Local icon dies

the original
store was

An icon of downtown Mar-
ianna died Monday night at
the age of 87.
Lucien Watson Jr. was still
working six days a week at his
business, Watson Pharmacy,
until he suffered a heart at-
tack Sunday two weeks ago.
He had put in his usual full
morning that Saturday.
Watson followed his father,
Lucien Sr., into the phar-
macy business. Watson's son,
Phillip, in turn followed his
father into the business and
will continue to run it with
no break in service.
-Diane Cox, Watson's lon-
gest-term current employee,
is still on the job after 30
years. She has seen the op-
eration grow and transform
over the years. It started
strictly as a pharmacy and
has expanded over time to
include a jewelry store, a
hearing aide center and a
medical equipment store.
Cox remembers the day
she filled out her application
for a job with Watson.
"I was about 23, and I'd
been out of high school a few
years," she recalled, "I got all
the questions right but one
- I couldn't remember what
a 'gross' was I put that it

looked at the application, sat
down with me, and smiled,
said, 'You don't know what a
gross is?' I was nervous, too,
and he could tell. He told me
it was 144, instead, but not.

that. He took me on, anyway,
and he was a wonderful man

ighteen-month-old Baylor Barber
kept a family tradition going
Tuesday by helping his granny,
Donna Jurgonski, pick kumquats off a tree
planted by his great-grandparents, Wiley
and Gloria Pittman, at their home

The Agriculture Center on Penn Avenue was
packed during the 2011 Farm City Day celebration,

Jackson County

honors farm


The Jackson County Chamber of Com-
merce, Farm Credit of Northwest Florida
and the Jackson County Extension Service/
UF-IFAS will host the annual Farm City Day
Breakfast this Friday morning, from 7-9 a.m.
in the Jackson County Agriculture Complex
on Penn Avenue in Marianna.
The two main purposes of the day are to
recognize several growers for their accom-
plishments and to acknowledge the interde-
pendence of farm and city dwellers.
Jackson County Chamber President and
CEO Art Kimbrough explained.
"Agriculture has historically been the
baseline.industry in Jackson County and is
still one of the most important contributors
to our economy; I think the impact ranges
between $80-$100 million annually."
Kimbrough said the impact of agriculture
reaches far beyond the dollar, as well.
"It's beyond the economic piece,"
Kimbrough said. "It's just as important cul-
turally; it goes to our identity, to who we are
as a community. Our heritage and roots are
in agriculture. Even though we don't have as
many people today making their full-time
living off agriculture as we did 50 years ago,
it is still in integral part."
Kimbrough said the interdependence
of farm and city becomes clear when one
thinks of the equipment that farmers must
by from providers in the city, and when one
thinks about the fact that farmers put food
on the table of every kitchen in the city.
"Farming has become a sophisticated in-
dustry; it's high-tech big business, with new
technology emerging in the machinery our
growers use, but at the same time it's still
very much family-oriented here. This is a
chance to celebrate all that the farmers do
and what it means to Jackson County and
the world. It plays into the economy beyond
buying necessities to run the farm, and it
keeps the thread of heritage in our commu-
nity. When you drive outside the city limits
of Marianna, it takes about a nanosecond
to see that you're driving by farm land and
that you're in a rural community. This day is
really a way to celebrate who we are, and to
draw together the rural industry and the city
businesses that depend on each other."

The Petraeus

CIA tragedy

P politicians and commentators have been quick to

see a conspiracy in the departure of CIA direc-
tor Gen. David Petraeus, who abruptly resigned
Friday after admitting an affair with his biographer.
Rep. Peter King, the New York Republican who chairs
the. House Homeland Security Committee, on Sunday
suspected there was a White House cover-up and later
attacked the FBI, saying it was "derelict in its duty" when
it failed to contact the president immediately when it
learned of the affair.
Others are tying the Petraeus scandal to the attack
on Benghazi. Petraeus was scheduled to testify before
Congress this week on the attack on the U.S. consulate
that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris
The resignation requires rigorous review, and if any-
body was playing politics, heads should roll. Petraeus
still should testify on Libya.
Yet we suspect this sad turn of events has more to do
with human failings than political machinations.
We have the highest regard for the local FBI office,
which first handled the complaint that led to the unrav-
eling of the affair.
Consider the outrage that rightfully would have oc-
curred had the FBI rushed to judgment.
A Tampa woman several months ago alerted a local
FBI agent and acquaintance that she was receiving ha-
rassing emails.
The FBI investigated and eventually traced the emails
to Paula Broadwell, who had written a biography of Pe-
traeus. Agents later discovered explicit emails that were
eventually linked to Petraeus, though it was unclear at
the time if he was connected to the harassing emails (he
was not).
According to news reports, it was not until late sum-
mer that the FBI knew the delicacy of the matter. It pro-
ceeded cautiously.
Broadwell was not interviewed until the week of Oct.
21, when she acknowledged the affair and turned over
a personal computer that contained several classified
documents. The next week, according to The New York
Times, agents interviewed Petraeus, who admitted the
affair but said he had not turned over any classified
documents to her, which she confirmed. She was inter-
viewed again Nov. 2.
The agents cleared Petraeus of any wrongdoing and
notified James Clapper, director of national intelligence,
around 5 p.m. on Election Day about the investigation.
It should not surprise anyone that Petraeus would re-
sign. Affairs are hardly unusual in Washington, but as
the head of the nation's intelligence agency, the lapse
had the potential for compromising national security.
Petraeus held himself accountable, a refreshing con-
trast to the usual denials and excuse-making that ac-
companies high-profile indiscretions.
This failure does not change the fact that Petraeus is a
genuine American hero who led our troops bravely and
brilliantly in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also headed U.S.
Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa
with distinction.
We hope he and his family deal successfully with'this
trauma and he is given another opportunity to serve.
There are plenty of unanswered questions, including
how Broadwell obtained the classified documents. Con-
gress should scrutinize how all this evolved just as it
should aggressively try to get to the bottom of what hap-
pened in Benghazi.
Perhaps evidence of a conspiracy or cover-up will
But sometimes things are what they seem a very
good man made a very bad mistake.

Nice work if you can get it

Florida Voices

lorida unemployment offices
are not cushy places. The
chairs are hard. The walls are
barren. Desperation hangs in the
air. So many people want to hunt
for jobs online some can't afford
computers at home that waiting
for one is not uncommon.
The message is clear: The state
doesn't want you to get all comfy in
the unemployment office, doesn't
want to make it all that easy to get
benefits. After all, you are almost
certainly undeserving and, if you
can swing it, would prefer to hang
around the house all day watching
YouTube videos and eating Fritos.
Why, here in Florida, we aren't
even supposed to call them "unem-
ployment benefits" now, because,
undeserving as you are, you might
begin to think you are getting paid
not to work. Gov. Rick Scott insists
on calling the weekly pittance, $275
max, "re-employment benefits," as
if a word will keep your lazy mind
focused on the task: getting a job.
And who better to understand

this than Hunting Deutsch?
Scott hired him this year to head
what the governor refuses to call
the Department of Labor. The gov-
ernor prefers the term Department
of Economic Opportunity, and it
certainly has been that for Deutsch.
Before getting the job, Deutsch
received an undisclosed amount
of unemployment benefits for
an undisclosed amount of time
between 2009 and 2011, according
to the Florida Current, a Tallahas-
see online publication focused
on nonpartisan coverage of state
policy and politics.
You're supposed to receive Florida
benefits for only 23 weeks now, and
you must prove that you're looking
for work while slurping from the
public trough. Yet Deutsch, a for-
mer bank executive whose job was
managing other people's millions,
spent his time unemployed cashing
in his bank stocks and taking his
family repeatedly to Europe.
I thought there had to be a rea-
sonable explanation for Deutsch's
reported payout from the state. And
surely Rick Scott would not be so
clueless as to hire a man who has

the word "undeserving" written all
over him.
But no, Deutsch told the Current.
"Quite frankly, [I] didn't have to
So maybe Deutsch used his
unemployment benefits to tip the
doormen at the Ritz on the Place
Vendome in Paris.
Now I get it. Deserving your job-
less benefits depends on whether
you pass your time while unem-
ployed scarfing Fritos or sipping
ancient wines recommended by the
Ritz sommelier. There's low-class
laziness and high-class laziness, I
Deutsch told the Current that
his years unemployed gave him
"an extraordinary perspective" on
what it's like to be out of a job,
applying for benefits and then find-
ing a new job, particularly
one that the public pays for. The
job has only one drawback, as best
as I can tell. You can't go to Paris so

Amend the state Constitution

to ensure more voter access

Florida Voices

weree the lines so ob-
scenely long?
Because the state legis-
lature wanted them long, and there
was little anyone could do to stop
This was not an accident or poor
planning. Hoping to dissuade
Democratic-leaning voters from
being counted, the legislature
intentionally reduced early voting
periods and placed on the ballot
exceedingly long and multi-part
amendments. This witches brew of
less time to vote and a longer ballot
to review produced a voting system
that failed its primary function,
namely, to provide citizens with
a meaningful opportunity to cast
their vote.
Under current law there was little
Florida's citizens could do to pro-
tect themselves from this arrogant
Overreaching by their legislature.
That is why I believe our citizens
need to take the extraordinary step
of enshrining in our state constitu-
tion an amendment that guaran-
tees every citizen meaningful voter
Yes, it's very sad that the citizens
of our state need their rights pro-
tected from their own government.
But if there is anything this last
election has taught us, it's that our
right to vote is clearly imperiled in
I propose adding a new section
to Article VI of the state constitu-
tion, which would include language
guaranteeing to every Floridian the

right to meaningful voter access
and opportunity. A provision that
would ensure notwithstanding
the excesses of our own elected
officials that we have sufficient
personnel, equipment and loca-
tions and that elections are conve-
nient and orderly.
If citizens adopt it, this provision
would give Florida courts jurisdic-.
tion to make sure the legislature
and county election supervisors
provide an orderly voting process.
Citizens would have a remedy, and
judges would be empowered to
order counties or state officials to
provide adequate voting booths,
expand early voting periods and
make sure people don't have to
endure long lines to vote.
In Florida this change is nec-
essary. Gov. Rick Scott's recent
announcement that he intends to
look into what happened in the
last election is ironic because he
needs to look no further than the
mirror. Everything that happened
on election day shorter voting
periods, longer ballots, limited
early-voting sites and the horren-
dous lines was Gov. Scott's (and
the Republican Legislature's) doing.
One proponent of the election bill
proudly declared during debate,
"I don't have a problem making it
harder to vote."
How about this as a recommen-
dation. Governor: Don't suppress
the vote!
But we cannot trust that will
happen. For more than a decade,
Republican legislators and gover-
nors have repeatedly manipulated
voting procedures here to gain

advantages at the polls.
Courts declared some of their
misguided efforts like artificially
making it harder to register voters
- unconstitutional and contrary
to federal law. But much of what
they have done like purposely
creating long waiting periods in
early voting because democratic-
leaning voters tend to early vote
- remained outside the protection
of federal courts because only a few
of Florida's counties stand under
the umbrella of the federal Voting
Rights Act.
So while I applaud organiza-
tions and individuals who recom-
mend the state move forward with
election reforms, Florida will still
remain at the mercy of our legis-
lature. Citizens on line at polls last
week know to expect little mercy
from there.
So while there are already many
well intended groups putting to-
gether proposed reforms and blue-
ribbon recommendations, let's not
pretend this happened because the
legislature or Gov. Scott didn't have
enough proposals on how to run an
A constitutional right to mean-
ingful voter access will change this
dynamic and shift the power to
citizens. I recognize there's already
too much in Florida's Constitution
lacking the weight of true consti-
tutional principles. But few rights
are as essential as voting and none
is as fundamental to a working

Socialite at center of general's sex scandal

The Associated Press

TAMPA If you were
to diagram the increas-
ingly tangled sex scandal
surrounding former CIA
Director David Petraeus,
nearly all lines would lead
back to one person: Jill
Kelley, a 37-year-old Tam-
pa socialite who hosted
parties for the nation's top
military brass.
Kelley's complaint about
anonymous, threatening
email triggered the FBI
investigation that led to
Petraeus' downfall. And
now she is at the center
of an investigation of the
top U.S. commander in
Afghanistan over alleged
"inappropriate communi-
cations" between the two.
Kelley is a close friend of
the Petraeus family, and
photographs circulating in
the media show the dark-
haired woman posing for
pictures at parties with
Petraeus, his wife, and her
husband, Scott, a cancer
surgeon. She served as a
sort of unofficial social
ambassador for U.S. Cen-
tral Command in Tampa,
holding gatherings for the
general when he was com-
mander there from 2008 to
She also met Gen. John
Allen while he was at Cen-
tral Command, and now
investigators are looking
at 20,000-plus pages of
documents and emails
between Kelley and Allen,
some of which have been
described as "flirtatious."
The general has denied
any wrongdoing.
For her part, Kelley has
taken a low profile since
Petraeus' affair with his bi-
ographer, Paula Broadwell,
became public. The Kelleys
have hired Washington
lawyer Abbe Lowell, who
has represented corrupt
lobbyist Jack Abramoff and
former presidential candi-
date John Edwards. Lowell
did not immediately return
a call.
On Tuesday, Kelley could
be seen through the large

windows of her SouthTa m-
pa home, a stately two-sto-
ry brick house with a half-
dozen white columns and
a manicured lawn. In the
driveway was a silver Mer-
cedes with a license plate
marked "Honorary Coun-
sel." Kelley's identical twin
sister, Natalie Khawam,
a lawyer, also lives at the
In the afternoon, Kelley,
wearing dark sunglasses,
left through the front door
and ignored reporters'
questions as she drove off
in the Mercedes.
South Tampa has a con-
servative Southern upper
class, with big houses, big
bank accounts, garden
clubs and wives who pride
themselves on volunteer
work. MacDill Air Force
Base, Fla., headquarters
to Central Command, is
a big deal in the commu-
nity, in part because a lot
of the brass lives or so-
cializes in South Tampa.
Helping members of the

unteer activity in the
Former Mayor Pam Io-
rio said that she went to
several parties to benefit
the military at the Kelleys'
home, and they drew Mac-
Dill's top brass, including
Petraeus. But they were
by far not the only parties
held around the city for
MacDill's officers.
"Our community's rela-
tionship with MacDill is
just multi-faceted," said
Iorio, who later invited
the Petraeuses over to
her own home for dinner.
"It's something that is
generational. People sin-
cerely care about the
Ken Walters, a neighbor
who is known for hosting
a Frank Sinatra-themed
party each year, called the
Kelleys good friends and
said he went to a party the
couple had to celebrate

sister, they're certainly not
shrinking violets," he said.
Walters recalled that when
the sisters first entered the
South Tampa social scene,
they "rubbed people the
wrong way. I think they
probably stepped on a
couple of toes."
Petraeus' affair with
Broadwell was discovered
after Kelley told an FBI
agent friend that she had
received email warning
her to stay away from Pe-
traeus. The email turned
out to be from Broadwell,
who apparently regarded
Kelley as a rival for Petrae-
us' affections. Kelley's fam-
ily and Petraeus aides have
said Petraeus and Kelley
were just friends.
In another strange foot-
note to the scandal, long
before the case involving
Petraeus got under way,
the FBI agent had sent Kel-
ley shirtless photos of him-
self, according to a federal
law enforcement official.
Kelley's brother, David
Khawam, told WPVI-TV in
Philadelphia on Monday
night that details df the al-
legations surged fast.
"It's a shock. We're
trying to figure out where

the pieces are falling right
now," he said in an inter-
view at his office in West-
mont, N.J.
He said that his family
left Lebanon for suburban
Philadelphia's Huntingdon
Valley in the 1970s to es-
cape the turmoil and fight-
ing in their homeland. His
parents opened a Middle

Kelley later married and
moved to Florida with her
husband, who works at a
cancer clinic.
Kelley regularly kept in
touch with Petraeus when

he became commander of
the Afghanistan war, the
two exchanging near-daily
emails and instant mes-
sages, two of his former
staffers said. But those
messages were exchanged
in accounts that his aides

duties and were not ro-

Jill and Scott Kelley have
been involved in at least
nine legal actions since
arriving in Tampa, accord-
ing to court records. Most
of them involve real estate
transactions, including
one foreclosure and an
$11,000 judgment against
the couple in a Pennsylva-
nia case.
In another twist in the
scandal, court records
indicate that Petraeus
and Allen intervened two
months ago in a messy
custody dispute on behalf
of Jill Kelley's sister. Both
four-star generals wrote
letters supporting Natalie
Khawam in her custody
The judge in the case
awarded Khawam's ex-
husband custody last year
of their son. He also called
Khawam dishonest and
lacking in integrity.

major indexes between

jumped 3.6 percent after
the big-box retailer beat
expectations for its fiscal

against the backdrop of the
"fiscal cliff," a set of U.S.
government spending cuts
and tax increases that will
take effect automatically at
the beginning of next year
unless U.S. leaders reach a
compromise before then.
Worries about the fiscal
cliff pushed U.S. stocks to
one of their worst weekly
losses of the year last week
after voters re-elected Pres-
ident Barack Obama and a
deeply divided Congress.
Obama met Tuesday with
labor leaders and others
who advocate higher taxes
on the wealthy and want to
protect health benefits for
seniors and other govern-
ment programs. Obama
will meet with business
leaders Wednesday.

nothing" about the nation's
fiscal issues, "the more this

tainty," said Craig Johnson,
senior technical research
strategist with Piper Jaffray

Thanksgiving travel should increase slightly

The Associated Press

NEW YORK Slightly
more Americans will hit
the road this Thanksgiv-
ing, according to AAA. That
includes people who are
choosing to drive instead
of fly as household bud-
gets remain tight.
In its annual Thanksgiv-
ing travel forecast released
Tuesday, AAA predicts 43.6
million Americans will
travel at least 50 miles from
home over the holiday, up
just 0.7 percent from last
But while more people
are traveling, it appears
that the pent-up demand
seen following the reces-
sion has largely dissipated.
Demand grew a healthy 8
percent and 6 percent, re-
spectively, in the two previ-
ous Thanksgiving holiday
periods even though eco-
nomic growth was moder-
ate. Now, AAA says it will
take a stronger economy
to spur a significant jump
in travel demand going
"Despite mild improve-
ments in unemployment,
the housing market and
greater consumer opti-
mism, the economy is still
struggling to keep its head
above water," AAA said in
its forecast.
The number of travel-
ers forecast to drive, fly

Sunday, Nov. 25.
AAA's forecast, which is
produced from a combi-
nation of a traveler survey
and economic analysis,
was done before Super-
storm Sandy hit the East
Coast. AAA said it doesn't
yet know the full impact
the storm will have on
travel in the Mid-Atlantic
region, but it expects it will
be significant.

In this Nov. 22, 2011, photo, cars fill the highway two days
before Thanksgiving in, San Diego. The number of Americans
hitting the road for Thanksgiving in 2012 is expected to
increase slightly from a year ago, according to AAA's annual
Thanksgiving travel forecast released Tuesday, Nov. 13,2012.

or hop on a train or bus
this holiday is still 26 per-
cent below the peak in
2005 and 14 percent below
Air travel is expected
to decline, one sign that
many households con-
tinue to feel financially
pinched. AAA expects 3.14
million people to fly, down
from 3.2 million a year
earlier. Even with gas at a
current national average
of $3.44 per gallon, driving
the family from New Eng-
land to the Midwest to see
the relatives is still cheaper
than flying.
And filling up the tank
will take less money than
people expected when the
survey was conducted in

early October. That's be-
cause of a dramatic drop
in gas prices. The national
average has declined 35
cents per gallon in the
last month. AAA expects
further declines through
the holiday. Still, the price
of gas on Thanksgiving
Day should be around last
year's record of $3.32 per

But it wasn't his tears that
she remembers most often
about Watson-it was his
"What I remember the
most is that he would al-
ways come to work and
make you laugh," she said.
"Let's start off the day with
some jokes, that was his
philosophy about getting
the day off to a happy start.
He loved to get a new one
from his Rotary friends or
the sales reps he saw and
bring it in to us and to his
Cox also remembers Wat-
son's compassion.
"He was always there for
the customers," Cox said.
"When people couldn't pay
for their medications, he'd
say, 'Diane, would you just
go ahead and do a prom-
issory note and let them
go ahead and take their
medicine. He just couldn't
let them not have their
medication. I'm going to
miss him. The Watsons are
wonderful people."
She also remembers the
love that was so apparent
between her boss and his
wife, Lois.
"When she came iq the
door, you'd just see that
smile spread across his
face," she said. "They were
always so very loving."
When Cox first started,
the store had more gift
items, makeup, holiday
cards and such. She started
as a sales person in those
departinents but went on
to work in the jewelry de-
partment and now serves
as a bookkeeper.
She's not the only one
who remembers the earlier
days when the pharmacy
was in its younger days.
It once had a dance hall
and jukebox upstairs,-. a
soda fountain downstairs,
and once included a signif-
icantly-sized toy section.
Eventually, though, those
things faded into memory.
And when a propane gas
fire destroyed his father's
original building in the
early 1950s, Lucien Jr. re-
built with improvements
for the modern age. Phillip
wasn't even born ivhen the
fire happened, but could
imagine his father's deter-
mination to raise the busi-
ness from the ashes.
"His theme was never
give up," Phillip said.

Neily Estes Lockhart, 73,
of Marianna, died Sunday,
November 11, 2012, at
Chipola Nursing Pavilion.
Mr. Lockhart was a mem-
ber of Eastside Baptist
Church, and was a retired
Auditor with Ramada Inn
He is preceded in death
by his parents, Jimmie Mae
and James Lockhart.

Among Watson's accomplishments was serving two years as the mayor of Marianna.

"Adapt and go forward,
that was his policy."
Watson found a new way
to help people when he
expanded his operation
to include medical equip-
ment and hearing aides.
Son Phillip says his father
found great joy in his later
years as the primary hear-
ing aid fitter.
"He got a lot of pleasure
out of helping people be
able to hear again," Phil-
lip Watson said. "Our chief
pharmacist now is Larry
Alford, and my father had
started spending more
time on that as he slowed
down a little."
Phillip's father had essen-
tially taken over the drug
store in the mid-1950s for
his own father, Lucien Sr.,
who had opened it in Janu-
ary 1912. Phillip said he
finds it of great comfort to
realize that his father lived
to see the store's 100th an-
niversary and that both
his father and grandfather
each spent more than 50
years in the pharmacy
He remembers his father
often delivering 'medi-
cines to people after hours,
many times at night. Once,
he said, his dad went out
at 2 a.n4. to deliver cold
medicine to a child. Al-
though Watson was most
focused on his business,
customers and family, he
also found some time to
serve on the Marianna City
Commission a few decades
back, once taking a term as
mayor. His own father was
a charter member of the
Marianna Rotary Club, and
he was an active member
throughout most of his
adult life.

He is survived by his
wife, Elouise Green Lock-
hart of Marianna; one son,
Darrell Lockhart and wife,
Jodi of Sneads; one broth-
er, Norman Lockhart of Au-
burn, WA.; one sister, Bev-

Watson and his drug-

a friendly relationship all
through their years.
Willie Earl Paramore,
whose son, Scott, has since
took over his business
at Paramores Pharmacy
about 20 years ago, remem-
bers when he told Watson
he was going to retire.
"He was a year older than
me, so I used to joke that
he kept me from being the
oldest pharmacist in town,
Paramore recalled. "He's
been my friend since 1953,
back when I was his com-
petitor at Hightower Drug-
store. But we didn't have
any animosity toward each
other, in fact we all helped
each other. If one of us ran
out of this or that,he might
send a delivery boy to get
or.send things. We kept a
paper tab on it, and maybe
once a month we'd settle.

Paramore remembered
that Watson stepped, in to
help the widow of a local
pharmacist keep the busi-
ness going for about six
weeks after her husband
passed away.
Watson once served or
the American Pharmaceu-
tical Assocatioi's judicial
board, which performed
a quasi-disciplinary func-
tion. He also was a key fig-
ure in a regional chapter of
the Florida Pharmaceuti-
cal Association which once
met regularly in Marianna.
The fact that Watson
worked until his last days
didn't surprise Paramore.
"He tried to talk me out of
retiring, he thought I need-
ed to keep working," Para-
more said. "He thought I'd
be miserable, but in truth
I've had a great time. I've
been playing 20 years, and
he's been working. He was
sincere, and I appreciate
that he tried to keep me

him, I think.

'Guru' swindler of French aristocrats gets eight years

The Associated Press

PARIS He started with
the woman who hired him
at the secretarial school,
befriending her and win-
ning her confidence. She
introduced him to her el-
derly mother, her children.
Her grandchildren, near-
ing adulthood, were next.
Soon, Thierry Tilly was
almost a member of the
family of aristocrats.
Then he dropped the
bombshell: Someone
wanted them dead.
Bit by bit, family mem-
bers saw sinister motives
in even ordinary encoun-
ters. They retreated to their
chateau, where Tilly took
away their clocks, their cal-
endars, their sense of time.
One by one, they relocated
with him to Oxford, Eng-
land, then returned to their
Bordeaux home where, the
family lawyer said, they
were cut off from friends
and relatives.
"There was no day and
no night," said the lawyer,
Daniel Picotin.
Protection didn't come

cheap: They sold their an-
cestral home, apartments,
jewels, wine collection,
luxury watches more
than 4.5 million euros in
all handing over the
proceeds to Tilly, a man
they saw as their protector,
even their "guru."
The family was in hiding
for nearly a decade before
two of the adult children
realized Tilly wasn't what
he appeared.
"We were a normal
family that stumbled
into an abnormal story,"
Christine de Vedrines, who
first sounded the alarm
when her employer de-
clared she and her family
were being brainwashed,
said in a radio interview.
"Thierry Tilly is not a guru;
he's a predator."
Tilly, whose manipula-
tion of the de Vedrines
family has led to com-
parisons to the Russian
mystic Rasputin's legend-
ary influence over the tsar,
was sentenced to eight
years in prison on Tues-
day, convicted of arbitrary
detention, using violence

against vulnerable people
and abusing people weak-
ened by "psychological
Tilly held the family
in his sway from 2000, a
year after he was hired by
Ghislaine de Vedrines to
work at her secretarial
school, until 2009. During
that time, he led 11 people

Lady Tigers cruise in opener

The Malone Lady Tigers opened
up their season Monday night with
a home victory over the visiting Bay
High Lady Tornadoes.
Curteeona Brelove led Malone with
17 points and six blocks, with Angel-
ica Livingston adding 12 points, and
Brianna Dallas seven.
After a somewhat sluggish start
to the game, the Lady Tigers quick-
ly seized control of the game and

dominated the first half, taking a 33-
8 lead into the break.
Malone extended the lead to 30 in
the third quarter before resting its
starters in the fourth.
"It took us a little while to start
scoring," Malone coach Byron Wil-
liams said after the game. "But then
we started pressing and they started
turning the ball over and we were
able to get some layups."
Malone split its two preseason
games, losing by 28 points to Ponce

De Leon and winning by 30 over
Williams said the performance
against PDL was disappointing, but
he started seeing more positives in

year. I think we're taking steps in that

Hornets trying

to get back in

playoff chase

After a dominant district season that
ended with a disappointing district title
loss and an early exit from the playoffs,
the Cottondale Hornets will look to rees-
tablish themselves as the premier team
in District 2 this year with a mix of battle-
tested vets and talented newcomers.
The Hornets won 19 games last season
and went 12-0 in the regular season in
league play, but they were knocked off by
Graceville in the championship game and
then defeated byWest Gadsden in the first
round of the playoffs.
Much of the core of that team returns this
season highly motivated to make a return
to the playoffs and beyond, led by starting
senior point guard Sheldon Vann and ath-
letic senior forward Sheldon Vann.
But Cottondale coach Chris Obert said
that making that happen will be difficult
given the level of competition in the dis-
trict and in Class 1A.
"Itwillbe tough. Graceville has got a good
team coming back. Sneads andVernon are
always pretty good, and Altha and Wewa
are always capable of beating you and al-
ways have solid teams as well," he said. "I
don't think we're the type of team to just
go out on a bad night and whip somebody,
but if we play our game and play hard and
play tough, I think we'll have a shot to play
with anybody. We've probably just got less
room for error this year."

Tigers take

another stab


The last month has been
about as good. for the
Graceville Tigers as any
month in recent memory.
Not only did the Tigers
take two lopsided district
victories to clinch their first
league title since 2006, they
finished the year with victo-
ries over their two biggest
rivals in Cottondale and
Up next is a first-round
matchup with the Freeport
Bulldogs on Friday in the
first home playoff game in
Graceville since 2006.
Suffice it to say, the feel-
ing on the GHS campus this
week is one that has been
foreign to the program for
the last half decade.
"From the whole commu-
nity, it's been real positive,"
Tigers coach Mark Beach
said Tuesday. "I haven't been
around here before this year
so I don't get this the way the
people here do, but beating
Cottondale and Chipley in
the same year is a pretty big
deal. I guess they'll hire me
back for one more year."
Last week's dramatic 42-
41 comeback win over Chi-
pley capped off the regular
season with a six-game win-
ning streak.

7 -Graceville facing

i large expectations


Graceville coach Matt
Anderson's first season
with the Tigers couldn't
have gone much better, as
they rallied late in the year
to knock off top seeded
Cottondale in the district
championship game and
win a playoff game before
eventually falling in the 1A
Regional Finals.
Going into his second
season, Anderson's Tigers
no longer get to play the
role of underdog, as they
come in as the prohibitive
favorites in District 2.

"It's a little bit different,"
the coach said. "You're go-
ing to get everybody's best
shot this year, just like Cot-
tondale did last year. We're
going to have to be ready
to play every night. I hope
we're to that point. The
good thing is that with our
depth, our practices are
going to be very intense, so
hopefully that keeps us at a
certain level week to week
so that when we're taking
those best shots from ev-
erybody, we're able to han-
dle it and sustain that level
of intensity we need."

From Page 1B

To stretch that streak to
seven, the Tigers will have
to knock off a team that
they've tried and failed
to beat twice this year al-
ready, losing to Freeport
in the spring and again in
the regular season.
The 27-7 Bulldogs win
in Freeport on Sept. 28
was the last time Gracev-
ille was beaten, and the
Bulldogs will try to make
a bookend of that victory
Friday and make it to the
second round of the play-
offs for the second straight
"They've had our num-
ber," Beach said of the
Bulldogs. "(The last loss)
was about everything. It
was our immaturity, my
immaturity .... just the
whole team. We didn't do
anything that well. We
obviously made some
mistakes that we can see
on film. We're trying to fix
those things, but wanting
to do it and actually doing
it are different things. It's a
tough task because they're
very good. We didn't do a
very good job last time."
Freeport led the game
14-7 at halftime before
shutting out Graceville
13-0 in the second half.
The Bulldogs outgained
the Tigers 325 to 190, with
junior quarterback Gabe

From Page 1B
The Tigers are consid-
ered good bets to repeat in
district primarily because
of the return of leading
scorers Rasheed Campbell
and Marquis White.
A versatile forward,
White'averaged 18 points
and eight rebounds last
season, while the speedy
point guard Campell put
in 14 points and six assists
per night.
Wherever the Tigers go,
the two senior stars will
likely be the driving force
that gets them there.
"Rasheed is a natural
leader, especially playing
the point guard position,"
Anderson said. "He comes
into practice every day and
works hard and does ev-
erything you ask. As far as
Marquis goes, he's picked
it up from that standpoint
and become a bigger lead-
er and gotten better on the
defensive end. Those guys
lead by example."
But Graceville returns
other key players from
last season like guards
Devonte Merritt and Malik
Franklin, Rashard McKin-
nie, and wing shooter Tay-
lor Rousseau.
The Tigers will also get
help inside from football
player CJ Miller, who didn't
play last year, and Chipley
transfers Ryan Dawson
and Daniel Davis.
Dawson is a. 6-foot-4
junior who saw times on
Chipley's state title team
last year, while Davis is a
6-foot-3 sophomore who
played junior varsity last

give Graceville the kind of
inside-out balance it often
lacked last season.

fers) and CJ Miller, that

ing the extra pass and with

liams said. "But overall I

While the game was
a disappointment for
Graceville after its break-

Sneads the previous week,
Beach said the loss was
a turning point for the
"We were trying to find
an identity and it kind of
clicked after that loss,"
he said. "We said we're
going to run the ball and
be committed to it. That's
what we're going to do this
year. I just made my deci-
sion that this was going
to be our identity. Some-
times as a coach you can
outthink yourself trying to
throw the ball and using
different formations and
all that. In this situation,
less was more.
"We were trying to do
too much. When I went
back and reevaluated that,
it was one of those things
that helped propel us in
our season to get better."
The Tigers have been a
dominant run team ever
since and have compiled
3,091 yards and 35 touch-
downs on the ground on
the year.
Freeport has been a
much more balanced at-
tack, rushing for 184 yards
per game and passing for
149 yards per game.

Anderson said. "With
those kids and (varsity
newcomer Jared Padgett),
that gives us four kids that
are 6-3 or taller and we
didn't have anybody that

"And they're all athletic,
can run and jump, and
have different parts of
their game that add things
we didn't have. Some
like Jared and Daniel can

like Ryan and CJ can add

Cole leads the team with
643 yards and five rushing
TDs, with Moore passing
for 1,069 yards and 14 TDs
to just three interceptions
while also gaining 403
yards on the ground with
four more TDs.
It's Moore, who also
threw two late touch-
downs to lift the Bulldogs
by the Tigers in the spring,
who Beach said concerns
him the most.
"It's enough said about
him. Everyone knows how
great he is," the coach said.
"It's definitely a challenge
(to try to stop him). He
does it all. The only thing
I saw that he couldn't do
on film I think is kick field
goals. But he can run the
ball, throw the ball, pass
out the water, he plays de-
fense. We've just got to try
to corral him. When he's
in space, he's dangerous.
He's hard to contain."
Freeport last played in
Graceville just last year
and took a 34-6 victory,
with Cole rushing for 129
yards and a touchdown
and Moore rushing and
throwing for a TD.
At this point, Beach said
the Tigers players are pret-
ty anxious to get another
shot at' finally getting a
game off of the Bulldogs.
"They are, but now they
kind of feel like mentally
they know what winning
is now," he said. "Those
lights are on. It's just like
last week. That game was

rebounding. They shore

"We've worked hard
enough and stressed that
you can still hang around
and be in a game. Those
guys just know what their
job is now and they're
ready. They do want to go
out there and play well."
Beach said he knows his
team will have a major
battle on its hands, if for
no other reason the Bull-
dogs' veteran coach Jim
"I really look up to him.
He's a great coach and just
does a super job with his
guys," he said. "He's been
to state championship
games and has more expe-
rience than I could dream
of. They've got a great
coach and a ton of experi-
ence with that team, so it's
got to be in their favor.
"Honestly, our guys have
no pressure on them. I
think the pressure is on
Freeport. My biggest thing
is just being able to have a
home playoff game for the
guys and the community.
(The players) know what
they've got to do. We know
what our weaknesses and
strengths are. Now we just
have to go play a good
football game."

and probably one of the
best two defensive play-
ers we had even as a fresh-
man. He brought so much
to the table. We probably
won't know how much-it
means losing him. until
later in the year."
But Graceville willtstill
have a good deal of talent
and depth, enough so to
play more at the kind of
pace and style that Ander-
son said he prefers.

From Page 1B

That's largely due to the
loss of leading scorer Jer-
rod Blount and his team-
leading 19 points per
Roulhac will have to
take on more of the scor-
ing load in his absence,
as will Vann, but Obert
said it would take a team-
wide effort to replace all
of the things that Blount
brought to the table.
"Rod was a good player
and a good kid. It was ajoy
having him and he was a
big part of our team," the
coach said. "He was a nat-
ural born scorer. We won't
be able to rely on him this
year, but I think every-
body will need to pick up
the slack a little bit, and
we'll probably have to do
it a little more together
and make it a more team
effort where everybody is
picking up the slack."
The Hornets also lost
key players in guard Pren-
tice Webb and three-point
specialist Brandon Frank-
lin, with newcomers

Darius Roulhac, Tristan
Braxton, Kadeem Webb,
and Dakota Haddock
looking to come in and
find playing time.
Junior guard and de-
fensive specialist Norris
Calhoun will also return
along with physical senior
post player Eli Jackson
and 6-foot-3 senior post
Jacquez Walker.
Cottondale also got a
pair of transfers in 6-foot-
5 post Kyshon Ali and
guard Mike Gallon.
The Hornets may not
play at the rapid-fire pace
they played at last year,
but Obert said they also
won't revert completely
to the slow-down, grind-
ing half-court style that
served them well with a
more limited roster two
years ago.
"We'll probably be
somewhere in between,"
the coach said. "We'll still
grind a little bit, but we'll
still play fast and try to let
pressure help us get some
easy baskets. I think we've
got a chance to be pretty
good defensively. We were
able to pressure a little bit
in the summer."

Roethlisberger has

sprained shoulder

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger
left Heinz Field on Monday night with
his sprained right shoulder in a sling.
When he walks back in ready to play is
anybody's guess.
Tomlin called Pittsburgh's franchise
quarterback "questionable" but other-
wise offered little detail Tuesday, less
than 24 hours after Roethlisberger was
pounded into the ground by Kansas City
Chiefs linebackers Tamba Hali and Jus-
tin Houston in the third quarter of Pitts-
burgh's 16-13 overtime victory.
"He is being evaluated," Tomlin said.
"Obviously this injury puts his partici-
pation in the questionable category for
this week."
Roethlisberger left the game and went
to the hospital to for an MRI-exam. He
underwent more tests on Tuesday to de-
termine the severity of the sprain to the
sternoclavicular (SC) joint in his throw-
ing shoulder.
The SC joint connects the collarbongto
the sternum. Treatment can range from
a few days of rest and ice to as much as
4-6 weeks according to Dr. Victor Kha-
bie, chief of sports medicine at Northern
Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco,
"You could tape it, you could do that
stuff but the reality is those ligaments
just have to heal," Khabie said. "If you
go throwing, you slow down the healing
Roethlisberger was scrambling in the
pocket to buy time on Pittsburgh's first
possession of the second half when
Houston wrapped up Roethlisberger's
legs and Hali slammed into him, driv-
ing the quarterback's right side into the
damp Heinz Field turf. Roethlisberger
didn't appear to be hurt walking off the
field but quickly made his way to the
locker room before leaving the stadium
with the game still in progress.
"It didn't seem like a tough hit ... but
he came to the sideline and next thing
you know he was gone," Pittsburgh'left
tackle Max Starks said. "I'm hoping it
was nothing serious. Honestly it didn't
seem like it."
If Roethlisberger can't play, the Steel-
ers (6-3) will turn veteran backup Byron

Leftwich, who completed 7 of 14 passes
for 73 yards in relief as Pittsburgh won
its fourth straight game thanks to Shaun
Suisham's 23-yard field goal 51 seconds
into the extra period.
The 32-year-old Leftwich hasn't start-
ed a game since 2009, when he went 0-3
for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His last
victory came on Oct. 8, 2006 when the
Jacksonville Jaguars beat the New York
Jets 41-0.
The former first round pick has spent
most of the last six years as a backup
while dealing with a series of significant
injuries. He missed all of last season af-
ter breaking his arm in a preseason game
and threw seven regular season passes
in 2010 after hurting his knee at the end
of training camp.
Though there was a bit pf rust after
getting pressed into service, Leftwich
did guide the Steelers to a go-ahead field
goal in the fourth quarter.
"I try to prepare as if I am the starter
every week," Leftwich said. "Nothing
will change. I wish Ben the best. I hope
he is healthy. Other than that I will be
ready to go."
Leftwich insists he has mastered of-
fensive coordinator Todd Haley's play-
book and Leftwich's teammates are
hardly concerned if he's under center on
"We don't have a true rookie back there
that's never taken a snap before," Starks
said. "We feel good about who we have
back there if it is Byron. We'll move for-
ward and wait Ben's return if that's the
Roethlisberger isn't the only big name
that could be out on Sunday. Safety Troy
Polamalu continues to be plagued by a
right calf injury and Tomlin described
him "doubtful" to play against the
Safety Ryan Clark sustained a concus-
sion for the second time in.three games
when he took a knee to the head from
Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe,
though Tomlin said it appears Clark is
Maybe, but it's not exactly the way the
Steelers wanted to be heading into a
crucial three-game stretch that includes
two games against the hated Ravens in
three weeks.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) is sacked by Kansas City Chiefs outside
linebacker Tamba Hali (91) during their game on Monday nightin Pittsburgh.

Staff Report

Harvey Harrell is Jackson
County's Cotton Farmer of
the Year.
He has 385 acres of
cotton in the ground this
year, planting it in batches
over time this growing
season. A dry-land cotton
farmer, he said he "de-
pends on the good Lord
to send the rain," but does
all he can to manage the
things he can control.
Staggering his plantings,
for instance, helped him
miminize yield losses
associated with the
early-season drought

that farmers faced this
year. By waiting to plant
some of his acreage,
the late-planted batches
did well with the advan-
tage of rain that came
later in the year.
He said he doesn't
know why he was selected
for honors this year, but
was appreciative of it.
"I will not say that I'm
an excellent yield in
cotton, but I try to make
good on the manage-
ment," he said. "You do
what you can with the
herbicides, the fertilizer
and the timing, and if you
do your part, you can

succeed. I don't pin flow-
ers on myself and I don't
think I'm an expert by
any means. I don't have
auto steer on my tractor,
and boy you can tell it.
My rows are crooked; but
maybe the water stays
on my field a little better
that the straight-plowed.
Now that's a joke, but I do
feel fortunate that I can
have some success. I'm a
one-man operation, pretty
much, but I do hire some
part-time help sometimes.
This is the first time I've
won this award, and I
appreciate the recogni-
tion, I really do."

Harrell owns about 40
acres of land, but rents
most of what he plants.
He has planted on Howell
Farms in something of
a partnership with the
owner, for instance, for
the past 38 years.
Harrell grew up in
Jackson County and
moved away soon after
graduating high school.
He moved back at the age
of 27, and farms full-time.
He also plants peanuts,
with 180 acres of nuts
in the ground this year,
working land located
mainly in the Campbell-
ton area.

UF and other land grant universities celebrate 150 years

Jackson County Extension Director

Editor's note: Mayo first
wrote this piece in July of this
year to mark the 150th anniver-
sary of the land grant university
program. Through it, UF-IFAS
assists local growers and those
across the state with research
and other help in an attempt
to improve outcomes-for the
people who grow the food that
feeds the nation. It is re-printed
here as a reminder of the value
it brings to the agricultural

In the midst of the Civil
War, a key piece of legisla-
tion that shaped our great
nation was signed into law.
On July 2, 1862, Abraham
Lincoln signed the Mor-
rill "Land Grant" Act that
created the land Grant
University System. The Act
granted' funds from the
sale Federal land, located
mainly in the western ter-
ritories, to each state. Each
state was given 30,000
acres for each representa-
tive in congress, based on
the 1860 census. Proceeds
from the sale of these lands
were invested in a perpet-
ual endowment fund that
was used to create and
maintain public universi-
ties to provide education
in agricultural science,
military tactics, and engi-
neering. At a time when
this nation was torn apart
by war with only minimal
funding available, a great
effort was started to edu-
cate the common man in
practical sciences.
Prior to the Civil War, ed-
ucation in this country fol-
lowed the European mod-
el, where only rich men
were educated to become
doctors, lawyers, minis-
ters, or businessmen at
private colleges. Everyone
else was either a farmer or
tradesman. The birth of the
Land Grant or Public Uni-
versity System provided an
opportunity for the com-
mon man be educated. In
1860, the average farm fed
five people. According to
American Farm Bureau,
one farm today feeds 155
people and is becoming
more efficient every year,
due in large part to the
research, teaching and ex-

tension service provided
by public "Land Grant"
Universities in all 50 states.
Florida has two land-grant
institutions, the University
of Florida and Florida A&M
University, Together, they
have taken countless steps
to establish and maintain
agriculture and natural
resources as the state's sec-
ond-largest industry.
Agricultural and food-
related industries are big
business here in Jackson
County as well. In 2011,
Jackson was once again the
top ranked county in Flor-
ida for cotton production
(44,797 acres), and peanut
production (31,551 acres),
the second ranked county
for corn (3,165), and the
7th ranked county with
28,000 beef cattle. Accord-
ing to a 2009 University of
Florida Study, agriculture
and food related industries
generated $289 million in
revenues in Jackson Coun-
ty. Almost a quarter of the
jobs (22.5%) in the county
are related to agriculture
and food distribution. Of
these 4,165 jobs, 1,153 are
directly related to farm
production, processing,
marketing, and farming
support services.
Here in Jackson County,
we see the benefits of what
began 150 years ago with
the Land Grant Act. Cur-
rently, there are 353 alumni
of the University of Florida
living in Jackson County,
with 94 who were educated
in agriculture and natural
resources. Jackson County
currently has 41 students
enrolled at the University
of Florida, with 10 enrolled
in the College of Agricul-
ture and Life Sciences. The
North Florida Research and
Education Center, located
just south of Greenwood is
engaged in the research of
peanut, cattle, and forage
production. Through this
Research Station, new va-
rieties of peanuts, grasses,
small grains and numer-
ous production advances
have been developed. The
Florida Bull Test annually
allows cattlemen to pur-
chase proven bulls that
have greatly enhanced the
productivity of their herds.
The Jackson County Ex-

tension Service provides
"County Agents" who work
every day with farmers,
ranchers, gardeners, fami-
lies, and kids enrolled in 4-
H, the official youth orga-
nization of the University
of Florida. In 2011, Jackson
County Extension Service
provided numerous edu-
cational training that had
an attendance of 12,611
people. Not only do agents
provide formal training
seminars, in 2011 they also
provided one-on-one con-
sultations with 826 indi-
viduals through office and

field visits, and 5,546 indi-
viduals by phone or email.
In addition to the County
Agents, there were also 226
Master Gardner and 4-H
volunteers that donated
6,911 hours of their time to
work with citizens.
Through research, teach-
ing and the extension ser-
vice, the University of Flor-
ida, and Florida A & M are
still engaged in the Morrill
"Land Grant" mission of
providing education to the
"common man" to provide
solutions for life in Jackson

nnie's IMailbox

Dear Annie: Recently, my husband men-
tioned that he wanted to get together
with some friends for a project. I encour-
aged him to invite the guys to our home
to work on it. I thought it would be a few
hours, but it ended up taking well over
12. They arrived early in the morning and
stayed until late that night, taking over
our living room.
I suggested in private to my husband
that he should have wrapped things
up by late afternoon. The project is for
fun. It's not like they had a deadline for
work. It is also designed to continue on a
weekly basis for the next six months, so
committing to only a portion of the day
would not have made much difference.
My husband, however, is a people
pleaser and didn't feel he could ask his
friends to leave before they wanted to.
Would it be wise to discuss a lax but
scheduled time of arrival and departure


Orison Swett Marden was an author in the New
Thought Movement and a successful hotel owner
who also had a degree in medicine. He said, "Suc-
cess is not measured by what you accomplish,
but by the opposition you have encountered, and
the courage with which you have maintained the
struggle against overwhelming odds."
Not so at the bridge table! Success is measured by
your score, and the worse the opposition, the better
your score rates to be. However, sometimes you
must decide what to do, and often then your play
will be governed by the odds.
In this example, South is in four spades. West leads
the heart king and East drops the jack. What should
South do?
North had a minimum hand for raising spades.
South's jump to four spades was a slight overbid, but
we all yearn to try for the vulnerable game bonus.
Assuming a 3-2 spade break, South can see four
losers in his hand: one spade, two hearts and one
diamond. He does not have the dummy entries to
establish clubs, so must ruff a heart on the board.
How many hearts did East begin with?
If one, South must take the first trick. But if East
started with a doubleton, South must duck at trick
one. Which is preferable?,
Let's look at the a priori odds. West will have six
hearts 8.57 percent of the time and seven hearts
only 1.43 percent qf the time.
So, South should duck the first trick, take the sec-
ond, cash his two top trumps, then ruff his last heart
on the board.

with them in the future, or am I being
unfair to suggest that the party should
move elsewhere after 10 hours? I want
my husband and his friends to feel
comfortable in our home, but I also don't
want my house invaded for such a long
period of time.

Dear East Coast: It is always wise to
discuss time constraints in advance, par-
ticularly when overstaying'annoys you so
much. Some wives would have no objec-
tion to a 12-hour marathon. They would
occupy themselves elsewhere, and this
is one option for you. But please discuss
reasonable limits with your husband,
allowing yourself to be the "bad guy" in
order for him to ask his friends to leave
when you've had enough. There is no
point creating ill will with one's spouse if
it could easily be avoided.

Clouds part, solar eclipse darkens north Australia

The Associated Press

SYDNEY- From boats
bobbing on the Great
Barrier Reef, to hot air
balloons hovering over the
rainforest, and the hilltops
and beaches in between,
tens of thousands of sci-
entists, tourists and ama-
teur astronomers watched.
as the sun, moon and
Earth aligned and plunged
northern Australia into
darkness during a total
solar eclipse Wednesday.
Stubborn clouds that
many feared would
ruin the view parted
- somewhat in north
Queensland, defying
forecasts of a total eclipse-
viewing bust and reliev-
ing spectators who had
fanned out to glimpse the
celestial phenomenon.
"Immediately before,
I was thinking, Are we
gonna see this?' And we
just had a fantastic display
-*it was just beautiful,"

said Terry Cuttle of the As-
tronomical Association of
Queensland, who has seen
a dozen total solar eclipses
over the years. "And right
after it finished, the clouds
came back again. It really
adds to the drama of it."
Spectators whooped and
clapped with delight as
the moon passed between
the sun and Earth, leaving
a slice of the continent's
northeast in sudden
Starting just after dawn,
the eclipse cast its 95-
mile shadow in Australia's
Northern Territory,
crossed the northeast tip
of the country and was
swooping east across the
South Pacific, where no
islands are in its.direct
path. A partial eclipse
will be visible from east
Indonesia, the eastern half
of Australia, New Zealand,
Papua New Guinea and
southern parts of Chile
and Argentina. Totality

- the darkness that hap-
pens at the peak of the
eclipse lasted just over
two minutes in the parts
of Australia where it was
Gloomy weather had left
many eclipse-chasers who
had traveled to Australia
from around the globe
anxious that they wouldn't
be able to see a thing.
But the clouds moved in
time for many to watch
as the moon blotted out
the sun's rays and cast a
shadow over the tropical
Hank Harper, 61, and
his two children flew from
Los Angeles just to see the
eclipse, and feared the
clouds would ruin their
adventure. The three of
them boarded a hot air
balloon filled with other
eager tourists, crossed
their fingers and were
rewarded with a perfect
"We gambled everything

- drove through the rain
and didn't even know if
the balloon was going to
go up," he said by phone
from the hot air balloon
as he and Harrison, 10,
and Reilly, 12, watched the
sun's rays re-emerge from
behind the moon while
kangaroos hopped on
the ground below. "It was
everything I could have
hoped for."
On a dive-boat drifting
along the blue waters of
the Great Barrier Reef, a
cheer of relief erupted as
the clouds moved away
at the moment of total
eclipse, followed by a hush
as darkness fell across
the water. One scuba
diver floated on his back
in the sea, watching the

phenomenon unfold as
he bobbed in the waves.
Birds on a nearby island,
startled by the sudden lack
of light, began to stir.
"It was absolutely
amazing. We were com-
ing out this morning
and there was a wee bit
of cloud around and we
were apprehensive," Adam
O'Malley of the Passions
of Paradise dive company
said by phone from his
boat. "We got a full view -
absolutely breathtaking."
Some Queensland
hotels have been booked
up for more than three
years and more than
50,000 people have
flooded into the region to
watch the solar spectacle,
said Jeff Gillies, regional

director of Queensland
Skygazers crowded along
palm-fringed beaches,
fields and clifftops to
watch the event. Fitness
fanatics gathered for the
Solar Eclipse Marathon,
where the first rays of the
sun re-emerging from
behind the moon was the
starting gun. Some began
partying days ago at a
weeklong eclipse festival.
Scientists were studying
how animals respond to
the eclipse, with underwa-
ter cameras capturing the
effects of sudden darkness
on the creatures of the
Great Barrier Reef.
The next total solar
eclipse won't happen until
March 2015.
