
with weights, bicycles,
laps in the pool, etc. When
he was around 35 years old
he decided to shake up his
routine by running a mile
on his gym's rooftop track.
The results shocked him.
"I was huffing and puff-
ing after a quarter of a
mile," he said.
Instead of sticking to his
previous exercise routine,
Hermelin kept running.
Soon he could run a mile
without "huffing and puff-
ing." Then 5 miles. Then
10 miles. Then, about
35 years later, Hermelin
looked up and he'd run
100 marathons, 100 half-
marathons, and 100 10K
races.
His last half-marathon
was last year, at 70 years
old. That's when he decid-
ed he needed a new goal.
Keeping with his "100"
theme, Hermelin will run
3,000 miles from coast
to coast in 100 days as a
fundraiser for the Injured
Marine Semper Fi Fund.
"It's something I've al-
ways wanted to do," Her-
melin said. "I wanted to
do it for something bigger.
than myself, for a cause."
The nonprofit fund pro-
vides Marines, sailors and
other military members
who support the Marines
who are injured or facing
a life-threatening illness
after 9-11 with financial
assistance and the lifestyle
changes that may occur.
Hermelin, an Aviation
Communications Tech-
nician with the Marine
Corps from 1959-1963,
said the fund works with
the military members to
rehabilitate physically and
mentally.
"The Semper Fi fund is
doing a terrific job help-
ing not only marines, but
also other military men
arid women after 9/11,"
Hermelin said.
His goal is to raise
$10,000 for the fund. As of
press time, Hermelin had
raised $3,071.
To not overload himself,
the 71-year-old Herme-
lin is using a fairly new
device, the ElliptiGO, to
trek from coast to coast. A
*cross between an ellipti-
cal machine and a bicycle,
the ElliptiGO allows users
to run without the nega-
tive effects to the body.
"The motion is like
running," Hermelin ex-
plained. "So in effect I'm
Running coast to coast but
With no impact."


The California resident
began his journey at the
Marine Corps Recruit De-
pot in Parris Island S.C.,
on March 23. He plans to
end his journey at the Ma-
rine Corps Recruit Depot
in San Diego.
Hermelin depends on
the kindness of strang-
ers for his lodging in each
city. He describes himself
as "not shy," simply speak-
ing with people in restau-
rants or stores about his
mission and his need for a
place to stay.
"People are very gener-
ous," Hermelin said. "Peo-
ple want to help if they
can. I expect that to be my
experience for this trip."
Hermelin has stayed
with families and local fire
and EMS departments so
far. Today, he will be stay-
ing in Malone. He is still
looking for a place to stay.
Anyone interested can
email him at rahermelin@
gmail.com.
"I'm a great guest," Her-
melin said. "I leave plac-
es cleaner than I found
them."
The ElliptiGO car-
ries not only Hermelin,
but also all of his things.


Hermelin keeps it light
with a few water bottles,
his notebook computer
and a change of clothing
in his backpack, .making
up about 18 pounds. Tools
and supplies for the El-
liptiGo clip on to the ma-
chine itself.
His day usually starts at
8 a.m. and he covers an
average of 33 miles. Usual-
ly by lunchtime he's at his
destination, and spends
the rest of the day getting
to know the people and
the town.
So far, Hermelin feels
great, no pain, and no
exhaustion.
"I'm doing this, I'm 71
years old, and I would
encourage more people
to be fit, to take care of
themselves so when they
get to my age they can do
something like this with-
out hurting," Hermelin
said.
Keep up with Her-
melin's trip on his blog:

Semper Fi Fund can do

Florida duo face meth charges


From Media General News Service

DOTHAN, Ala. -Two Florida residents
face felony drug charges after Dothan
police arrested them during a theft in
progress call at a local pharmacy.
According to a Dothan police state-
ment, police arrested Steven Peal, 26,
of Alford, Fla., and Susan Meredith, 43,
of Chipley, Fla., and charged them each
with felony manufacturing a controlled
substance and felony unlawful posses-
sion of a controlled substance.
The charges stemmed from a police


response to a theft in progress at the Rite
Aid pharmacy in the 2700 block of West

The police statement said an of-
ficer found a small amount of meth-
amphetamine, lithium batteries and
pseudoephedrine. During the interview
both suspects admitted they came to

Floridan warns of new scam


From staff reports

Several Jackson County Floridan sub-
scribers have reported fraudulent scams
this week. The newspaper would like to
alert the community to be on the look-
out for anyone who makes contact by
telephone or a knock at the door selling
newspaper subscriptions or asking to
renew newspaper subscriptions.
Many of the Jackson County Floridan


contractors who visit residences at the
door to collect payments or to sell news-
paper subscriptions are legitimate.
However, if you are not 100 percent
sure that the person at the door asking
for money is your carrier, follow these
tips: insist on seeing identification, in-
sist on a receipt, and contact the Jackson
County Floridan circulation department
at 850-526-3614 to confirm that the
person is a legitimate contractor.

Grant Simmons, 89, of
Marianna died peacefully
in his sleep on March 31,
2012 in Bonifay. Grant was
born on March 3, 1923 in
Wausau, to Fannie and
Robert Eldon Simmons.
The seventh of eight
siblings, Grant married the
love of his life,Sarah Ross,
in 1946. After graduating
with a Master's degree in
Education from the Uni-
versity of Florida, Grant
went on to become the first
principal at the inaugural
Metcalf Elementary School
in Gainesville, Florida. He
then went on to teach mid-

Hatcher expects to ask Jackson County

or around May 5, instead, at least on
weekends.
"Typically, the calls start coming as
soon as it warms up, and I've been getting
calls since the first of March," Hatcher
said. "We've never had nearly as many
people calling this soon. The weather's

derdale before retiring to
Marianna in 1987. Grant
loved food, loved to eat
and especially loved his
morning routine of meet-
ing with friends at
Hardee's, eating sausage
biscuits and drinking cof-
fee. Marianna proved an
excellent place for another
of Grant's favorite activities
-- fishing. He loved life on
Merritt's Mill Pond, loved
his little fishing boat and
the friends he made in Ma-
rianna. Grant was a some-
what stubborn man (or as
he liked to say, "hardhead-
ed"), but had a very good
sense of humor and those
who knew him would
wholeheartedly agree that
he never met a stranger he
didn't like. Grocery store
shopping was a favorite ac-
tivity for him: he loved to
shop, compare prices and,
of course, visit with his pals
who worked in the various
grocery store sections!
Grant was a veteran of
the United States Navy,
serving his country before
attending college. A char-
ter member of the Gator
Alumni, he was also a
member of the Woodmen
of The World as well as the
Wausau Methodist Church.
He is preceded in death
by his beloved wife Sarah.
He is survived by his lov-
ing son, Al Simmons of
Bonifay, beloved grand-
daughter, Lisa Simmons
and greatgrandson, Levon
Moses Midwood, both of
Austin, Texas.
Grant Simmons was a
fineman. May God bless
him and keep him.
Funeral services will be

Burger King coming up with new menu


The Associated Press

MIAMI When Burger King set about
to fix its ailing empire, the fast food giant
started by scrutinizing everything on the
menu even the mayonnaise.
A group of Burger King executives and
franchisees last year sat through a lengthy
presentation complete with charts and
graphs on how oils and eggs affect the
quality of the spread. A blind taste test of
30 varieties followed. The verdict: They
liked the one Burger King was already
using.
"That was actually a pretty hard day,"
recalls John Koch, Burger King's executive
chef.
It wasn't the only one. Over the past
year, Burger King evaluated all of its in-

Martin family ask for




probe of prosecutor


The Associated Press

ORLANDO Trayvon
Martin's parents asked
federal officials investigat-
ing the teenager's shoot-
ing death to look further
into the prosecutor who
stepped down from the
case and his role in de-
ciding whether to press

Tracy Martin and Syb-

Attorney Norm Wolfinger
met with the Sanford po-

the teen's death and that
together they overruled
a detective's recommen-

George Zimmerman, be


charged with manslaugh-

The prosecutor, Norm
Wolfinger, called the alle-
gations "lies" and said no
meeting took place.
"I'm outraged by the out-
right lies contained in the
letter," Wolfinger said in a
statement. "I encourage
the Justice Department
to investigate and docu-
ment that no such meet-
ing or communication
occurred."
Wolfinger recused him-
self from the case two
weeks ago and a special
prosecutor from Jackson-

WEST PALM BEACH
A civil lawsuit in the
case of a South Florida
polo mogul convicted
of drunken-driving
manslaughter has been
dismissed.
Rumors have swirled of
a settlement in the civil
case against John Good-

guilty last month in a
criminal case. Though
attorneys haven't con-
firmed a settlement, The
Palm Beach Post reported
Monday the civil suit has
been dismissed, a likely

reached.
The civil suit was

Indians try to turn it around vs. Pirates


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Chipola Indians will try to get
back on the winning track Wednes-
day when they travel to Pensacola
for the first of a three-game series
with the Pensacola State Pirates.
Chipola (25-15 overall, 5-4 in the
Panhandle Conference) comes into
the game on a two-game losing
streak after dropping back to back
games to Tallahassee 8-2 and 4-1
last week to lose the series 2-1.
It was the first series the Indians
have lost in conference play this
season, which dropped them to sec-
ond place in the league behind 7-4
Northwest Florida State.
"I was disappointed with the way
we finished up that series," Chipola
coach Jeff Johnson said Monday.
"It was the last game going into the
break, and I think maybe we went
on spring break a hair early.

@JCFSports

"We've got to get ready to go this
week. We're right in the middle of the
pack with everybody else, now we
have to play well. We put ourselves
in a good position, but we didn't take
advantage of the opportunity."
The Panhandle standings are a
jumbled mess at the moment, with
four of the five teams all having four
losses, with last-placed Pensacola
State with five.
Despite last week's struggles, the
Indians are still in prime position


to make a run at the league title,
so long as they're able to recapture
the form they found during a three-
game winning streak that put them
at 5-2 through the Panhandle's first
seven games.
Johnson said he hopes the break
will help in his team's efforts to re-
group, but the coach said his play-
ers must display more resolve the
rest of the way than they have to this
point.
"We've got to get mentally tough-
er. That's the concern right now," he
said. "I think we're a little soft right
now. We have to learn how to play
the game the right way on a daily ba-
sis, and not just when the weather's
good and we feel good.
"Baseball is a game that will hum-
ble you if you don't take pride in
what you're doing and do the little

Almost home

Chipola sets sights on Panhandle title DSN K.No
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com "We've made it to state, which
is what we wanted. The next


With a state tournament berth
already wrapped up, the Chipola
Lady Indians can now turn their
attention to the next target: a
Panhandle Conference title.
They can do just that by sweep-
ing a doubleheader with North-
west Florida State on Thursday
at home, but only if Tallahassee
doesn't sweep its home double-
header against Gulf Coast State
on the same day.
However, Lady Indians coach
Belinda Hendrix said she and
her team aren't getting ahead
of themselves this year, a lesson
learned from last year's cam-
paign when they dominated
throughout the regular season
before going 0-2 in the state
tournament.
"We've reached our first goal,
which was just to make it to
state. Last year, the goal was to
win it all, and you see where that
got us," the coach said. "We've
scaled it back and we're taking
it one goal at a time, instead of
overlooking each step. We're
concentrating on each one.
We've made it to state, which is
what we wanted. The next goal is
to be the No. 1 seed. We hold our
own destiny in our hands."
Chipola (9-1) is comfortably
in first place in the Panhandle
standings, up three games over
second place Tallahassee (6-4).
The Lady Indians have now
won eight games in a row.
"I'm very excited about the
way the girls are playing. They're

playing beyond my expecta-
tions," Hendrix said. "We want
to keep playing well and keep
that confidence going. We defi-
nitely want to go in (to the state.
tournament) with some kind of
confidence, especially with how
young we are.
"We've reached one of our
goals, so we can relax a little bit.
But it's important to win, and
that's what we'll try to do."
Chipola has just four sopho-
mores on the roster, but the Lady
Indians' freshmen have provided
a major impact all season.
Freshman right fielder Mya
Anderson leads the team with
11 home runs and a .789 slug-
ging percentage, and freshman
pitchers Eva Voortman, Michele
Hester, and Eron Milton make
up three-fourths of the Chipola
pitching staff.
The Netherlands native Voort-
man has been especially domi-
nant this season, posting a 22-1
record with a team best 1.05
Earned Run Average in 133 2/3
innings.
Voortman has surrendered just
three earned runs in her last 22
2/3 innings pitched.

Hendrix said that her
ascendance as an ace, as
well as the emergence of
freshman Eron Milton as a
reliable starter and sopho-
more Lindsey Hamlin as
a force out of the bullpen,
has played a huge role in
the team's success.
"I think Eva is finding her
confidence. In the begin-
ning, she didn't.have a lot
of confidence," the coach
said. "In The Netherlands,
she was the only pitcher
on her team, so there was a
lot of pressure on her. Over
here, she has other people
to rely on when she strug-
gles. But she's finding that
self-confidence in knowing
that she's pretty good and
she can dominate."
Hester has been out of
late with a shoulder injury,
but returned to practice
Monday, though Hendrix
said she was doubtful to
play Thursday. The Lady
Indians' pitching staff will
need to be at their best
Thursday against a Lady
Raiders lineup that posted
15 runs total in the teams'
first two match-ups this
year, both Chipola wins.
In the March 21 double-
header, Northwest put six
earned runs on Voortman
in a 13-6 Chipola win, and
scored nine runs on 10 hits
in the second game, draw-
ing nine walks in a 10-9
Lady Indians victory.
"They just hit," Hendrix
said of the Lady Raiders.
"They've got speed at the
top and some power in the
middle of the lineup. They
just have some very good
hitters, so we have to be on
top of our game. We've just
got to out-hit them.
"I'm sure they'll want
some redemption from
last time. I know they'll be
pretty fired up."
The first game will be at 4
p.m., with the second set to
start at 6 p.m.

Bullpups ready to chase


another conference title


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent
The Marianna Middle School
Bullpups baseball team will take the
field Thursday at 2 p.m. in a quest for
their fourth conference title in as many
attempts.
Since its inception in the 2008-09
school year, the Bullpups' baseball team
has been dominant on the field, and
third year coach Hunter Nolen said he is
hopeful this year will be no exception.
The Bullpups enter conference play as
the No. 1 seed despite losing two confer-
ence games in the regular season.
With that distinction, they have a bye
for the first round of conference play
scheduled to start in Grand Ridge on
Tuesday,
With seven teams in the conference,
six advance to the playoffs. >
Graceville was eliminated from post-
season play.

Bonifay will play, with the winner to face
MMS on Thursday.
Following the early games Thursday,
the winners of both games will advance
to the championship game at 6 p.m.
Nolen said he is confident his team
can bring home another championship.
"I'm pleased that we are the No. 1
seed. This is our fourth year of having a
baseball team at MMS and by far this is
the toughest conference we have had,"
he said. "No one is undefeated, which
speaks to the quality of play we are up
against. This is just a really solid confer-
ence top to bottom."
About his plans for pitching with hav-
ing games back to back, Nolen said, "We
really would like to save our No. 1 for the
championship game. That's Maxx Har-
rell, who's done nothing but get better
and stronger. After Maxx, I have Quaidd
Van Huss and Austin Torbett.
"Austin has done a great job coming
in as a reliever. He hits his spots and is
able to change speeds, which keeps the
teams guessing. Maxx and Quaidd can
hit their spots, too, so I think we're in
good shape."

Johnson said Pensacola
will present a formidable
challenge to his team
despite the fact that the
Pirates have struggled
most of the conference
season.
"They had the injury
bug hit them a little bit,
so they're fighting through
that as well," he said. "But


they're a quality club with
good arms. But we've got
to get back to worrying
about ourselves and doing
the things that make us

That's the one thing I don't
think has come across

important to us as it needs
to be. I hope we can figure
that out and get this thing
rolling again."

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

a schedule, all, it would
do is cut down on your
proficiency.

cially with someone of
whom you're not too fond.

to put a stop to an outside
influence that could un-
dermine the tranquility of
your space.

spoiling for a fight. If you
find yourself on a collision
course with a very strongly
opinionated person, walk
away as fast as you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Thoroughly check out
an expensive, purport-
edlj long-lasting article to'

cial someone have short
fuses;, make sure you keep

Annie's Mailbox


DearAnnie: Iwant to share apersonalsto-
ry that I decided to be very public about:
I'm a recovering alcoholic. The irony of
my situation is that I made a successful
career out of writing about using alcohol
to cope with the stresses of parenthood in
books and in myWeb column.
Then one morning I woke up with the
hangover from hell (I actually ended up in
the emergency room), and that was liter-
ally the turning point: I got the message
loud and clear that my life was a mess,
and alcohol was making it that way. I re-
member when I "'fessed up" to the read-
ers of my blog, "Baby on Bored." I was
terrified that they'd think I was this enor-
mous hypocrite. Instead, I got countless
responses from women thanking me.
April 5, 2012, is National Alcohol Screen-
ing Day. Thousands of colleges, commu-
nity-based organizations and military
installations participate. One element of
the day that people should know about
is the free and anonvniotls screenings
available online. The screenings help in-
dividuals assess whether they should visit
a clinician or take a similar course of ac-
tion to get a handle on their drinking. The
screenings can- be accessed at howdoy
ouscore.org.
STEFANIE WILDER-TAYLOR




How would you play in four hearts after V
leads the spade queen? The bidding was 1
derline. Opposite North's game-invitatik
limit raise, you had a minimum opening
with seven losers (two spades, one heart,
diamonds and two clubs)..This suggested
you should have passed out three hearts,
that would have ruined the story.
You start with four losers: one in each suit.
must do something about that spade loser.
An immediate trump play is fatal if East
turns a spade. You must organize a discard
your spade loser.
At trick two, you should attack clubs. Bi
crafty West will duck the first round, take
second, and lead another spade. You had b
ter win this trick in your hand, so that
can cash the third club and pitch dumr
remaining spade.
Did you win the first trick on the board,
training your spade ace as the later entry to
club winner? Did you then lead the club k
to avoid blocking the suit?


Dear Stefanie Wilder-Taylor: Thank you
for sharing your story and underscor-
ing the importance of screening for
alcoholism.

Dear Annie: My daughter is getting mar-
ried this summer, and my husband and
I are upset about the informality of the
groomsmen's attire. They are planning to
wear only tuxedo pants, shirts and vests.
No tie, no jacket.
This is going to be a formal church wed-
ding, and I have spent a lot of money on
my daughter's dress. My husband feels
this shows a lack of respect for my daugh-
ter. What is the best way to handle this
without issuing an ultimatum?
BRIDE'S PARENTS

Dear Parents: If you are not footing the
bill, you don't have much say. Not to men-
tion, this could be a way for the grooms-
men to save money If you are paying for
everything, you should ask your daughter
how she feels about it, and let her talk to
her fiance. Otherwise, please stay out of
it. What the groomsmen wear is of little
importance to the rest of the day and
once they start dancing, the jackets and
ties come off anyway. Creating ill-will,
however, will last a very long time.

Miami -": -


Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (left) and forward LeBron James watch from the bench in the last minutes of the fourth quarter
against the Boston Celtics in their game in Boston on Sunday.


Heat hope a return home fixes what ails them


The Associated Press

MIAMI -When Monday's film ses-
sion and court work were completed
on the Heat practice floor, LeBron
James and Dwyane Wade huddled
with coach Erik Spoelstra and assis-
tant David Fizdale for a chat.
Everyone took a turn talking, every-
one took a turn nodding.
"We'd be lying to ourselves," Wade
said afterward, "if we said we were
playing our best basketball right
now."
Even if they did say that, no one
would believe them. Not after seven
losses in their last 10 road games, the
last three of those defeats all by at
least 15 points, capped by rock-bot-
tom for this season so far, a 19-point
loss at Boston on Sunday where Mi-
ami set season-lows for points, field-
goal percentage, free throws made
and free-throw percentage.
The Heat have won 15 straight at
home, the NBA's longest such streak
this season, and start a five-game
homestand on Tuesday against Phil-
adelphia. Oklahoma City which
embarrassed the Heat last week -
comes in on Wednesday, followed by
games with Memphis on Friday, De-
troit on Sunday and then the Celtics
again next Tuesday.
If there's a time for the Heat to get
rolling again, it might be now.


"It's not about talk. It's not about
whatever the perceptions are out
there," Spoelstra said Monday. "We're
not a perfect team, like a lot of teams
out there. Yesterday was unaccept-
able and today we worked as a group
to fix it and to make it better."
Spoelstra used that same word -
unacceptable after Sunday's loss.
By then, his mind was made up
that even with another hectic week
ahead, the Heat couldn't afford to use
Monday as an off day. There's simply
too much for them to address.
"It's not like we're hitting the panic
button," James said. "He's saying it's
unacceptable and we've got to own
up to it. We've got a veteran ballclub
and we know we can't play that way,
offensively or defensively."
Miami entered Monday 3-1/2
games behind Chicago in the race for
the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Confer-
ence. The Bulls and Heat play twice
more before the playoffs begin, and
Miami is two games behind Chi-
cago in the loss column. Oklahoma
City came into Monday 2-1/2 games
ahead of Miami in the race for the
best overall record, with San Antonio
just a half-game behind the Heat.
With 15 games left in the regular
season, Miami still insists there's more
than enough time to get thingslback
on track. And in James' mind, that's
more vital than anything related to


how the playoff brackets shake out.
"Right now it's not even about seed-
ing for us," James said. "We have to
play better."
Like every coach, Spoelstra preach-
es about consistency.
Pleading for it might be the bet-
ter description these days. In the
past month, the Heat averaged 92.9
points on the road, shooting just un-
der 45 percent. At home, those num-
bers rise to 97.7 points on nearly 49
percent shooting.
The most glaring difference is the
one Spoelstra probably ranks as the
most important in Miami, the
Heat allowed 86 points per game in
.the past month, a far cry from the
95.1 they yielded away from home.
"We're much better than that,"
Spoelstra said. "We're a tale of two
teams sometimes and we're going to
work and change that."
It would take an unforeseeable col-
lapse for Miami to finish any worse
than No. 2 in the East, though James
and Chris Bosh both said that the
memories of being able to win a
conference-final series against Chi-
cago last year without the benefit of
home-court advantage mean noth-
ing to the Heat now.
"We just have to get back to our
spacing, get back to our spots on the
floor," Bosh said. "We're focused and
we know what we're doing."
