Meeting raises concerns about springs report
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Crop fertilizer and live-
stock waste are the two
major contributors to the
excessive levels of nutri-
ents in the water flow-
ing out of Jackson Blue
Spring and in the water at
Merritt's Mill pond, a state
It is estimated that, to-
gether, they sent close to
640 tons of nitrogen into-
to the system, about 70
percent of the total. The
rest, according to the
study, was attributable
to the 5,500 septic tanks
in Jackson County, rain-
fall and other potential
Because nutrients create
an ideal environment for
algae to feed upon, they
represent a danger to the
fish and other creatures
who live in tie waters of
Blue Spring and Merritt's
Mill Pond. One person at-
tending the session also
pointed out that the water
in the springs and pond
come frqm the ground-
water, the same source as
human drinking water,
and that therefore the
numbers suggest there's a
danger to-humans as well.
Created by the Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection as part of a
draft plan to reduce the
nutrient levels by 90 per-
.cent over time, the report
was compiled using data
collected by various agen-
cies over the course of at
DEBORAH BUCKHALTER/JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN
At center table, Jackson County Extension Director Doug Mayo (left) and springs activist Chad
Taylor were among the people who attended a workshop Wednesday about the state's proposed
mandate to significantly reduce the nitrate levels in Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt's Mill
Pond. Mayo and Taylor, or representatives from their separate interest groups, will likely be
among the stakeholders who will be called upon to participate in a series of sessions in an
attempt to create consensus on what can be done to meet that goal. Others who attended the
Wednesday workshop included (in foreground) Graham Lewis of the Northwest Florida Water
Management District, and (back table, from left) Mark Miles and Rex Patterson of North Florida
Mobile Irrigation and Jackson County Administrator Ted Lakey.

SThe state wants to re-
duce the major nutrient
nitrate from -its cur-
rent average level of 3.5
milligrams per liter of
water to 0.35 mg/l: It can't
be achieved overnight, of-
ficials,) acknowledge, but
- movement toward the goal
must start soon to make a
/ difference in the foresee-
Sable future, they say.
SAnd they're asking
stakeholders to help come
up with a specific plan to
do that. Once the target
reduction is accepted by
the state and adopted
as a regulation, the state
will coordinate a series of
stakeholder sessions to
create- a Basin Manage-
ment Action. Plan to meet
the adopted nutrient
According to the man
tasked with coordinat-
ing the development of
the action plan, Steve Ci-
occia, the process could
take 18 months or longer.'
The first five years after
adoption of the target
reduction, he said, will
likely be devoted to set-
ting up the stakeholders
group, developing the ba-
sic 'restoration plan and
preparing to implement
it, .with annual review
and revisions ongoing
throughout that period
and several more years.
The second five years
would likely focus on
measuring the success
of the plan, and.the next
five years would be dedi-
cated to making adjust-
ments that could increase
its success going forward
into the next five year
period and beyond.
Since agriculturists are
the main contributors to
the nutrient level, if the
study's numbers are cor-
rect, farmers and ranch-
ers are being encour-

Doug Mayo said there has

ers already employ best

That .35 is an unattainable
goal. I don't know that
we can grow crops and
people can have sep-
tic tanks and fertilize
their lawns and all those
things, and achieve a .35.
"Certainly we can work
together in trying to man-
age nitrogen use, and I
think that's the intent of
the best practices, but
I'm concerned that the
goal is not achievable."
Springs activist Chad
Taylor also was -at the
meeting and took excep-
tionto one of Mayo's other
comments in which Mayo
indicated that he felt
the springs nitrate levels
were in part the result of
activities elsewhere in the
southern U.S., since they
share the aquifer under-
ground. The state official
concurred with Taylor's
observation that the wa-.

likely measuring at levels
attributable to activities

Expert panel: NASA seems lost in space, needs goal
AP Science Writer
WASHINGTON NASA, the
agency that epitomized the
"Right Stuff," looks lost in space
and doesn't have a clear sense
of where it is going, an inde-
pendent panel of science and
engineering experts said in a
stinging report Wednesday.
SThe report by a panel of the
distinguished National Acad-
emy of Sciences doesn't blame
the space agency; it faults the
president, Congress and the
nation for not giving NASA bet-
ter direction. At the same time,
it said NASA is doing little to
further the White House's goal
of sending, astronauts to an
In one withering passage, the
panel said NASA's mission and
vision statements are so vague
and "generic" that they "could
apply to almost any govern-
ment research and development
agency, omitting even the words
The space shuttles were re-
tired in 2011 and are now mu-
seum pieces. Few people are
paying attention to the Interna-
tional Space Station, and Amer-
ican astronauts have to rely on
Russian spaceships to get there
and back. Meanwhile, kocket-
building is being outsourced to
private companies, and a com-
mercial venture plans to send
people to the moon by the end
of the decade.
Academy panel member Bob
Crippen, a retired NASA man-
ager and astronaut who piloted
the first space shuttle mission,
said he has never seen the space
agency so adrift. He said that in-
cludes the decade between the
end of the Apollo moon landings
in the early 1970s and the begin-
ning of the shuttle program.
S"I think people (at NASA) want
to be focused a little more and
know where they are going,"
Crippen told The Associated
NASA spokesman David
Weaver defended the agency,
saying in an emailed statement
that it has clear and challenging
goals. He listed several projects,
including continued use of the
SInternational Space Station and
efforts to develop a heavy-duty
rocket and crew capsule ca-
pable of taking astronauts into

expert who advised the Obama
campaign in 2008, said the

President Barack Obama told
Sthe space agency-in 2010 to plan
to send astronauts to an asteroid
by 2025 as a training ground for
an eventual Mars landing. But
the 80-page panel report and its
authors said there is little sup-
port for that idea within NASA
and the international space
The agency hasn't done much
to-determine an asteroid target,
and its strategic plan avoids
mention of an asteroid mis-
sion, the report said. Also, pan-
el members said NASA hasn't
allocated much money for it.
"More than two years after the
president announced the in-
terim goal of sending humans
to an asteroid by 2025, there has
been little effort to initiate such
a mission," the report said.
Crippen said an asteroid mis-
sion just doesn't make sense
technically or politically and
may just be too tough.
"I hate to use the word credi-
ble, but people don't buy it," said
academy panel member Marcia
Smith, president of Space and
Technology Policy Group. "They
don't feel that the asteroid
mission is the right one."

chairman Albert Carnesale, for-
mer chancellor of the University
of California, Los Angeles. Inside
NASA, "people were wonder-
ing: What are we doing to actu-
ally accomplish this?" Carnesale
said at a news conference.
After the 2003 shuttle Colum-
bia accident, the independent
board investigating what wrong
said NASA needed a bigger long-
term plan for human explora-
tion. Then-President George W.
Bush announced that the shut-
tle would be retired and that
NASA's new goal would be to
return astronauts to the moon
with a permanent base there as
a stepphig stone to Mars. -
When Obama took office, he
appointed an outside commit-
tee that said the moon plan
wasn't workable. The commit-
tee offered several options, in-
cluding an asteroid mission as a
possible stepping stone to Mars.
Obama chose that path.
Syracuse University pub-
lic policy professor W Henry
Lambright, who wasn't part of
the latest study but has written
about space policy, said Obama
has not sold NASA, Congress or
the country on his plan.
"I really think it's Obama's
fault," Lambright said. NASA "is
suffering from benign neglect."

professor Howard McCurdy,
who also wasn't on the panel,
said he sees the problem more
as a lack of money than a lack of

The Marianna Bulldogs used
a 7-1 run to close the game to
pull off a 51-48 victory over'the
Holmes County Blue Devils on
Tuesday night at home, notching
their second straight impressive
home win after beating Bay High
last week. :- .. ...
Holmes Country led the game
41-34 going into the fourth quar-

just three minutes remaining.
But Bulldogs coach Travis Blan-

trap and it yielded key turnovers
that led to easy Marianna bas-
ketsin transition. '
Shaquarious Baker made two
key free throws at the end to0
help seal the win, and the Bull-
dogs survived what Blanton later
termed "a man's game" due to
the physicalityon the inside.
"It was just a war. Both teams
had people falling all over the
floor 1 and knocking people
down," the coach said. "Both
teams really battled. I was really
proud of the way our guys bat-
tled and didn't back down from

The Pirates' Darius Williams drives past Graceville's CJ Miller during a game Tuesday night in Sneads.
Sneads moves to 3-0 with win over Graceville
SNEADS The Sneads Pirates weren't
considered by many to be among the
favorites in District 3-1A going into this
seasonibut after Tuesday's latest league
win, 46-45 over the Graceville Tigers, it's
Sthe Pirates who have early pole position
in the standings at 3-0.
"It doesn't really mean .much at this
point in the season," Sneads coach Kelvin
Johnson said after the game. "Cottondale
is getting a player back and Graceville
is getting a couple players back. What it
does mean is that we're moving in aposi-
tive direction and getting better."
The Pirates got 18 points from Darius
Williams and held off a late charge by
theTigers in the fourth quarter to escape
with their third straight win.
Sneads led 46-41 with' 3:06 to6play, but
the Tigers cut it to three with a bucket by
Marquis WVhite. who later came up with
a steal and scored again to make it 46-45
with 44 seconds to play.
The Grace\llUe press then forced anoth-
.er Sneads turnover, and the Tigers took
timeout with 38.7 seconds on the clock.

The Malone Tigers, added yet
another lopsided victory to their
resume Tuesday night at home,
crushing the Paxton Bobcats
93-48 thanks to a 46-4 run that
spanned the second and third
The game was close early on,
with Malone leading 24-21 after
one quarter before Paxton came
back to tie it up at 27-27 early in
the second period.
But Chai Baker answered with
a four-point play, which sparked
an avalanche of Tiger points, as
they outscored the Bobcats 28-4
to finish the half and took a 55-

Things went from bad to worse
for the Bobcats in the third, as
they were shut out by the Tigers
"We hit a couple of threes back
to back (in the second quarter)
and the floodgates just opened
up," Malone coach Steven Welch
said after the game. "Before you
know it, it was a 20-point lead. It

Baker scored 25 of his game-
high 29 points in the first half to

But Marianna's defense

Bulldogs in the game long
enough to make one last
"The kids did a good job

and did a good job of

court," Blanton said. "The
kids played with some

"Holmes County has got
a nice team, they just don't
have a lot of depth, and I
think we wore them down
a little bit."
Marianna improved to
4-1 on the season, with
the only loss coming on a
neutral court to a Malone
team that has been as
dominant as any in the
area to start the year.
Blanton said that this
Bulldogs team isn't the
most talented that he has
had, but it is one of the
most fun he's gotten to
"You're not going to
come watch us and see
anything great, but you'll
see a great effort," he said.
"There may not be a Divi-
sion-I player out there yet,
but these kids are going to
play their hearts out and
leave it all on the floor.
Any real basketball fan
can appreciate that."

Dear Annie: My incredible husband
of two years has a 4-year-old daughter
with his ex-wife. I have actively helped
raise "Christie" since she was barely a
We haven't communicated with the
mother since the time we took her to
court for refusing visitation, but my
husband and I have always provided for
Christie in every way possible. This little
girl loves me. I have never tried to replace
her mother, encouraged or expected her
to call me "Mom," or even so much as
talked badly about her mother in front
But.lately, Christie has been question-
ing my relationship with her father, say-
ing the reason her mommy and daddy
are not together is because of me. When I
ask her to do something she doesn't want
to do, she says her mommy says she
doesn't have to listen to me because I am
not her mother. Even worse, she's been
told that when my husband and I have a
It is pleasant to report that more is being written for
near-beginners. "A First Book of Bridge Problems" by
Patrick O'Connor (Master Point Press) contains 50 el-
ementary declarer-play and defense questions, with
the answers overleaf. There is also a description of
the bidding system used (very basic), an explanation
of the responses to Stayman, a glossary of terms used
in the book, the themes of the problems and the key
points to remember.
This deal is the last in the book, presumably meant
to be the hardest. Take the East hand. You are defend-
ing against five clubs. Partner leads the spade king.
How would you signal?
North had an unenviable choice over one spade:
pass, a negative double and two clubs. Pass was un-
desirable with six points. A negative double was out-
side the range of this book (and not without risk). Two
clubs, though imperfect, was reasonable. You natu-
rally jumped to game, although four spades would
have been defeated after a club lead. But South bid
five clubs as an each-way bet.
In the book, O'Connor, who is Australian, asks the
reader: How do you plan the defense? My phraseology
was an attempt to make the problem a tad tougher.
You must not signal. You know South has at most one
spade. And you can see a likely three defensive tricks
in one spade, one diamond and one club. However, if
you signal with the spade three at trick one, partner
might think that is showing an odd number of spades
and try to cash a second trick in the suit. Overtake
with your spade ace and shift to the diamond king.
baby of our own, Daddy won't love her as
much as the new baby.
Christie is obviously too young to
draw these conclusions on her own, so
Mom is giving her these impressions or
telling her these things outright. I worry
it is going to cause Christie' to resent me.
How can we handle this?
-STEPMOM IN THE MIDDLE
Dear Stepmom: Many courts now
recognize parental alienation. Suggest
that your husband speak to his lawyer
about this possibility. In the meantime,
when Christie is with you, do your best to
counter the negative brainwashing.
Lether know how much you love her
and always will; that a new baby means
she will be more important than ever,
and the new baby will need a big sister;
that everyone in the household has
chores to do, and you want her to learn
to be a big girl. As she gets older, she
will recognize her mother's bitterness, ,
so please don't play into that drama.

Sacks, defeats mounting for Wake
The Associated Press
DAVIE While Miami
end Cameron Wake
accumulates sacks at a
rate unprecedented in
franchise history, his team
keeps getting thrown for
Barring a late-season
surge starting Sunday at
San Francisco, the Dol-
phins (5-7) will finish with
a losing record for the
fourth consecutive year.
It so happens Wake, one
of the NFL's premier pass
rushers, joined Miami four
"I hate losing," he said
Wednesday, "more than I
The Dolphins are 25-
35 since 2009, but don't
blame Wake. During that
span he's tied for fourth in
the NFL with 38 sacks,
and ranks fourth in this
year with 10. m
This season, 7 of his
sacks have come in de-
feats, including one Sun-
day against New England.
But he keeps trying.
"You've got to be
really stubborn to play
this game, and probably
more so on defense and
the position I play," Wake
said. "Ninety percent of
the time, I don't get the job
done. You've got to erase
that last play and give the
exact same 100 percent ef-
fort one minore time.
"So whether we're 0-15
or 15-0, I'm going to give
that effort. Every game
I'm going to give my all. It
doesn't grind me down be-
cause I feel like every time
you go out there, it's an op-
portunity to win."

Lady Pirates win in OT
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Sneads Lady Pirates
overcame a late double
digit deficit in the fourth
quarter to pull off a 45-38
overtime victory over the
Graceville Lady Tigers on
Tuesday night in Sneads.
Sneads, now 2-2 on the
season and 1-2 in District
3-1A, trailed by 12 points
with three minutes to play,
but stormed back to tie
the game on a basket with
Tasherica McMillon in the
Graceville's Zay Hen-
derson had a chance to
win the game with two
free throws with three
seconds on the clock, but
she missed both, sending
the game into OT.
The extra session was
dominated by the Lady Pi-
rates, who got a big three-
pointer from McMillon
and four clutch free throws
byAaliyahWilliams to out-
score Graceville 10-3.
"The girls just didn't give
up andfoundawayto scrap
back into it," Sneads coach
Andy Ward said after the
game. "I told them to give
me everything they've got
in overtime and they did.
They could've laid down
and quit when they were
down, but they stepped
up and battled back. I was
proud of them for that."
McMillon finished with
14 points to lead Sneads,
while Logan Neel added
10 points, and Williams
Henderson had 12 to
pace the Lady Tigers, with
Shanice Mack adding 12,
and Madison McDaniel
Sneads led 14-3 after the
first period, but Graceville
rallied to cut the margin to
two at halftime and then
surge ahead in the third

The Cottondale Lady Hornets picked up
their second district victory of the season
STuesday night at home, routing theWewav-
hitchka Lady Gators 60-30.
With the win, Cottondale, improved
- to 3-6 overall' and 2-1 in District 3-1A
The Lady Hornets were in fro0t from
start to finish, leading by.11 after oneo
quarter, 14 at the half, and by 20 going into
the fourth quarter.
Khadejah Ward and Brooklyne Brown led
a balanced scoring effort with nine points
each, followed by Jakeena Borders with
eight, and Aaliyah Blount with seven.
Cottondale coach Shan Pittman said she
was happy to see the points being spread
outmore evenly, as opposed to Ward do-
ing the bulk of the scoring as has been the
case early in the season.
"It was good to see everybody score and
to have balanced scoring for a change. It
was nice to see that. It takes some pres-
sure off of (Ward)," she said. "I thought
the girls played together as a team, shared
the ball pretty' well, and rebounded pretty
well. We're improving."
Tsara Peace also added six points and a
team-high 11 rebounds for CHS.
SThe Lady Hornets will next compete in
the' Andy Hart Memorial Invitational in
Mayo this weekend, taking on Oak Hall
on Friday and 3:30 p.m. Central Time, and

Lady Bulldogs rout Rutherford
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Lady Bull-

win of the season over
Rutherford on Tuesday
night in Panama City, beat-
ing the Lady Rams 61-34.
In the first meeting be-
tween the teams in Mari-

But Tuesday's matchup
wasn't nearly as competi-
tive, with Marianna jump-

Although Graceville was
able to force some turn-
overs late in the game with
its trapping defense, John-
son said that his team's
ability to take care of the-
ball through most of the
game was the difference in
"I thought Jalon Dan-
iels' and Hunter John-.
son -played outstanding
against the pressure," he
said. "We mostly got where

were able to get a lead and
Daniels finishd*d with 10
points for the Pirates, and
Johnson knocked down a
pair of timely three-point-
ers in the third quarter to
help turn back Graceville
The seven first half
points by Daniels were key
in helping spark an 18-4
Pirates run that turned a
10-3 deficit into a 21-16
It was even more im-
that Sneads' top scoring
guard, senior Devin Hayes,
sprained his ankle in the
first minute of the game
and did not return.
"I was proud of the boys
for battling the whole
game even after one of
your leading scorers goes
down right off the bat," the
Sneads coach said. "Losing
Devin was a big loss."
Daniels got his team go-
ing late in the first quarter
with a pair of baskets to
help trim the lead to 12-9,
and then added a driving
basket to give the Pirates
their first lead at 14-12
with 3:48 until halftime.
j Williams got on track
ing out to a 19-7 lead to
start the game and never
leading by less than double
digits the rest of the way.
"We jumped on them real
early and never backed the
pressure off," Lady Bull-
dogs coach Chucky Brown
said. "The thing I was
impressed with was that
we actually played better
together and had more
communication. I'm hop-
ing we can continue with
the communication and
Latia Bass led Marianna
with seven of his 10 first
half points in the second
period, while the Sneads
zone defense did its job
by holding the Tigers
scoreless until a jumper
by White with 2:46 on the
SWhite finished with 27
points, but there was little
in the way of offensive bal-
ance for the Tigers, whose
effort seemed to rankle the
mood of their coach, Matt
"We got outplayed and
outhustled," the coach
said. "Sometimes when
kids hear how good they're
supposed to be, they don't
play at the level they need
to-because they're listen-
ing to everyone tell them
how good they are."
