Officers snoot, Kill robbery suspect


BY LAUREN DELGADO

Law enforcement officers shot and
killed an armed robbery suspect on Tues-
day after police say he made aggressive
moves toward his handgun.
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts said
the identity of the man is unknown at this
time. The victim had just used the CVS
pharmacy drive-thru and parked to check
her purchases. Roberts said a man, who
the victim described as Hispanic, came
up to her window and demanded she give
him money, showing her a handgun. The
victim told him she had no money so he
grabbed her phone and left, Roberts said.
The victim is scared and upset but was
not physically harmed, Roberts said.
JCSO deputies arrived on the scene
around 11:30 a.m. Witnesses gave officers
a description of the man and indicated


the direction he headed toward. The wit-
nesses described him as in his late 20s or
early 30s. Roberts said he was between 5-
feet-8 and 5-feet-10 and stocky.
"We appreciate those citizens," Roberts
said of the witnesses.
More JCSO deputies were called in as
well as the K-9 units of the Jackson Cor-
rectional Institution and the Apalachee
Correctional Institution. School resource
officers joined the hunt as school was out
for the clay.
"That contributed to the quick resolu-
tion of the incident," Roberts said.
Officers tracked the man for almost
three hours, during which he had plenty
of opportunities to surrender, Roberts
said. Officers cornered him in the woods
behind Road-Mart on U.S. 90. The man
came out of the woods aggressively,

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office set up a mobile unit for officers and officials from the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the State Attorney's Office, and the Medical Examiner's
Office near the woods where an armed robbery suspect was fatally shot on Tuesday.

Gas prices


rise as Isaac


shuts down


platforms
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Hurricane Isaac has delayed oil pro-
duction in the Gulf of Mexico, con-
tributing to a rise in gas prices for
Jackson County as well as Flbrida and
neighboring states.
According to a press release from
the AAA, oil platforms began shutting
down on Friday. These precautions
caused a loss of 2 to 3 billion barrels in
Gulf oil production.
In Jackson County, gas prices rose
from an average of $3.56 a gallon on
Aug. 21 to $3.65 on Monday. The lo-
cal prices are still lower than Florida's
average gas price of $3.76, which also
rose about 10 cents in a week. The na-
tional average rose about three cents
this week to $3.77.
In Georgia, gas prices rose about 14
cents to $3.80 in a week. In Alabama,
gas prices rose about 9 cents to $3.61
in a week.
As of this article's publication, Isaac
was forecast to be a Category 1 hur-
ricane as it entered Louisiana before
weakening as it moved toward Arkan-
sas. When and if gas prices lower de-
pends on Isaac's longevity .and path
and how quickly oil production could
begin.

Chamber hosts


legislative update


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Two representatives of
the statewide Chamber
of Commerce brought
legislative and politi-
cal updates to the Jack-
son County Chamber on
Tuesday, speaking at the
local Chamber's annual
legislative luncheon.
The Florida Chamber's
Executive Vice President
of Political Operations,
David Hart, focused on
the Chamber's push to see
some of the organization's
initiatives passed by leg-
islators and approved by
Gov. Rick Scott.
The state Chamber's


Vice President of Politi-
cal Strategy, Marian John-
son, talked about the po-
litical climate and what it
could mean for Chamber
initiatives going forward.
Both had good news.
Hart said Gov. Scott
signed off on all 22 Cham-
ber initiatives that legisla-
tors had approved. He fo-
cused his talk on three of
those.
The Chamber had sup-
ported a tax credit for man-
ufacturers, a break tied to
business expansions that
could mean more jobs.
The Chamber had also
pushed legislators to

Avoidance of



tough choices



is bipartisan
Looming in the background of this presidential
election is a host of tough budget choices that
nobody wants to make.
It's called the fiscal cliff or more loudly Taxmageddon.
Shortly after the first of the year, here is what will be
facing our elected officials in Washington:
)) A blunt reduction in spending of $1.2 billion. It's an
ax because all the scalpels have been thrown away.
) Payroll tax cuts expire, which will have an
immediate impact on the bottom line for taxpayers.
) A sharp reduction in Medicare physician payments,
which would only encourage physicians to avoid
Medicare patients.
An immediate increase in taxes for middle-income
earners because the Alternative Minimum Tax would
kick in.
) The need to raise the country's debt ceiling. Recall
that last summer the hijinks involved in that were an
embarrassment.
What would happen? Probably a double-dip
recession.
There are several reasonable and thoughtful alterna-
tives that could be called "reform."
"Gradually phasing in well thought-out entitlement
and tax reforms would be far preferable to large, blunt
and abrupt savings upfront," wrote the Committee for a
Responsible Federal Budget."
The committee says that reforms ought to be,"strate-
gic" and "calculated" when instead there is nothing but
political avoidance.
If the trend continues, today's debt of 70 percent of
gross domestic product will rise to more than 85 per-
cent by 2022 and to 130 percent by 2035. *
Under the scenario, government spending will press
out private funding as well as investments in the future
like roads, bridges and research.
Raiding college professors
A total of 58 professors in the college of arts and
sciences at Florida State University were offered jobs
elsewhere, and all but eight left.
They took salaries averaging $20,000 more. The
danger, FSU President Eric Barron said, is that FSU is
turning into a "farm team" for other universities..
) The weight on soldiers
The typical soldier or Marine is carrying about 100
pounds, about twice the weight carried by soldiers in
World War II. Most of the extra weight is composed of
electronic gear and 16 pounds of batteries. There is an-
other good reason to develop better batteries, not just
for the military but for civilian uses, too.
Title IX
Athletics have received the most attention for Title IX
now 40 years old.
But the landmark civil rights law included other areas,
too, such as the legal rights of pregnant teens and pro-
tections against sexual harassment and providing equal
opportunities in all areas of education. These are areas
that still need work, reports Education Week.
- Meanwhile, look at how women have entered the
professions.
More than half those graduating from college each
year are women.
The percentage of law degrees earned by women
increased from 7 percent in 1972 to 47 percent in 2011.
) Conservation is patriotic
More than four in five Americans say conserving
our air, water and land is patriotic, reports the Nature
Conservancy.
More than three-quarters of Americans say one of the
things government does best is protecting our national
parks and historic lands.
And 83 percent would be willing to pay more in taxes
to support our natural wonders.
) FCAT on the way out
For those complaining that one high-stakes test the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test has too
much influence in Florida, just wait a few years.
The FCAT will soon be replaced by end-of-course ex-
ams that are designed to have more national credibility.
The idea that students must pass tests in class is not
revolutionary.
The FCAT was just one step on the road to account-
ability. Flawed to be sure but a necessary step.
The Mormon positives
Talk about Mormons in this presidential campaign,
and the implications have been mostly negative.
But the Economist notes that the faith does not
get enough credit for its positive connections with
business.
Though Mormons represent only 2 percent of Ameri-
cans, the Economist notes, the religion's emphasis on
clean living and self-reliance are business friendly.
Since so many Mormons serve missions overseas,
their facility with foreign language makes them top
candidates for foreign service.
Science fiction becomes fact
By 2029 computers will have the same intellectual
power as a human brain, reports tech inventor Ray
Kurzweil in The Wall Street Journal.
How can you tell?
) What's going on in Afghanistan?
Individuals thought to be friendly are killing
American soldiers at a high rate.


These are Afghan police, soldiers or civilians at
military installations, The Los Angeles Times writes.
And though the vast majority of the 500,000 Afghans
are loyal allies, the number of these attacks is forcing
Americans to be wary at all times.
One Afghan police officer invited a group of Marines
to a Ramadan dinner and then killed three and
wounded a fourth.
Most fighting will be handed off to Afghanistan forces
by 2014. It can't come soon enough.

Tea party missing





from RNC s big tent


BY HENRY KELLEY
Florida Voices

've been asked why
there is no grass roots
representation of the
tea party at the Republi-
can National Convention.
My response is fairly
simple. Despite three
years of media onslaught
and cluelessness by
liberals and Democrats)
those outside the move-
ment still don't grasp a
simple truth: people like
me are the absolute last
folks probably even
below gaffe-a-minute
Vice President Joe Biden
- who would be invited
to the RNC.
We in the tea party
believe in Republican
principles of limited
government, free(er) mar-
kets and limited foreign
military adventures. It's
elected Republicans who
represent the problem
- they just don't follow
their own principles.
We watched in dis-
belief as a Republican-
controlled government
passed the Patriot Act
and Medicare Part D,
growing government and
racking up even more
debt. Our response? We
stayed home in 2006 and
the Democrats took'con-
trol of the U.S.* House.
In 2008 we had two
choices for president. One
spoke very well, wanted
to greatly increase the
size of government, and
supported TARP the
Troubled Asset Relief Pro-
gram that purchased the
failed assets of banks. One
spoke less well, wanted
to greatly increase the
size of government and
also supported TARP. The
result was total Democrat
control of the federal
government, because we


decided silently that the
Republicans had blown it.
We gave the Democrats
a chance to, as Nancy
Pelosi said, "drain the
swamp." The door was
wide open. But it turns
out the only ones worse
in handling our economic
crisis than the Republi-
cans was the Democrats.
As a result, we have
given the government
complete control over
our health care, and.thus
our bodies, regardless of
whether that body is male
or female. I challenge
anyone on the left, who
had legitimate complaints
about the policies of
President George W. Bush,
to offer a rational defense
for voting for President
Obama a second time.
Obama's policies are
almost universally, expan-
sions of President Bush's
policies.
Not only did the swamp
not get drained, it got
filled with huge amounts
of cash to special interest
groups, even more debt
and, worst of all, a sense
of hopelessness in our
form of government.
So the tea party went
out and did, without
violence, what needed
to be done. We found
candidates and supported
them to vote our way. The
result was the absolute
smack down of Demo-
crats in 2010. Fortunately,
the "intellectual superior-
ity" of the left prevented
them from realizing the
mood of the nation, an
attitude that has put Re-
publicans in a position to
sweep back to power now.
Yet, the Republican
party has shown no
interest in following their
principles, even with the
nation in serious peril.
The tea party was


formed because there
was a group awareness
that our nation is on the
precipice of the famed
economic cliff.
Since Democrats have
made no effort to reach
out, understand or even
acknowledge that the tea
party has an economic
point, we are stuck with
Republicans for one more
cycle because we simply
cannot leave our govern-
ment in the hands of
President Obamabush.
He's proven to be a failure
as a leader, and we will
swap him out for some-
one we don't quite trust,
either.
You see, the tea party
long ago realized that We
the People had to rise
up and transcend our
government and parties,
or the nation will never be
the same.


After this election, the
future of the tea party is
unclear. We may finally
break off and work to be
truly independent. Many
members may join a third
party. What is certain'
is that the Republicans
have pushed us away as
much as the Democrats,
and we'll work together to
elect a guy we don't fully
trust.
And therein oddly, lies a
glimmer of hope. We may
elect someone who no
one quite believes in and
we will look to ourselves
for solutions, not D.C.
And that, my friends on
the right and left, is what
makes America great. We
are a nation of individu-
als, and we need to find
that strength again.
Henry Kelley, a Fort Walton Beach
business owner, is a leader of the
Florida tea party movement.


Letters to the Editor


Commending woman for killing gator


I read your article on the front
page of the Friday, Aug. 3, 2012,
Floridan.
A woman killed an alligator
which was coming near her, and it
was about one foot from her. She
happened to have a 2x4 to fend off
snakes, if needed.
She should be commended for
having presence of mind and
keeping calm in an emergency. She
killed the alligator and may have
saved her arm, leg or her life.
The woman was so much more
fortunate than the young man
down state who lost an arm to one


of these wild creatures a few days
before this article was written.
I once knew an 80-year-old lady
who was cutting hedge in her yard,
and she was bitten by a snake.
She cut off the snake's head with
her shears and called a neighbor.
With the head boxed in their hands
the snake was found to be a cop-
perhead. The pain was the worst
she had ever experienced is what
she told family and friends from
her hospital room.
Unlike the wild creatures, hu-
mans can reason and think things
through. I believe this woman


handled her situation bravely.
MARGARET SCHEFFER
Marianna
Thoughts on the Russ House
I believe the Russ House should
be saved, but the TDC is not in the
historical preservation business. A
well managed chamber of com-
merce should be able to handle
this. I urge the county commission
to not buy this house and hope res-
idents will call their commissioner
and ask him to vote against it.

Human organs found in storage locker


The Associated Press
PENSACOLA A for-
mer medical examiner
crudely preserved human
brains, hearts and lungs in
soda cups and plastic food
containers found inside
a storage unit in Florida,
authorities said Tuesday.
A man bought the con-
tents of a storage unit at
auction last week in Pen-
sacola and made the grue-
some discovery after being
overpowered by a strange
smell while sifting through
furniture and boxes.
Investigators found
formaldehyde, a chemical
used to embalm and pre-
Sserve bodies, leaking from
a 32-ounce drink cup with
a cracked lid that was hold-
ing a heart, said Jeff Martin,
director of the District 1
Medical Examiner's Office
in Pensacola. The unit had
been rented previously by


Dr. Michael Berkland.
"How horrible it is for the
families of these deceased
to think that someone's
loved one's organs are ba-
sically rotting away in a
storage unit somewhere,
it's horrible," Martin told
The Associated Press.
Berkland worked at the
medical examiner's office
from 1997 until 2003, when
he was fired for not com-
pleting autopsy reports.
Officials said he was also
performing private au-
topsies in the area, but it's
unclear if any of the organs,
were from autopsies he
conducted while working
at the medical examiner's
office. The medical exam-
iner's office is now cross-
referencing names in their
database during that time
period, Martin said.
Officials are also trying
to locate family members
for some of the victims,


but many of the organs
are not labeled, making
it nearly impossible to
identify them.
No charges have been
filed against Berkland.
His attorney Eric Steven-
son declined comment
Tuesday.
Officials are trying to
determine whether Berk-
land broke any laws
regarding biomedical
waste and the storing
and disposing of human
remains.
It was not immediately
known why the organs
were being stored there.
Martin said it's unlikely
they could have been sold
anywhere because they
were not well-preserved.
Berkland told employ-
ees of the Florida storage
facility that he planned to
keep household goods and
office furniture there, the
company said.

THEASSOCIATED PRESS
Supporters cheer as the displays of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney appear
on the stage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday.


Republicans nominate


Romney, lambaste Obama


The Associated Press

TAMPA Former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney swept to the Republican
presidential nomination Tuesday night
at a storm-delayed national convention,
every mention of his name cheered by
delegates eager to propel him into a
campaign to defeat President Barack
Obama in tough economic times.
Romney watched on television with
his wife, Ann, at a hotel suite across the
street from the convention hall as the
convention sealed his hard-won victo-
ries in the primaries and caucuses of
last winter.
New Jersey put him over the top in a
ritual roll call of the.states.
A parade of convention speakers
mocked Democratic President Obama
mercilessly, as if to make-up for lost time
at an event postponed once and dogged
still by Hurricane Isaac.
The Democratic president has "never
run a company. He hasn't even run a
garage sale or seen the inside of a lem-
onade stand," declared Reince Priebus,
chairman of the Republican Party.

restore transportation improvement
dollars that had, in years past, been
"raided" to balance the budget, he said.
The transportation money,- the Cham-
ber says, is an important building block
in trying to improve the economy. Mak-
ing the infrastructure stronger can draw
more businesses and the jobs they cre-
ate, he explained. Legislators restored
transportation trust funds that will be
dedicated to the Florida Department
of Transportation's ongoing five-year
plan.
Hart touched on the Chamber's hope
of more success to come, in part be-
cause it has a supporter in the incoming
Speaker of the House, Will Weatherford.
He said Weatherford has already been
an instrumental advocate.
Hart said the Chamber will continue
to work on issues that it did not see suc-
cess with this year; things like achieving
hurricane insurance reform, reduc-
ing workers compensation rates and
improving the legal climate in the state.
He also said the Chamber is focused
on building up "Six Pillars" upon which
society and business depends: talent
and education, innovation, growth and
leadership, competitive ability, respon-
sive civic and governmental systems,
and a good quality of life. In education,
for example, the Chamber supports ef-
forts to make sure that state universi-
ties and colleges are offering the kinds
of programs that can link its graduates
to the high-wage jobs that are emerging
for their generation.
Johnson, a long-time political observ-
er and advisor for the Chamber, brought
the crowd up to date on the political sea-
son now underway nationally and state-
wide. Her numbers indicate the Cham-
ber will see a majority of supporters on
board in the next legislative session, but
she said Chamber members should not
only pick their candidates, but work for
them to succeed. She also said that an
emerging political trend could be a key
to success in the future. Of the 273,000
new voters going on the rolls last year in
Florida, she said, 125,000 registered as
Republicans, 18,000 as Democrats and
129,000 either registered as a minor par-
ty member or as having no party affilia-
tion. Only three percent of the 129,000
registered with a minor party.
Years ago, those voters would repre-
sent a much smaller fraction of the vot-
ing public, but Johnson said their num-
bers are growing and they must be taken
into account and reached as the Cham-
ber seeks to help candidates friendly to
the organization's causes.
Johnson said legislator Marti Coley fits
that description. The Chamber "grades"


Paul Ryan into the fall campaign, the
convention quickly approved a con-
servative platform that calls for tax
cuts not government spending
- to stimulate the economy at a time
of sluggish growth and 8.3 percent
unemployment.
Ann Romney's speech was sched-
uled as a prime-time highlight, an
appearance meant to cast her multi-
millionaire-businessman-turned-poli-
tician husband in a soft and likable light
before a national TV audience.
"Tonight I want to talk to you from my
heart about our hearts," she said in ex-
cerpts of her speech released in advance
by her husband's campaign.
"I want to talk not about what divides
us but what holds Us together as an
American family. I want to talk to you
tonight about that one great thing that
unites us, that one thing that brings us
our greatest joy when times are good,
and the deepest solace in our dark
hours.
"Tonight, I want to talk to you about
love."
Aides said Romney would be in the
hall when she spoke.


all legislators based on their perfor-
mance in office as it relates to issues of
interest to the organization; Coley got
an "A," Johnson said, and in fact scored
"100" with the Chamber.
She encouraged the Chamber mem-
bers present to support those who sup-
port the Chamber as the political season
continues.
Johnson, who studies and conducts
polls, among other measures of voter
sentiment, said the people who elect
lawmakers continue to show concern
for issues the Chamber is focused on.
The economy is first on their list, she
said, followed by education, prop-
erty insurance, property taxes, health
care, achieving a balanced budget and
immigration issues.
Johnson and Hart brought one more
Chamber representative with them.
Although he didn't speak from the po-
dium, Marianna native Lance Pierce
was there to mingle with the crowd
after the meeting. Pierce is the state
Chamber's Grassroots Development
Manager. He communicates with local
Chamber organizations, seeking their
input on session issues' and campaign
matters of interest to the organization.
He also works to build support during
legislative sessions and in follow-up af-
terward. He has a big job ahead of him
as the November election approaches.
He will be responsible for helping build
support among voters for two of the
constitutional amendments that will be
on the November ballot. The Chamber
supports amendment No. 4, which in-
volves property tax reform. It has three
main elements: it would give first-time
home-buyers a tax break for the first
five years of ownership, it would pro-
hibit taxing authorities from raising a
property owners tax if its value is down
and would place a five-percent cap on
the tax increase that could imposed
from year-to-year on non-homestead
property, such as commercial holdings.
Currently, the cap is at 10 percent.
The Chamber also supports amend-
ment No. 10, which would give busi-
nesses an extra $25,000 exemption on
their tangible personal property, such
as equipment and other objects essen-
tial to their operations. This legislation
would double the existing exemption of
$25,000. Hart said this could mean that
roughly 155,000 small businesses would
be completely relieved of that tax.
Lance Pierce will be heavily involved
in building support among voters for
these two amendments. The son of Troy
University head baseball coach Bobby
Pierce, he spent the first five years of
his life in Jackson County but then he,
his mother Kay and his father moved
to Alabama, where they now live. They
still have family in Jackson County, and
Pierce said he visits here often.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN wwwjcfloridan.com


Get on board: Day trip deadline nears


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@icfloridan.com

Tour operators who want to
run vacationers from the coast
into Jackson and Washington
counties for inland day trips
have until Friday at 2 p.m. to
submit a plan if they want to be
considered.
Tourist Development Councils
for the two counties joined forc-
es in seeking proposals for the
service, running advertisements
and public service announce-
ments in several newspapers, on
television and online.
They assembled a list of po-
tential day trip destinations,
including a vineyard, an olive
grove and other agri-tourism
opportunities in Jackson and
Washington counties, along


"I think if we can get the right person on board, it can be
really successful "
Heather Lopez,
Administrative assistant for the Washington County TDC


with more traditional venues
like Florida Caverns State Park.
The operator would take things
from there, finding other desti-
nation opportunities and other-
wise building the operation. The
operator would run the tours as
a business with some promo-
tional support from the IDCs.
The operator's income would be
generated through the tour fees
that the company would charge
customers.
Heather Lopez, administra-
tive assistant for the Washington
County TDC, said no offers have


yet been received but several
interested parties have called
seeking more information.
The proposals will be opened
on Friday, and a joint TDC sub-
committee will look through
them on Sept. 4. They will se-
lect the most promising can-
didates and may go through
an interview process to decide
which operator they'll partner
with.
If no proposals are received,
the opportunity may be re-ad-
vertised, Lopez said, but she also
stressed that decision would be


something for the committee to
decide.
She said that, in addition to the
advertisements, the TDCs sent
proposal packets to nine known
tour providers, some of them
located across the Panhandle,
some in Central Florida, and two
in Dothan, Ala.
Lopez said she was optimistic
that some proposals will be in
hand by Friday. Operators were
to bring them to her office at
6762 5th St., in Chipley, or send
them to P.O. Box 450 in Chipley.
"I think if we can get the right
person on board, it can be really
successful," Lopez said of the
effort to begin bringing coastal
tourists inland for a few hours
to enjoy some of what Jackson
and Washington counties have
to offer.


She added that, although the
ad calls for an experienced op-
erator, she didn't think that
start-ups would be automati-
cally dismissed from consid-
eration. Likewise, she said, al-
though the ad indicates that the
operator needs to have access
to vans, buses and limousines
in order to accommodate both
small and large groups of tour-
ists, they would not necessar-
ily be required to own those
transportation units. They will
also be considered if they have
dependable partnerships with
transportation providers, she
said.
"Mainly, we want someone
who knows what they're doing,
who is dependable, and can
run this on their own," Lopez
said.


Gulf Coast braces for Hurricane Isaac


The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS The Gulf Coast
braced for the landfall of Hurri-
cane Isaac late Tuesday, hunkering
down behind boarded-up windows
with stockpiles of food and water as

out another storm on the eve of Hur-

Thursday night showdown


Hornets host Bulldogs

with upset in mind
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Marianna Bulldogs and Cottondale
Hornets will have Jackson County all to
themselves Thursday night, as they kick
off the regular season with an intra-coun-
ty matchup in Cottondale at 7 p.m.
The game will mark the fourth con-
secutive season in which the teams have
played, with the Bulldogs winning the
last three, including a 44-12 victory in
Marianna last year.
But the last time the two met in Cot-
tondale, the Bulldogs narrowly escaped
with a 28-22 win, so Marianna coach Tim
Cokely said he and his players are taking
nothing for granted.
"It's going to be a big ballgame," he said.
".(The Hornets) are returning all of their
starters, and county games are always
big. That's why you coach. You want to be
involved in games where everybody kind
of knows each other on the other side. It's
going to be a fun and exciting night."
The Bulldogs are coming off of a disap-
pointing fall debut in 30-12-home loss
to the West Florida Jaguars in Friday's
preseason classic.
However, Cokely said he was hesitant
to assign too much significance to a
preseason game.
"I'm not much of a reflective guy. It
was a sloppy game, but when it's over,
it's over," he said. "We have to move on
and get better. But we didn't play well. We
had a bunch of guys playing hard, and
we made some improvement team-wide.
We've just got to improve faster."
The Hornets split a pair of halves in
their jamboree Friday, losing 14-0 to Port
St. Joe before coming back to beat Mun-
roe 22-0.
Cottondale was plagued by four turn-
overs against Port St. Joe two fumbles
and two interceptions and that's a
trend that Melvin said must end if his
team is to have any success Thursday or
throughout the season.
"Against a team like Port St. Joe, you can't
turn the ball over and expect anything
good to happen," he said. "That's really
what we spent time on (Monday), doing
a better job of maintaining the football.
Offensively, we were able to move the ball
(Friday), but the turnovers got us."
Neither the Hornets nor Bulldogs were
able to practice Tuesday due to county
wide school closings, making an already
short week even shorter.
, Both teams will have just two full prac-
tice .days before Thursday to get ready.
That's not much time for scouting and.
implementing a game plan, but Melvin
said the focus of his team's work this week
is more inward.

MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Cottondale's Norris Calhoun runs with the football during a preseason jamboree Friday night
in Cottondale. The Hornets will play host to the Marianna Bulldogs onThursday at 7 p.m. in the
regular season opener for both teams.


"It's a big game for the school and a big
game for the county, but it's not a district
game," the Hornets coach said. "It's more
about getting us ready for that, so we're
spending our time on ourselves. We just
want to learn from the mistakes we made
in the classic. That's really what we were
focusing on anyway It's really no differ-
ence in what we're trying to do."
The Hornets will open district play Sept.
7 at Sneads.
Marianna won't get into league com-
petition until week six, but the Bulldogs
feel perhaps the same sense of urgency
to find their way quickly after Friday's
performance.
Cokely said it's impossible to pinpoint
one single area that is of most concern for
his team.
"Take your pick. It's an easy target," the
coach said. "We have a bunch of guys
playing well, but we've just got to put it

the great thing about football; it's about

the whole team suffers."
The Bulldogs coach said his team will
have its hands full with the experienced
Hornets on their field.
"They've got a good team. Coach Mel-
vin has done a real good job of getting
those guys prepared and ready for the
season," Cokely said. "They're a multiple
offense team, and they'll do some things
that cause problems for our defense. I'm

Tigers frustrated
by cancelled game

The Graceville Tigers junior
varsity team will have to wait
another week to make its regular
, season debut after its scheduled
-- opener against Freeport was
t cancelled Monday.
Graceville, which played a
quarter of last weekend's pre-
season classic against Holmes
County, will instead play its first
real game Sept. 6 at home against
Sneads.
It was a disheartening bit of
news for the Tiger players, ac-
cording to their coach, Butch
Burrell.
"The kids were upset. We're all
disappointed," he said. "They
were highly upset that they didn't
get to play in the fourth quarter
(against Holmes County), so not
having a game this Thursday is
tough. It makes it hard to prac-

Hungry Buccaneers eager


to begin Greg Schiano era


The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla.
A lucrative five-year, $47.5 million
contract was just one of the rea-
11 ons Carl Nicks found the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers attrac- ",
tive in free agency.
The All-Pro left guard spent
the past four seasons in New
Orleans as a key blocker for
Drew Brees on the Saints'
record-setting offense. He believes his
new team also has the talent to put up
impressive numbers, climb out of the
NFC South cellar and become a Super
Bowl contender.
The Bucs were 27th in the NFL in scor-
ing and also had one of the league's least
productive running games last year.


But they've got a rising young quarter-
back in Josh Freeman, and Nicks and
receiver Vincent Jackson were part of
a free agent haul-that first-year coach
Greg Schiano is counting to make a
difference.
S Tampa Bay finished 4-12 in
2011, including 10 consecutive
losses to end the season.
Nicks, Jackson and cornerback
Eric Wright signed deals worth
a combined $140.55 million on
the first day of free agency, each believ-

team that despite its struggles under

Bautista to have season-ending wrist surgery


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Toronto Blue Jays
slugger Jose Bautista will have sea-
son-ending surgery to stabilize a
tendon in his left wrist.
Bautista said before Tuesday
night's game against the New York
Yankees that the recovery period is
three to four months and he would
be ready to play long before the start
of spring training next year.
"There's just too much instabil-
ity in that tendon and it got to the
point where risking injuring the
tendon was not worth it," Bautista
said. "That's why we're opting to do
it now."
Bautista was initially injured in
an at-bat against the Yankees on
July 16. He chose to give rest and re-
hab a try and he returned from the


disabled list Friday. But he says,
while he did not experience any
pain, he felt the tendon moving
around too much and was taken out
of the game against the Baltimore
Orioles on Saturday. The two-time
defending AL home run champion
was immediately put back on the
DL and sent to Cleveland to see a
hand specialist.
Dr. Thomas Graham will per-
form the operation next week in
Cleveland.
"Luckily for me the tendon is com-
pletely intact," Bautista said. "He
just needs to make it stable again."
Manager John Farrell said Bau-
tista made it through his rehabili-
tation program without issue. But
the instability he was feeling when
he returned was what prompted the
recommendation for surgery.


'14 MLB All-Star game goes
to Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS A person with
knowledge of the decision says the
2014 All-Star Game will be played at
Target Field in Minneapolis.
The person spoke to The Associ-
ated Press on Tuesday on condition
of anonymity because the news
has not yet been announced by the
Twins or Major League Baseball.
The news was first reported by the
Star Tribune.
The Twins scheduled a news con-
ference for Wednesday afternoon
to make an unspecified "major an-
nouncement regarding an upcom-
ing event to be hosted at Target
Field," which opened in 2010.
Minnesota last hosted the All-Star
game in 1985, at the Metrodome.

common denominator
between this year's Bulldogs
team and past teams that
concerns him most.
"It's the speed. They've
got a lot of speed at a lot of
different positions," he said.
"Their quarterback (Der-
rick Knowles) is extremely
fast, and when he breaks
containment, he's danger-
ous. Teon Long is fast in the
backfield, and their receiv-
ers are fast. They're also big
up front."
While pulling off the up-
set over the 4A Bulldogs
will be a major challenge
for the 1A Hornets, Melvin


said he believes his team is
up for it.
"(The Bulldogs) are go-
ing to dress twice as many
kids as we'll dress, so we'll
just hang in there until the
end and take our chances,"
he said. "But if we didn't
think we could hang with
them, we wouldn't have
scheduled them. You take
the classifications out, and
our kids want to play Mari-
anna. It's good for our com-
munity to play them. It's
exciting."
The game will kick off at
7 p.m. The Hornets will be
missing one key player in
sophomore receiver/de-
fensive back Emmanual
Lockhart, who is out due to
injury.

Instead, they only got

Graceville's defense got
a stop on the next posses-

its offense, which picked
up a couple of first downs
before a grounding penalty
stalled the drive.
A turnover gave the ball
back to Holmes County
in Tiger territory, but the
defense again held strong
and kept the Blue Devils
out of the end zone to end
the quarter on top.
"I was real proud of
the defense. The defense
looked good," Burrell said.


"They exceeded my expec-
tations. We had a brand

only practiced for like a

"Offensively, we moved
the ball pretty well, but I

plays we had run a bunch

Annie's Ma box


Dear Annie: I am married to a great guy,
and we have two wonderful, intelligent
teens. But my mother-in-law is causing
great stress.
"Mama" was diagnosed with border-
line personality disorder 10 years ago
and is prescribed a cocktail of drugs to
help with a preponderance of violent
mood swings, anger, resentment and
occasional dissociation. She is a textbook
narcissist who can only demand love for
herself and is unable to give to others.
Her family relationships and many of her
friendships have taken a dive.
Her big trigger is perceived rejection.
When she was in our home, she expected
to be everyone's entire focus. She de-
manded the full attention and affection
of my husband and deeply resented his
relationship with his own children. Her
grandchildren have grown up without
her in their lives, although we have taken
care not to poison them against her.
Now, Mama has taken herself off all
meds and declared herself cured. She has
convinced herself that her diagnosis was


Bridge

Bridge players occasionally bid with fervor
instead of cool, calm, collected logic. As an ex-
ample, look at the North hand in today's dia-
gram. West opens three clubs, North makes a
takeout double, East passes, South advances
with three diamonds, and West passes. What
should North do now? W
North should assume that South has six or %
seven high-card points. (If your partner con-
stantly holds fewer than six points in this situa-
tion, get a new partner.) This means that North t
and South have 23 or 24 points between them. 4,
This will not be enough for game unless there
is a long suit to run.
Well, perhaps South has six diamonds headed
by the king-queen, but will that be good enough
for nine tricks? No, it supplies only seven: one
club and six diamonds. The lack of aces will be
fatal. And even if there is an eight-card major-
suit fit, North cannot search for it, because now
three hearts would promise a five-card suit.
North should pass. If South were in three
no-trump, East would lead the club nine, and
if West knew his stuff, he would cover with the
10 to drive out North's king. Then the contract
would go at least down three. In contrast, three
diamonds makes with an overtrick, losing one
spade, one diamond and one club.


wrong, and that her problem all along
has been emotional abuse from others,
ificluding her children and grandchil-
dren. In short, everyone else is to blame.
The trouble now is that she is blogging
on the Internet, publicly criticizing fam-
Sily members, including our teenage kids
and their cousins. The adults can dismiss
this as the ranting of a mentally 1ll per-
son, but we're afraid our kids are going to
come across the blog one of these days.
Any advice?
SLEEPLESS IN SONOMA

Dear Sonoma: You have our sympathy
dealing with such a difficult situation.
You don't have to poison the children
against Grandma to have a heartfelt
discussion on mental illness. The kids
are old enough to understand that their
grandmother is not well, and that her be-
havior can be unpredictable and some-
times unkind. They may never see her
blog, but if they do, you will have done all
you can to inoculate them against what-
ever damaging reaction they may have.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN wwwjcflondan corn


Defense
From Page 2B
Wake said. "I consider my-
self one of those guys."
The Dolphins also expect
to be strong inside, where
the 4-3 alignment allows
them to double up with
Paul Soliai and Randy
Starks. Each has made
the Pro Bowl, and at a
combined 650 pounds,
they're the biggest reasons
the defense should be
good.
. "In the scheme that we
play, to have two interior
dominant players is
absolutely key," Coyle said.
"It forces the offense into
situations where they can't
single blockthem, and then
we'll have our linebackers
freer to the football, which
is what we want. They're
guys that can not only eat
up blockers, but they can
make plays as well. That's
what we're counting on
them to do. We have to
be really strong inside
for us to be successful on
defense."
The Dolphins ranked
third in the NFL in run de-
fense last year, giving up
just 3.7 yards per carry. A
repeat performance would
put the defense in a po-
sition to force mistakes,
Philbin said.
"That gives you a start-
ing point," he said. "If you
can make a team get into a
situation where they have
to throw the ball, and they
can't knock you around
for 4 or 5 yards on first
down on a consistent ba-
sis, I think that gives your
defensive play-calling an
advantage."
While the front seven
returns mostly intact, the
shaky secondary has un-
dergone a shakeup. Safety
Yeremiah Bell, a five-year
starter, was released in
March at age 34, and cor-
nerback Vontae Davis was
traded after losing his No.
1 job in training camp to
newcomer Richard Mar-
shall, who has. 17 career
interceptions.


Jaguars
From Page 2B
"There's only one wayto respond
to it," receiver Mike Thomas said.
"You either respond to it or you
go in the tank. Everybody knows
what happens when you go in the
tank in this league."
The Jaguars know all about that,
having missed the playoffs four
consecutive seasons and 10 of the
last 12 years.
Last year was one of the worst
in franchise history. Starting quar-
terback David Garrard was cut
five days before the opener, Del
Rio was fired after a 3-8 start and
owner Wayne Weaver sold the
team to billionaire Shad Khan the
same day.


Schiano
From Page 2B
to win," Nicks said. "We're
trying to shock teams,
kind of like Detroit did
after their few years
of not doing so good
and how San Francisco
shocked the world last
season. We're trying to
do something like that,
bringing in veteran guys,
skill guys, Pro Bowlers.
"It's going to be fun to
see what we do out there."
Freeman shed 20
pounds during the offsea-
son and also reported to
training camp sporting a
stylish new haircut, eager
to put a disappointing
season behind him.
A year after having
one of the league's best
touchdowns-to-intercep-
tions ratios with 25 TDs
and only six picks while
nearly leading the Bucs to
a playoff berth, the 6-foot-
6,240-pound quarterback
threw for 16 touchdowns
vs. 22 interceptions.
Tampa Bay's defense
also shouldered part of
the responsibility for the
club's collapse following a
4-2 start. The Bucs yield-
ed a NGL-worst and fran-
chise-record 494 points,
while also finishing 30th
among 32 teams in yards
allowed and dead last in


Jacksonville finished 5-11, most-
ly because they had the league's
worst offense.
Mularkey was hired to turn
things around.
Although his first season in Jack-
sonville got off to a shaky start
- star running back Maurice
Jones-Drew skipped offseason
workouts and training camp, and
first-round draft pick Justin Black-
mon was arrested on a DUI charge
- Mularkey believes all the pieces
are in place to compete in the AFC
South.
It starts with quarterback Blaine
Gabbert. Gabbert started 14 games
as a rookie and was downright aw-
ful at times. He looked scared in
the pocket and misfired more of-'
ten than he connected. He had the
worst QB rating in the league while


rushing defense, sacks
and turnover margin.
"Reality is a beast, and
last year was reality," two-
time Pro Bowl right guard
Davin Joseph said, noting
players reported this
summer with a renewed
determination to do
whatever's necessary to
be successful.
"If you don't commit to
the offseason, if you don't
have structure, you don't
have discipline, you're not
going to be very good,"
the seventh-year pro
added. "I think reality
hit a lot of guys last year
on potentially how short
your career can be with-
out wins and potentially
how miserable football
can be without wins. A lot
of guys are committed to
putting football firsftnow.
That's exactly what we
need."
Joseph suffered a
season-ending right knee
injury in the third pre-
season game. But Schiano
remains confident the
Bucs can get the job done.

The only



ora.
ISYU


throwing for 2,214 yards, with 12
touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
He also was sacked 40 times.
Mularkey, offensive coordinator
Bob Bratkowski and quarterbacks
coach Greg Olson spent the offsea-
son breaking down every aspect
of Gabbert's game, tweaking his
footwork, honing his mechanics
and getting him more confident
with the pass rush.
"We're seeing quite a bit of im-
provement on a day-to-day ba-
sis with Blaine," Bratkowski said.
"Blaine is the most improved play-
er that I see out here on offense."
It helps that he has more talent
around him.
The Jaguars signed Laurent Rob-
inson to a five-year, $32.5 million
contract in March and then select-
ed fellow receiver Justin Blackmon


with the fifth overall pick in April's
NFLdraft.
The team also is counting on
tight end Marcedes Lewis, who
signed a $35 million contract af-
ter a breakout season in 2010,
to return to form. Lewis had 39
receptions for 460 yards and no
touchdowns last year, admittedly
distracted by his child-custody
case going on across the country
in Los Angeles.
The offense probably would be
even better if and when Jones-
Drew returns. Jones-Drew led the
NFL in rushing with 1,606 yards
last season, but has stayed away
from the team while seeking a
new contract. The Jaguars insist
they're not going to renegotiate
with a player who has two years
remaining on his contract.
